The History of Tea

Five thousand years ago, China's legendary Emperor Shen Nung discovered tea. People outside the Far East enjoyed tea for the first time less than 500 years ago. Tea has played an important role in world history ever since. Today the world drinks more tea than any other beverage except water. Tea both calms and stimulates, warms and cools and above all tastes delicious.

How to Brew Tea

While the verbiage may change, the traditional way of brewing tea should not. The steps are as follows:

* Warm the pot to remove any chill.
* Add one teaspoon full of tea per person plus one for the pot.
* Add water that has just come to a boil
* Let the tea steep for a good five minutes... Pour and enjoy!
