Legend has it that over 4,700 years ago, the Chinese Emperor Shen Nung was standing in his garden with a drinking bowl of hot water as the wind swirled up the leaves of a wild, growing tea bush. Three of these leaves fell into his drinking bowl and the Emperor sensed a pleasing fragrance. Sipping the water, he soon felt refreshed and focused. Green tea had been discovered and that is how it was given the name of "flying bird"
