About Chinese Tea
China is the home of Tea. According to legend, it dates back to 2737 BCE when an ancient Emperor named Shennong (神農 or Sheng Nung) discovered it by pure accident! The story goes that after spending his day experimenting with herbs, Shennong decided to rest under an unknown tree. He eventually fell asleep in the midday sun with a cup of boiling water by his side.
While the Emperor dozed, a gust of wind came through the tree. Leaves fell to the ground, with some landing in Shennong’s drink. The leaves then began to infuse with the water. And so, when Shennong awoke, he discovered a strange, greenish beverage next to him.
Intrigued, he decided to try it. The Emperor was delighted by the scent and delicious taste. It was, of course, Green Tea.
China Black Tea, however, didn’t come into existence until the Chinese Qing Dynasty (1644-1912 CE), a time of great upheaval for the country. Again according to legend, the first Black Tea was a smoked variety known as Lapsang Souchong - again the product of an accident. Almond and Cinnamon Black Tea is newer still, but that, of course, doesn’t impact its allure!

Benefits of Almond and Cinnamon Tea
Almond and Cinnamon Black Tea, like all Black Tea Types, contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and other antioxidants.
Due to its processing, the most common antioxidants are theaflavin and thearubigins, both of which can combat free radicals in the body.
This, in turn, slows down the process of oxidation, ultimately reducing the risk of developing several chronic conditions. Pretty neat for your morning cuppa, wouldn’t you agree?
