The History of Tea

March 15, 2019

Often thought to be British in origin, tea actually had its' birth in China. As the legend goes, in 2737 BC, the Chinese emperor Shen Nung was sitting under a tree while his servant boiled some drinking water. Some of the leaves from a tree, Camelia Sinensis, blew into the water. Shen Nung was actually an herbalist, and tried the infusion that had been accidentally created. This drink is what we call Tea today. It wasn't long until tea was first introduced into Japan by Japanese Buddhist monks who had travelled to China to study. Read the Rest of the Story Here.
