Where did tea come from

Posted by Administrator on 11/14/2013 to Fine Ceylon Tea
Tea a beverage derived from cured leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinensis. Today tea is the most widely consumed beverages used in the world next to water.

Tea has a history that spread across multiple cultures for over thousands of years. Legend has it that tea was discovered by the Chinese Emperor, Shan Nong, in 2737 B.C. On one of his long travels, while resting under the shade of a wild tea tree a few tea leaves fell by chance into water which was being boiled for drinking. This then gave off a rich alluring aroma. The glorious aroma attracted his attention, upon drinking this brew; he discovered it to be refreshing and energizing, and this delectable drink was firmly launched in Courts of Cathay. Thus the custom of brewing fresh tea leaves in hot water began and it quickly spread.
