  1. 1. BDES 310 Interaction Design TEA
  2. 2. TEA • It is an agricultural product of the leaves, leaf buds, and internodes of the Camellia sinensis plant, prepared and cured by various methods. • Tea also refers to the aromatic beverage prepared from the cured leaves by combination with hot or boiling water, and is the common name of the Camellias sinensis plant itself. •After water tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. • It has a cooling, slightly bitter, astringent flavour which many enjoy.
  3. 3. Where did it come from?It’s a beverage that was found nearly five thousand years ago in Ancient China. An old early Chinese story Emperor Shen Nung created the beverage by accident, after stopping his carriage and boiling water, some leaves fell into the hot water. It became a religious culture for Buddhists, which then made the beverage acceptable in Japanese culture. The Japanese created the art form of tea making, making the beverage an associated rich drink. The Portuguese where the first European country to have traded with East Asia for the beverage. Holland became the first to take it over to the far West of the world and introduced it to the America’s. Two years later the beverage then made its way to English shores.
  4. 4. Types of Tea There are many types of tea that have originated over the years. Many of which have been around for thousands of years. WHITE YELLOW GREEN OOLONG BLACK Some that are well known in Chinese culture are:
  5. 5. WHITE White tea is a tea made with buds, and, in some cases, young leaves which are sun dried or dried by steaming. Like green tea, white tea is not oxidized.
  6. 6. YELLOW Yellow tea usually implies a special tea processed similarly to green tea, but with a slower drying phase, where the damp tea leaves are allowed to sit and yellow. The smell is sometimes misguided for black if the tea is cured with other herbs, but similarities in taste can still be drawn between yellow, green and white teas.
  7. 7. GREEN Green tea is tea made solely with the leaves of Camellia sinensis that have undergone minimal oxidation during processing. Green tea originates from China and has become associated with many cultures in Asia from Japan and South Korea to the Middle East. Recently, it has become more widespread in the West, where black tea is traditionally consumed. This is due to its antioxidants and people becoming to have healthier life styles.
  8. 8. OOLONG Oolong is a traditional Chinese tea somewhere between green and black in oxidation. It ranges from 10% to 70% oxidation. It is one of the most popular types of teas served in typical Chinese restaurants.
  9. 9. BLACK Black is a variety of tea that is more oxidised. Black tea is normally of a stronger taste and also a higher caffeine level.
  10. 10. BRITISH TEA Black tea was the main tea that was brought into the British Isle. We developed the taste for tea in more of the upper class of Britain, it was a very highly thought after of drink at the time. After the years the tea market began to be accepted into all of the British social classes, there became more flavours available and ways of making the beverage.
  11. 11. BRITISH TEA RITUAL  The kettle is boiled and water poured into a tea pot.  Water is swirled around the pot to warm it and then poured out.  Loose tea leaves nowadays often tea bags or the dust from a ripped-open tea bag are then added to the pot.  Water is added to the pot and allowed to brew for several minutes while a tea cosy is placed on the pot to keep the tea warm.  Milk may be added to the tea cup, the host asking the guest if milk is wanted, although milk may alternatively be added after the tea is poured  .A tea strainer, like a miniature sieve, is placed over the top of the cup and the tea poured in.  The straight black tea is then given to guests and they are allowed to add milk and sugar to their taste  .The pot will normally hold enough tea so as not to be empty after filling the cups of all the guests. If this is the case, the tea cosy is replaced after everyone has been served.
  12. 12. TEA BRIEF The research that I have put into this brief myself consists of: Different ways of making tea. People who make the tea. How much tea is drank in my house. - per day - per week Where the tea is made.
  13. 13. Different Ways of Making Tea In my house the tea is made in three ways depending who it is drinking the tea and what occasion it is. 1. By the normal water in kettle, let boil and pour into cup with tea bag. 2. Make a brew with a tea put, only on special occasions – Christmas and New Years Day. 3. And last the way my dad makes tea, put cold water and a tea bag in a cup and stick it in the microwave.
  14. 14. People Who Make Tea In my house tea is normally made just by the person wanting it. The only reasons would be that somebody has just came in from work or there are visitors in the house. The majority of the time my mum would make the tea for visitors, because she likes to be a host, but if her friends would be over mainly my younger brother would make it.
