    The first documented drinking of tea was recorded in China sometime around 350 A.D. under the Zhau Dynasty. So the very first usage of tea had to have occurred earlier than this, but it is believed to also be in China. According to a legend, the Chinese emperor Shennong first discovered it in 2737 B.C.E. He had a habit of boiling his water before drinking it and dead leaf fell into his boiled water one day and he enjoyed it very much—and thus tea, or cha, came into this world. Of course, tea has evolved greatly throughout the years and has since spread across the world.
