China is considered the birthplace of tea. Tea history in China is so rich and complex it can be difficult to separate fact from myth. The most popular founding myth is recounted from 2737 when Emperor Shen Nong, the “Divine Emperor,” put some water on to boil and fell asleep. Some leaves fell into the pot and when we awoke he tried the water and found it bitter tasting but realized the stimulating effect it had on him. Tea was not always prepared as we know it. Three dynasties represent the three ages of Chinese tea: the Tang dynasty (brick/powder/soup) from 618-907; the Song dynasty (leaves/beaten/whipped) from 960-1279 and; the Ming dynasty (brewed) from 1368-1644. The Qing dynasty, from 1644-1914, is responsible for the naming of prestigious teas known today. Today, China produces all six types of tea with many unique growing regions and terroirs.

As Chinese cultures have evolved so have different ways of cultivating and drinking tea. One thing, however, remains the same…tea is an essential part of everyday life.

Loose leaf tea is sold by the ounce. If you want more than one ounce, simply increase the number.
