Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. The first chapter of her book is so right on target that I feel a little guilty for taking her ideas. But what she pointed out is that. A question arises as to the efficiency of the human body in removing all of the minerals from the ingested foods. Extensive laboratory determinations have shown.

Examples are la meaning tea purchased elsewhere and miiem wild tea gathered in the hills from the Wa people , letpet in Burmese and meng in Lamet meaning "fermented tea leaves", as well as miang in Thai "fermented tea". Most Chinese languages, such as Mandarin and Cantonese, pronounce it along the lines of cha, but Hokkien and Teochew Chinese varieties along the Southern coast of China pronounce it like teh. These two pronunciations have made their separate ways into other languages around the world. However, the form chai refers specifically to a black tea mixed with sugar or honey, spices and milk in contemporary English. However, since there are no known wild populations of this tea, the precise location of its origin is speculative. Many types of Southern Yunnan assam tea have been hybridized with the closely related species Camellia taliensis. Thus, Western Yunnan Assam tea and Indian Assam tea both may have originated from the same parent plant in the area where southwestern China, Indo-Burma, and Tibet meet.
However, as the Indian Assam tea shares no haplotypes with Western Yunnan Assam tea, Indian Assam tea is likely to have originated from an independent domestication. Some Indian Assam tea appears to have hybridized with the species Camellia pubicosta. The divergence of Chinese small leaf tea and Assam tea would correspond to the last glacial maximum.
It is also believed that in Sichuan, "people began to boil tea leaves for consumption into a concentrated liquid without the addition of other leaves or herbs, thereby using tea as a bitter yet stimulating drink, rather than as a medicinal concoction. Among the tasks listed to be undertaken by the youth, the contract states that "he shall boil tea and fill the utensils" and "he shall buy tea at Wuyang".
Through the centuries, a variety of techniques for processing tea, and a number of different forms of tea, were developed.
During the Tang dynasty, tea was steamed, then pounded and shaped into cake form,  while in the Song dynasty , loose-leaf tea was developed and became popular. During the Yuan and Ming dynasties, unoxidized tea leaves were first pan-fried, then rolled and dried, a process that stops the oxidation process that turns the leaves dark, thereby allowing tea to remain green.
In the 15th century, oolong tea, in which the leaves were allowed to partially oxidize before pan-frying, was developed. Yellow tea was an accidental discovery in the production of green tea during the Ming dynasty, when apparently sloppy practices allowed the leaves to turn yellow, but yielded a different flavour as a result.
Peter Mundy , a traveller and merchant who came across tea in Fujian in , wrote, "chaa — only water with a kind of herb boyled in it ". Tea, however, was not widely consumed in Britain until the 18th century, and remained expensive until the latter part of that period. British drinkers preferred to add sugar and milk to black tea, and black tea overtook green tea in popularity in the s. The British government removed the tax on tea, thereby eliminating the smuggling trade by The price of tea in Europe fell steadily during the 19th century, especially after Indian tea began to arrive in large quantities; by the late 19th century tea had become an everyday beverage for all levels of society.
Later, Chinese Government attempts to curtail the trade in opium with out relaxing trade restrictions on foreign goods, resulted in the Opium Wars. The Alubari tea garden was opened in and Darjeeling tea began to be produced.
He began his journey in high secrecy as his mission occurred in the lull between the Anglo-Chinese First Opium War — and Second Opium War — The British had discovered that a different variety of tea was endemic to Assam and the northeast region of India and that it was used by the local Singpho people , and these were then grown instead of the Chinese tea plant and then were subsequently hybridized with Chinese small leaf type tea as well as likely closely related wild tea species.
Using the Chinese planting and cultivation techniques, the British launched a tea industry by offering land in Assam to any European who agreed to cultivate it for export. Though at these heights the plants grow more slowly, they acquire a better flavour.
Within these botanical varieties, many strains and modern clonal varieties are known.
Leaf size is the chief criterion for the classification of tea plants, with three primary classifications being,  Assam type, characterised by the largest leaves; China type, characterised by the smallest leaves; and Cambodian type, characterised by leaves of intermediate size. The Cambod type tea C. However, later genetic work showed that it is a hybrid between Chinese small leaf tea and assam type tea. Also, the short plants bear more new shoots which provide new and tender leaves and increase the quality of the tea.
These buds and leaves are called 'flushes'.
Leaves that are slow in development tend to produce better-flavoured teas. In addition, there may be Lepidopteran leaf feeders and various tea diseases. Chemical composition See also: Phenolic content in tea and Health effects of tea Physically speaking, tea has properties of both a solution and a suspension.
It is a solution of all the water-soluble compounds that have been extracted from the tea leaves, such as the polyphenols and amino acids, but is a suspension when all of the insoluble components are considered, such as the cellulose in the tea leaves.
Black and green teas contain no essential nutrients in significant amounts, with the exception of the dietary mineral , manganese at 0. Certain types of brick tea made from old leaves and stems have the highest levels.

Lab Meat: The publicity machines are whirring at high speed, and all the chic arguments are on display. Lab meat would be kinder also, because no animals would be killed.

Food in Switzerland Earlier this year I made a trip to Switzerland to give two talks on raw milk and to visit one of my boys, who lives in Geneva. Of course, the food in Switzerland received my special attention.
