So the story starts as we just mentioned in 2737 B.C with the mighty emperor of China, Shen Nung. It is said that he was out on a walk through the forest; he stopped for a rest under a tree and boiled some water.
When he was boiling his water a few leaves fell from the tree and landed in his water unbeknown to Shen Nung. Then when he poured his water into his drinking flask he witnessed an unusual flavour, a flavour that he had never come across before.
He liked the taste and after drinking it he felt energised, refreshed and happy. He immediately rushed back to his empire and told the world.
This is a myth and one of the many myths however, it is one of the most popular and we love to think it is true!
