Tea is one of the most consumed beverages in the world and with its variety of types and flavours, it is not only popular in winter.
Various legends from India and China tell of the discovery of tea. Hence the Chinese emperor Shen Nung is said to have accidentally discovered the pleasant taste of the tee tree leaves in 2737 B.C. when he was boiling water underneath. However, it is only proven that tea was described as “Tu” for the first time in a dictionary in 350 B.C. Over the centuries, tea made its way through Japan and India, arriving in Holland in the 17th century and, eventually reached England and Russia before it began its triumphal march all over Europe.
