Fancy a pot of tea? Whether you prefer rich black teas or soothing chamomile blends, drinking tea is a daily ritual for many people around the world.

Legend has it that Emperor Shen Nong accidentally discovered the drink when a wild tea tree leaf drifted into his pot while he was boiling water in the garden. He was pleasantly surprised by the infused water’s taste and began researching the plant further. He discovered tea's medicinal properties, and the ritual of drinking tea soon became an important part of Eastern culture. Traders and explorers brought tea to the West, where the wealthy would partake in tea ceremonies for special occasions. However, today, drinking tea is for everyone, and most households have some sort of variety and flavors in their kitchen cupboards.
