Tea (茶) was discovered in China 4,700 years ago and has since spread to the rest of the world. China still remains the country of tea and tea is the most popular drink in Chinese daily life. Drinking tea is also a way of life in China. The best way to experience the Chinese tea culture is at one of the many tea houses throughout the country. In China, a tea house (茶館, "cháguăn" or 茶屋, "cháwū") is traditionally quite similar to the American "cafe", albeit centered around tea rather than coffee. People gather at tea houses to chat, socialize, and enjoy tea. Young people often meet at tea houses for dates. These tea houses not only serve tea, but also traditional snack food.
