History of Iranian Tea

Iran is one of the world’s great tea-drinking nations. There are many stories about how tea was discovered. The history of tea in Iran dates back to the 15th century. Due to the trades with China and India, and also the convenient Silk Road, lots of tea was imported then and Iranians started to substitute tea for coffee. They called it ‘Chai’ just like the word ‘Cha’ that first Chinese used. Iran explorers have written about tea houses, where authorities and rich people gathered and drank tea. The earliest evidence in both cases dates back to the sixteenth century—that is, sometime before either coffee or tea is recorded in any European annuls. First, some farmers in the suburb of Lahijan City started planting tea and it gradually widespread among all people in Gilan City. The specific moist climate of northern part of Iran, which is a mountainous area, can result in harvesting a great type of tea.
