Can you imagine our life without tea? It’s impossible.

Hot tea is a wonderful beverage to warm you at winter. Cold tea is perfect for hot summer days. Not to mention it’s many health benefits.

The Emperor Shen Nong invented the tea by accident at around 2737 B.C. He believed that drinking boiled water is good for the health, so his servants always boiled his water. One day dried leaves from a nearby camellia bush fell into the boiling water, creating by accident the first tea ever.

The emperor declared that the tea is healthy and refreshing and thus planted the roots for the thriving tea industry.

Thank you Emperor Shen Nong , and thank you nature for providing the amazing plants and flowers for making tea.

What are you thankful about today?

Have a blossom day
