History of Tea

The story of tea goes back as far as around 2737BC, during the reign of the Chinese Emperor Shun Nung, known as the 'Divine Healer'.  Shun Nung always drank boiled water for reasons of good health.  Legend would have it that one day some leaves were blown from a nearby tree into his bowl of water. Noting the delightful aroma, the emperor tasted the beverage and declared it 'Heaven sent'.
