The history of tea began about 5.000 years ago. According to legend told in India, Prince Dharma reached out to bring the Buddhist faith to China.
Therefore, he made a promise to waive sleep for nine years. But when, after three long years, sleep threatened to overcome him, he ate – lost in thought – a few leaves of an unknown bush. Instantly, all tiredness vanished, the prince was awake again and at full power, and felt able to fulfill his vow with the help of this newly discovered plant.
