780

780BC marks the approximate date that Lu Yu wrote his famous Cha Jing, the world’s first book about the art of tea. Covering everything from origin and picking technique to the tea ceremony itself, it was also the first historical record of steaming tea. We thought we’d give our quintessential Sencha the number 780, to celebrate the original tome for teatime reading…

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.

Green Tea

Green tea's fresh, verdant taste is down to its processing: the leaves are heated shortly after picking, stopping the oxidation process that would eventually turn them into black tea. Some of the best green teas are found in Japan and China, where the techniques of firing or steaming the leaves have been perfected over many centuries. Find out more about green tea here.
