Tea first appeared in Chinese literature approximately 5,000 years ago. In ancient folklore, the first creation of the "tea" brew occured in 2738 BC when a Camellia blosssom fell into a cup of boiled drinking water for Emperor Shen Nung. Originally, tea was valued for its medicinal qualities. It has long been known that tea aids in digestion, which is why many Chinese prefer to consume it after their meal.

The elevation of tea drinking to an art form began in the 8th century, with the publication of Lu Yu's "The Classic Art of Tea." The highly esteemed poet and former Buddhist priest had strict notions about the proper procedure for brewing, steeping, and serving tea. For example, only water from a slow-moving stream was acceptable, and the tea leaves had to be placed in a porcelain cup. The perfect milieu for enjoying the finished product was in a pavilion next to a water lily pond, preferably in the company of a desirable woman.

This Chinese Tea group was started so that chinese tea lovers can come together and share this unique interest. Another objective is to hopefully spread the history of tea and also promote the "Art of Tea" so that this customary art is kept alive.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
