Tea History

Shen Nong
The story of tea began in ancient China. It was said that in 2737 BC, the Chinese emperor Shen Nong was sitting beneath a tree while his servant boiled drinking water for him, when dried leaves from the tree blew into the water. A brown liquid was infused into the water. Shen Nong, was curious about the new liquid, decided to try the infusion that his servant had accidentally created. Shen Nong found the liquid very refreshing. Thus as a herbalist he began his fascinating search to identify and classify tea variety and quality. And so, Cha was discovered in China. Cha is a Chinese word for tea. From his discovery tea as is known worldwide now has become part of the lifestyle of many nations. It has become a general beverage in every corner or the world today.
