We love a good cup of tea, and with the thousands of articles talking about its health benefits, what’s not to love? But with more than 3000 varieties of tea, how do you choose what’s right for you? According to legend, the story of tea began in China in 2737 BC. The Chinese herb Master Shen Nong (“Divine Farmer”) was sitting beneath a tree boiling water for drinking when some leaves from the tree blew into the water. Shen Nong decided to try the accidentally created infusion, and a grand tradition was born. The tree was Camellia sinensis, from which we gather our tea leaves for the tea we drink today.
