Have you ever wondered what at a tea garden really is? After researching the facts, this is what we found out abot tea gardens at Two Leaves and a Bud:
A Japanese tea Garden in San Francisco
A tea garden was a place to drink tea and stroll around lawns, ponds and view statues. These smaller versions of pleasure gardens flourished in the late 18th century. Examples were Cuper's Gardens and the area that became the Caledonian Cattle Market in London, England.
Tea gardens also flourished in Japan and examples of Japanese tea gardens can be found around the world.
Tea garden also refers to a tea plantation area where tea bushes are cultivated. These are found in Turkey(Karadeniz), India (from where our Organic Assam Black tea comes from), Bangladesh (Sylhet) and Sri Lanka (where our Earl Grey Tea originates from).
