BRING CULTURE DOWN TO EARTH PART III (TEA)


Continuing on the theme of 'food and culture', here is a collage you and your students can discuss. The topic is 'tea'. Pictured are types of tea (TEA tea, NOT herbal teas). Following the collage is a set of questions to help the discussion along. There are also some hints to help them get more out of the collage. Finally, there are the answers to collage pictures and additional materials for teachers to extend discussion and activities in the class.

9. WHITE TEA.



 ADDITIONAL MATERIAL FOR TEACHERS

1. Tea is an aromatic beverage commonly prepared by pouring hot or boiling water over cured leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis.

2. After water, tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world.

3. #8 of the collage above is what we often buy as 'black tea' in the supermarket, in tea bags (or sometimes loose-leaf form).

4. Depending on how tea is processed from the green leaves, teas are often classified into the following types:
white/light yellow, yellow, green, oolong, and black.

5. Kukicha, or twig tea, also known as bōcha, is a Japanese blend made of stems, stalks, and twigs. It is available as a green tea or in more oxidized processing. There is also san-nen bancha, which is made of leaves and stems and aged for 3 years. 


6. Tea is also mixed with other plants. For example, around Asia, Jasmine Tea is popular.
Earl Grey and Lady Grey are black teas mixed with citrus peel and/or citrus oil.

7. Herbal teas (usually infusions made from dried flowers, leaves, or fruits of other plants, not camellia) are often drunk because they are not as stimulating as tea. However, yerba maté, from South America, has caffeine in it.
