The discovery of tea was something of an accident. According to legend, in 2737 BC the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung was boiling water over an open fire when a few leaves from a Cmellia Sinensis plant fell into the pot of hot water. The emperor drank the mixture and found it gave him vigor of body, contentment of mind, and determination of purpose. Thus the belief of the tea’s mysterious healing powers was established. This is how tea first became popularized as a healthy soothing beverage for all occasions and still is. The first book on tea(Ch’a Ching) was written centuries later, in 780 AD by Chinese poet Lu Yu. It included a description of the cultivation, preparation and intake of tea.


By the 8th century, commercial cultivation of tea had spread through China and into Japan where it was considered to be a luxury only to be enjoyed by Japan’s nobility and holy men. Its popularity spread to the common folk when word of its health benefits became known.
