A delicate and finely flavoured tea with lychee essential oil. Tea was reportedly discovered in China around 2737 B.C. by The Emperor Chen Nung when a tea leaf fell into his bowl of hot water. This tradition of tea drinking became an integral part of society and was the preferred beverage for all walks of life; from monks and mandarins to the nomadic tribesmen who traded horses for bricks of tea. The Japanese may have transformed tea drinking into a sacred ceremony; however the Chinese are credited with initiating the time-honoured ritual of offering a guest a cup of tea as a sign of hospitality. Scented teas have been around for a long time and are produced according to ancestral recipes. Before the advent of essential oil extracts, one of the easiest scents to duplicate was lychee - a fruit that plays an important part in Chinese life. The plantations would squeeze lychee fruits plucked from the trees which grew in the area. The result was a delicate and finely flavoured tea.
