Tea originated from China. Soon enough it spread to other parts of the world and became a popular drink, having even herbalists discover other medicinal functions that came with the plant. With the high demand, Tea Plantations started coming up as well as need for labour. Which boosted Slave Trade and unfortunately doomed Millions of Africans to Slavery. But gone are the days this was the case, we are no longer slaves. Tea, alongside it's medicinal properties, has 'magically' created millions of jobs for Africans. This Beautiful Kenyan Tea Plantation photo represents Freedom for me. Freedom from certain diseases and Freedom to Africans, to live life as we choose.
