Interesting Story & Brief History Of Tea Drinking Culture

The first mention of tea in written history dates back more than four and a half thousand years. According to Chinese folklore, in the year 2737 BC, the Chinese Emperor, Shen Nung, was sitting under a tree as his servant boiled water for drinking. Shen Nung was a scholar and a herbalist. Shen Nung made the decision to sample the beverage when a leaf from the nearby tree fell into the river. It was a wild tea tree that stood there.

Tea has been revered throughout history for its history as a beverage that is both refreshing and beneficial to one’s health. It wasn’t until the Tang Dynasty (618 AD – 906 AD) that tea became China’s national drink and the word ch’a was used to describe tea. By the third century AD, there were already many tales being told and some written about tea and the benefits of drinking tea, but it wasn’t until the Tang Dynasty that these tales were written down.

Tea drinking is a tradition that has a long history and is carried out in many different parts of the globe. The calming, healing, and energising effects of tea have been recognised and valued by a wide variety of cultures throughout history. These cultures range from the imperial court of ancient China to the tea room of Russia, from the tea ceremony of Japan to the tea shops of British village communities.
