History of the origin of tea
The origin of tea is unknown. According to Lu Yu's "The Classic of Tea", "tea as a drink originated from Shennong." The saying that Chinese tea drinking originated from Shennong has also derived different views due to folklore. "Shen Nong Baicao Jing" has the saying that "Shen Nong tasted a hundred herbs, encountered seventy-two poisons every day, and solved them in full swing." This should be the beginning of the medicinal use of tea.
It is also said that Shennong was resting by boiling water under a tree. A breeze blew through the treetops, and a few emerald green tea leaves fell into the boiling water with the wind. After drinking, Shennong found that the tea became fragrant and sweet, and he felt refreshed after drinking. Refreshing and energetic. From then on, tea was often drunk by Chinese people.
Although ancient Chinese myths and legends cannot verify the exact origin of tea in China, scholars generally believe that tea was very popular in China as early as the third century BC.
However, in Chinese historical materials, there is no record about tea until the third century BC. At that time, there was no word for "tea", but it was recorded with "tea". However, people seem to regard tea as a herbal medicine or nourishment.
Later, people began to plant tea trees, and gradually developed methods of drying and processing tea leaves. Later, tea was presented as a tribute to the emperor, and inns, hotels, and restaurants began to serve and sell tea.
In the 4th and 5th centuries AD, tea also began to be used as a commodity for barter transactions with China's neighboring countries.

During this period, tea leaves were further processed into many different varieties such as green tea, black tea, turtle tea and dark tea. In addition, tea scholars and tea Taoists in the Song Dynasty conducted detailed research on the quality, color, aroma and taste of tea, and developed many different tea ceremonies in honor of this important beverage.
