There are many myths and legends surrounding the discovery of tea. One account dates back to 2737 B.C., where Chinese Emperor Shen Nung happened upon tea when leaves from a bush dropped into his boiling water. Japan has its own legend, where it is said the founder of Japanese Buddhism, Indian Saint Bodhidharma, discovered tea on a trip to China in 520 A.D.
No matter how it was discovered, tea has grown to be one of the most popular drinks in the world. Tea's popularity spans countries, cultures, age, and religions. From the Far East to Europe and the Americas, tea has infused itself into everyday life.
