China Chun Mee Tea
The so-called “Precious Eyebrow Tea” is one of the hundreds if not thousands if not millions of different Green Tea types. But where did it all begin? China, of course! And when? 2737 BCE, supposedly! According to legend, the Chinese Emperor of the time, Shennong, had come to rest under an unknown tree, napping in the midday sun with a glass of hot water by his side. When he awoke he found that leaves from the above tree had fallen into his drink and in his fascination, he decided to try the new infusion. The tree above had turned out to be a tea tree while the drink itself had turned out to be, well, delicious. And so a new beverage was born, or so the story goes.
