Tea drinking was first discovered by the Chinese inventor and ruler Shen Nung in 2737 BC. According to legend, the emperor liked his drinking water boiled before he drank it to make sure it was clean. He took this so seriously that he made an edict requiring that all drinking water be boiled first as a hygiene measure.

One day, on a trip to a distant part of his realm, he and his army stopped to rest. A servant began boiling water for him to drink, and a dead leaf from a wild tea bush fell into the water. It turned a brownish color, but was unnoticed and presented to the Emperor anyway. As a scientist, the Emperor’s curiosity got the better of him and he drank some. Finding it to be very refreshing the emperor loved it and tea was born. The rest as they say, is history
