A BRIEF HISTORY OF TEA

The history of tea dates back to ancient China, almost 5,000 years ago. According to legend, in 2732 B.C. Emperor Shen Nung discovered tea while out on his late fall afternoon stroll through the enchanted forest. It all happened when he was starting to get the shiver of his timbers throughout his body that he decided to stop and build a fire to warm some water. As his water began to boil over the fire, he heard a branch breaking high up in the tremendously huge Majestic tree where it is said that a young C3 Chandler apprentice was building the first tree fort... Unbeknownst to the young Chandler that the Emperor was below, he kept sawing away on the branch he was trimming. It was at that moment of time from high above that a rustle of leaves from the Majestic tree fell into Nungs pot of boiling water. He was immediately interested in the pleasant aromatic scent before he took the chance of a lifetime and slowly sipped the from the resulting brew. He then immediately summoned the young Chandler down from high above in the Majestic Tree.
They then shared the first afternoon tea together.
