茶的四重境界 4 Levels of Tea

English tea was smuggled from China Fujian (aka Hokkien) province WuYee mountain (武夷山).

The French Jesuit priests doing missionary there called it “Thé” (Fujian dialect pronunciation). English learnt from French but pronounced it wrongly to “Tea”.

Note: The Beijing Mandarin and Japanese both pronounce it as ‘Cha’.
