The story of tea began in ancient China. One legend has it that, around 5000 years ago, an emperor called Shen Nung ruled the land and was an accomplished sovereign and a gifted scientist, herbalist and a patron of the arts. One of his proclamations was that all drinking water had to be boiled for hygienic reasons.
The story goes that the emperor was visiting his citizens in a distant realm and had stopped to rest. His servants began to boil water for the emperor and his court to drink when dried leaves from a nearby bush fell into the boiling water. The leaves caused the liquid to turn brown and this caught the Emperor's scientific interest, he drank the liquid and found it refreshing. The bush from which the leaves had fallen was Camellia Sinensis and the drink was what we now know as tea.
Tea grew in popularity during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) and by the Tang Dynasty (618-906 AD) tea was the national drink of China.
During the late 8th century Japanese Buddhist monks, who had travelled to China to pursue their studies, introduced tea to Japan.
In China, tea lost popularity during the Mongol Yuan Dynasty (1280-1368), when the Mongol rulers thought tea drinking to be decadent. It returned to favour under the Chinese Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) who revived Chinese traditions, tea being one of them.
Great tea, supplied and delivered promptly and at a good price. I recommend this supplier without hesitation.
