That does go way back. I didn't realize tea was in use as a beverage that long ago.

@Lips, excellent that's exactly what I was looking for.

@abcdefg, yeah that surprised me as well. And the the fact that it was in the tomb, means it was something to be treasured already at that time.

Laszlo Montgomery from China History Podcast did a 10 part series on the history of tea. It is fantastic! He goes through step by step and explains how it evolved, the western conflicts regarding it over time, and how it became what it is today. He includes vocabulary lists for us Chinese students (though it is all recording in English) and cites some fascinating resources.

Here's a "road map" to those podcasts in case you don't have time to listen to them all. Lots of information; excellent coverage of the topic.
