If the legend is to be believed, then Green Tea was first discovered by pure accident. According to ancient sources of an admittedly disputed nature, the divine taste of Green Tea was first enjoyed by Shennong, an Emperor of China in 2737 BCE. The tale of the first sip begins with Shennong falling asleep under a tea tree with a hot glass of water by his side.
When he awoke, he found that leaves from the then-unknown tree above had fallen into his drink. Intrigued, Shennong tried the infusion and to his surprise, it tasted absolutely delicious. Whether there is any truth to this story is a topic of great debate; nevertheless, it has prevailed for thousands of years and has since given way to countless teas including, of course, Papaya Guava and Mango Tea.
But when were teas like this one first created? The scenting of tea is far from a new invention. It dates back almost as far as the actual discovery of tea. Then there is Earl Grey, a scented Black Tea known not for its age but for its significance in the world of tea. It has inspired the creation of a multitude of blends, our Papaya Guava and Mango Green Tea being just one of (probably) thousands if not millions. But if we were forced to pick a favourite, this particular beverage would be very high up on the list. Try Papaya Guava and Mango Green Tea today and see if it ranks high on your list, too. Could it even be an absolute #1 favourite? We’ll let you be the judge.
