The History of Tea

Tea is a world famous drink for more than 5 000 years.

Shen Nung

The legend says, it was discovered by the Chinese eemperor Shen Nung. He was famous for his order to boil all the drinking water for cleansing.

One day Shen Nung was on a road trip. When he stopped for a rest, his servants started to boil water for drinking. But when the water was boiling, some dried leaves from the bush fell into it. The water became brown and had a nice smell. The emperor tried this drink and after that the world got the first tea lover.

In the 16th century tea became popular in Europe.

In 1662 King Charles II married a Spanish princess who was a tea drinker, since that time the Great Britain is known as a Tea Empire.
