Tea \Tea\ (t[=e]), n. [Chin. tsh[=a], Prov. Chin. te: cf. F.
th['e].]
1. The prepared leaves of a shrub, or small tree ({Thea
Chinensis} or {Camellia Chinensis}). The shrub is a native
of China, but has been introduced to some extent into some
other countries.
[1913 Webster]

Note: Teas are classed as green or black, according to their
color or appearance, the kinds being distinguished also
by various other characteristic differences, as of
taste, odor, and the like. The color, flavor, and
quality are dependent upon the treatment which the
leaves receive after being gathered. The leaves for
green tea are heated, or roasted slightly, in shallow
pans over a wood fire, almost immediately after being
gathered, after which they are rolled with the hands
upon a table, to free them from a portion of their
moisture, and to twist them, and are then quickly
dried. Those intended for black tea are spread out in
the air for some time after being gathered, and then
tossed about with the hands until they become soft and
flaccid, when they are roasted for a few minutes, and
rolled, and having then been exposed to the air for a
few hours in a soft and moist state, are finally dried
slowly over a charcoal fire. The operation of roasting
and rolling is sometimes repeated several times, until
the leaves have become of the proper color. The
principal sorts of green tea are Twankay, the poorest
kind; Hyson skin, the refuse of Hyson; Hyson, Imperial,
and Gunpowder, fine varieties; and Young Hyson, a
choice kind made from young leaves gathered early in
the spring. Those of black tea are Bohea, the poorest
kind; Congou; Oolong; Souchong, one of the finest
varieties; and Pekoe, a fine-flavored kind, made
chiefly from young spring buds. See {Bohea}, {Congou},
{Gunpowder tea}, under {Gunpowder}, {Hyson}, {Oolong},
and {Souchong}. --K. Johnson. --Tomlinson.
[1913 Webster]

Note: "No knowledge of . . . [tea] appears to have reached
Europe till after the establishment of intercourse
between Portugal and China in 1517. The Portuguese,
however, did little towards the introduction of the
herb into Europe, and it was not till the Dutch
established themselves at Bantam early in 17th century,
that these adventurers learned from the Chinese the
habit of tea drinking, and brought it to Europe."
--Encyc. Brit.
[1913 Webster]

2. A decoction or infusion of tea leaves in boiling water;
