The origin of Tea

茶的起源

 

According to legend, in 2732 B.C. Emperor Shen Nong discovered tea accidentally when several leaves blew into his pot with boiling water. The pleasant scent immediately attracted Shen Nong and he took a few sips of the water. Legend says the Emperor Shen Nong described a warm feeling as he drank the intriguing brew as if the liquid was soothing every part of his body.

相传,公元前2732年,神农氏在大树底下生火煮水。当水烧开时,忽见有几片树叶飘落在锅中,神农氏当即闻到一股清香从锅中发出,神农好奇地走近细看,只见有几片叶子飘浮水面,水中汤色渐呈黄绿,并有清香随着蒸汽上升而缓缓散发。他用碗舀了点汁水喝,只觉味带苦涩,清香扑鼻,喝后回味香醇甘甜,而且嘴不渴了,人不累了,头脑也更清醒了,不觉大喜。据说神农氏就这样发现了“茶”。

Chinese Character “茶”(Cha)

汉字"茶"

 

Shen Nong named the brew “cha”. The written character is “茶” , which is used to illustrate wooden branches, grass and a man between the two. Both the written character and its pronunciation “cha” symbolize the way tea brought humankind into balance with nature for the Chinese culture.

神农取名为“cha”。书写的形式为“茶”,有木有草有人,意思为人在草木间。不论是书写格式还是发音,“茶”字都表现出中国文化中人与自然的平衡。

Tea is lauded for its health benefits and calming properties. Previous research has already linked tea’s healthy antioxidant properties to cutting the risk of some cancers as well as heart disease. What’s more, it can also fresh your mind and enhance the communication and relationship among people.

茶因其有益健康和令人平静的特性而备受称赞。有研究已经表明,茶具有健康的抗氧化性,降低了患某些癌症和心脏病的风险。它还可以提神,在品茶的过程中促进和朋友之间的交流和情感。
