Cooking With Tea: Herbal Infusions For The Stoner Palate

There are two types of people in the world – those who partake in the use of marijuana and those who are too scared to come to the party. Tea lovers see the world in a similar way. There are those who love cooking with tea and freaks who have no reason to be alive. 

If you fall under the first category, you are a generally happy stoned citizen who loves a cup of chai. 

Brief history of tea

Tea has been working its magic since its birth in southwest China many moons ago. According to legend, Emperor Shen Nung discovered tea while sitting beneath a tree while his servant boiled drinking water. Some leaves from the tree blew into the water and Shen Nung, a renowned herbalist, decided to try the infusion that his servant had accidentally created. The tree was a Camellia sinensis and the resulting drink is what we now call tea.
