The Imperial concubine Lady Yang Kuei Fei was said to be rather fond of lychees – so much so that the Emperor Hsuan Tsung had fresh lychees brought 600 miles from Canton to his northern palace, just to woo her favour.

Origin: China

The origins of tea lie in China: legend has it that it was discovered when a few leaves fell into the mythical emperor Shennong's cup of hot water. Today China produces thousands of different varieties ranging from black and green tea to more unusual teas, like puerh or yellow tea.

What’s the story behind this year’s celebration?

The Chinese zodiac cycle repeats every 12 years, with an animal assigned to each year. The 12 zodiac signs are in order, the second of which is the Ox. Legend has it that the order was determined by the Jade Emperor who wanted to appoint 12 animals as palace guards.
