Leaf Garden – Teas, Infusions and Herbal Teas
The origins of Tea are lost in the mists of time. Ancient legends tell it was the emperor Shen Nung, in 2.700 BC, who discovered tea by noticing how tea leaves, accidentally fallen into hot water, gave off a pleasant aroma; when tasting it, the infusion turned out to be very good.
Tea was introduced in Japan by Buddhist monks around 1200 AC; having tea became a true cult as well as an important ritual of union and hospitality. Known to the Arabs since the 9th century, tea spread across Europe during the 17th century, thanks to Portuguese and Dutch merchants, while it was also succeeding in Russia.
In England tea arrived later, but it is welcomed with enthusiasm, so much that since the 18th century Britain has become the home of the most important tea drinkers in the whole West.
