Legend has it that Shen Nung, the second emperor of China, discovered tea in 2737 BC when tea leaves accidentally blew into his cup of hot water. It was the marriage of King Charles II to Princess Catherine of Braganza that instigated the importation of tea into Britain. Tea has now become synonymous with traditional British etiquette. Join us for a civilized journey through the history of tea and enjoy the dunking dozen and an exploration of the best teas to drink. (hb)
