"Let food be your medicine" - Hippocrates
Tea prepared leaves of a shrub, or small tree (Camellia Sinensis or Thea Chinensis).
Any herbal infusion made of the dried leaves of plants; green tea, black tea, herbal tea.
Most people know what tea is, but few know of its unique history. Like natural medicine and herbal remedies, tea is brought to us by the ancient world.
During that time, tea was used for natural cures as well as a savory drink.
According to written history, tea was discovered five thousand years ago in China by the Emperor Shen Nong.
The Emperor insisted that water always be boiled before drinking it. One day while this was being done some dried leaves fell into the boiling water and tea as we know it was born.
