The Teha or Tea tree flourishes best
n a light soil. It is raised from seed
own in spring and transplanted in rows
I or 4 feet asunder. After 3 years the
caves are plucked, and the tree yields
hree years successively, and are then
enewed. In some provinces they
irow 0 or 7, in others 10 or 12 feet
ligh. When gathered they are first
itcamcd and then placed on copper
jarthen or iron plates over a lire, which
shrivels or curls them up ; the black
cas are then exposed to the sun the
eaves of other shrubs, resembling tea,
are sometimes fraudulently mixed with
it. I he common sorts are sold in Chi
na at 4 pence a pound, and the best at
two shillings sterling. The profit of the
Chinese merchant is from Ho to 00 per
cent. The duties in England arc cent
per cent on tho prices at the Company's
sales. The English East India Com
pany import above 30 million of lbs.
Black teas are grown chiefly in the
province of l- okcin. 1 he Chinese pre

called buoy or bo-hca. Congoo or
Congfoo is a finer kinA sold at double
the price. Soot.aong, or Souchong is
the best kid, and sold at treble. Ve
kafl :is another superior kind, but milder.
The tender leaves of young plants are
called Mostcha, or tea for the Empe
ror. The difference between green and
black tea is believed to arise from their
being dried the black on iron, and the
green on copper plates. The Chinese
keep tea a year, generally in those jars
which in liurope are used as cnimney
ornaments. They infuse it in boiling
water and drink it without milk or su
gar. They frcqnently reduce it to fine
powder, put a tea-sponfull into a cup,
fill it with boiling water, stir it and
Tea was first introduced into Eng
land about the year 1000, and was sold
at f0 shillings a pound ; 30 millions are
now used in the United Kingdom.
About 4 millions of pounds of sloe,

be annually mixed with tea before it is
