Posted November 13, 2018 01:13:00 South Australia has been known for its white tea for more than two centuries.
But the South Australian government’s decision to allow tea to be sold in the state has caused a stir.
One of the first known advertisements for white tea was in 1858, with a newspaper advertisement asking for the drink’s “purest, whitest, most delicious” tea.
A couple of decades later, the beverage’s name was changed to “white tea”, and the beverage has been available in South Australians since then.
“White tea has been around for over 2,000 years, it’s not just a new product,” Dr Alister Gee, chief executive of the South Australia Tea Council, told ABC Radio Adelaide.
The drink’s history and marketing is complicated.
It started with a man named William Scott, who was a surgeon who had spent much of his career treating patients suffering from tuberculosis and malaria.
After his death, his descendants sold his estate to a family of tea farmers, and they started a plantation on the banks of the Gold Coast.
From there, tea grew on the farm, and by the 1870s, the tea was a major part of the local diet.
Tea was a staple in the homes of South Australians, but the commercialisation of the beverage wasn’t until 1920, when the United States introduced the tea bag.
By then, white tea had been used for thousands of years in Europe and Asia, but it wasn’t widely consumed until the 1960s.
In that decade, the drink became a staple of the West Australian diet.
The state was one of the last states in Australia to adopt a tea ban, but after the ban, South Australians continued to drink white tea.
It became a favourite with tourists.
When the ban was lifted, tea became a major tourist draw, with tea drinkers coming from around the world to visit the state.
While it’s been a popular drink in South Australian culture for years, the South Adelaide Tea Council says it has recently grown tired of the “unfortunate” ban.
Dr Gee said the council’s main concern was the impact it would have on the health of the tea industry.
She said while the ban had allowed South Australians to continue drinking white tea, it had also created a “cultural divide” in South Adelaide.
“It’s been an opportunity for people to try to be more culturally diverse,” she said.
What is white tea?
White tea is a tea with a high concentration of caffeine and has a sweet and nutty flavour.
Its a drink popular with tourists, who enjoy its light, crisp taste.
White teas can be made from a wide variety of tea varieties, but most are made from teas grown in the Western Australian or Australian tea growing regions.
Caffeine levels vary between varieties, so you need to be careful when choosing a tea.
There is no single answer to whether or not your drink is safe.
