“Tea is the elixir of life.” – Lao Tzu
Second only to water, tea is the most consumed beverage throughout the world. Chinese legend states that in 2737 B.C., the Chinese Emporer Shen-Nung “accidentally” discovered the leaves of a wild tea bush that had blown into a pot of boiling water, a common method of purification even then. Pleased by the rich amber coloring and the pleasant aroma, he sipped the warm liquid and found the steeped leaves to be deeply refreshing. Since then, the taking of tea has become ceremonial and teas, found to be rich in medicinal properties, have been enjoyed the world over.
