Drinking tea has a long history and it started in China. Shen Nung; the emperor (Chinese: 神农), whose name means the Divine Farmer, is the one who discovered tea.
According to myth and legend, one day Shen had a rest under a Camellia tree and boiled some water to drink. A few leaves from the tree above drifted down into the pot of boiling water and infused with the water and created the first pot of tea. Shen tried the tea and found it very tasty and refreshing.
Since his discovery, tea has been grown in many countries and is getting so popular all around the world!
