The origin of tea dates back to centuries ago. Legend has it that tea drinking can be traced back to the reign of Chinese Emperor Chen Nung in 2737 BC. He was supposedly a scholar and herbalist, who discovered this delectable drink when he was sitting beneath a tree while his servant was boiling a pot of water. A few leaves from a tea plant (Camellia Sinensis) dropped into the pot of water. The eventual mix gave an excellent aroma, which he found to have a wonderful taste, when sipped.

Tea lovers fondly look to tea as the second most consumed beverage in the world, after water. Therefore, good quality tea is quite important to humanity. It is essential for the taste and aroma to be smooth when caressed with the tongue and soothing to the body. One of the most popular tea consumed around the world is the black tea variety. The most incredible property about black tea, is its relaxing nature. The quality of tea is therefore a very important consideration, when choosing the right tea. To some, the consumption of tea begins from the minute they wake up, while for most others, tea is served at all times regardless of the occasion.
