Good manners ...
And take your time at the moment
A Chinese legend tells that the Chinese emperor Shen Nong, the father of Chinese medicine, ordered his subjects to drink only boiled water to avoid all diseases.
One afternoon in the shade of a tree under which the emperor was resting, a leaf broke off from the tree and got into the cup of boiling water. This is how tea was born around 2730 BC.
For thousands of years, man has been drinking tea. Over time, it has spread across the globe and today, after water, it is the most consumed beverage in the world with 25,000 cups of tea consumed every second.
Our expert invites you to take time… for tea. Take the time between friends to stop in your overloaded daily life to taste life.
Tea offers you its tempo: that of its infusion, that of its history through the legends of this mysterious tree.
