Grinded Tea (Chinese: 擂茶) is a special sort of Hakka drinking, which is very traditional among Hakkas in Mainland China. It is not the same as Chinese tea because there are always other ingradients such rice, soybeans, sesame seeds, peanut, ginger and salt added and all these are grinded in a large earthenware basin with a wooden stick. Sometimes there may be some Chinese herbal medicine included for purpose of health. The tea smells nice and appetizing. Drinking grinded tea is a Hakkas custom and it began since as early as Three Kingdoms period in Chinese history.
