Origins Of Tea
According to Chinese legend, tea was discovered thousands of years ago when the emperor Shen Nong was boiling water in the shade of a tea tree. When a few leaves blew into the water and settled there, the emperor discovered a delightful brew which was considered sacred and was consumed by the nobility. Today tea is drunk throughout the world and is a celebration of a beverage with a 5000 year history.
