Story of Tea

Once upon a time........

There lived an emperor named Shen Nung in China over 5000 years ago. He was a skilled ruler, creative scientist and a patron of the Arts who made it a rule to boil water before consumption as a hygienic precaution.

One day while a pot of water was kept to boil, he made an amazing discovery by a fluke. A few dried out leaves which fell into the simmering water changed its colour and out of curiosity the emperor tasted the new concoction to realize it was truly refreshing.
