5.Chinese tea

According to popular legend, tea was discovered by Chinese Emperor Shennong in 2737 BCE when a leaf from a Camellia sinensis tree fell into water the emperor was boiling.

Chinese tea can be classified into five distinctive categories, white, green, oolong, black/red and post-fermented. Others add categories for red, scented and compressed teas. All of these come from varieties of the Camellia sinensis plant. Green tea is the most popular type of tea consumed in China.

The Ten Great Chinese Teas are Dragon Well, Dongding Green Spiral, Anxi Iron Goddess, Yellow mountain Tip, Wuyi Rock Tea (Red Robe), Jun Mountain Silver Needle, Keemun Black Tea, Liuan Leaf, Yunnan Puer and White Tip Silver Needle.
