Some believe it was seen as a medicine rather than a drink.(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Editor:Yao Xinyu,Bianji)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var shortname=window.location.host;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if (shortname==en.people.cn){disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9003988;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingCollection of treasures unearthed from Western Han tombAncient tombs dating back to 3,000 years ago found in downtown Zhengzhou Gold plates newly unearthed from “Haihunhou” tomb20 gold boards found in ancient Chinese tombWe RecommendCharming female soldiers on Xisha Islands
