The Origin of Tea
The Chinese legend claims that Emperor Shien Non Shei discovered tea in 2737 BC. One version of the legend is that a tea leaf drifted into a pot of water Shien Non Shei was drinking. He proceeded to drink the water and was surprised that it had become tea and hence, tea was founded

Another version of the legend is that while the Emperor was mountain climbing he became thirty and a tea leaf drifted towards his feet. He picked up the leaf, twisted it in his fingers, and thought the bitter taste could hold healthy properties that would satisfy his thirst when brewed into a drink

A Short History
(350 to 600) The demand for tea developed and eventually stripped the supply of wild tea trees. Farmers began to grow tea plants and the cultivation of tea spread throughout China

(618-907) During the Tang Dynasty more tea plants were discovered and the tradition spread to Japan. Zen Buddhist in Japan developed the Japanese Tea Ceremony to stay awake for meditation but slowly became a part of the nation’s culture

(780 ) Lu Yu wrote
Ch’a Ching
Tea Classic
), a tea production manual that popularized tea as a part of Chinese culture

(1606) Tea was introduced to Europe by Queen Elizabeth who established the Dutch East India Company, which began exporting tea from China

(1773) The famous Boston Tea Party occurred, where American colonists protested the taxation of tea by the Dutch East India Company because the population desired it, proving it’s global influence and importance

The Buddhist legend claims that Siddhartha Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, was eager to prove his faith by traveling to China without sleep. He failed and slept after a few days of travel. When he woke he cursed his eyelids, removed them, and threw them to the ground. From his buried eyelids a tea bush immediately grew. He collected the leaves of the bush and was given the energy he needed to continue his journey
