About Liqueurs, Tea, and Qi
Liqueurs date back to the days of that great doctor of antiquity, Hippocrates, who added cinnamon to fermented honey to make Hippocras, which was still fashionable 2,000 years later during the reign of Louis XIV. In the Middle Ages, monks were responsible for the physical health (as well as spiritual salvation) of the people and had both the time and the gardens to experiment. They understood that alcohol preserved the healing quality of herbs, so herbal liqueurs became an important form of medicine. In short order, liqueurs also became a drinking delicacy.
Tea is grown in tea gardens and estates around the world, resulting in thousands of flavorful variations that often take their name from the district in which they're grown. Great tea, like fine wine, possesses complexity, balance, unique flavor profiles, and a long history. Tea is the most widely consumed prepared beverage on earth, and has been prized for its properties of comfort, warmth, health, and flavor since ancient times.
