Green Tea News

Green Tea is, according to legend, where it all began. The story goes that an ancient Chinese Emperor named Shennong discovered tea some 5,000 years ago. This came about due to him resting underneath an unknown tree with a cup of boiling water to hand. When he awoke, Shennong found that leaves from the branches above had dropped into his drink. An avid herbalist, he decided to try the infusion. To his surprise, he loved it!   While this is likely but an age-old tale, it has since inspired millions around the world. It accounts for around 20% of global Tea consumption, with many today choosing Green Tea for its health benefits. If you’re interested in how this wonderful beverage could improve your everyday way of life, then read our blogs below.
