The earliest mention of tea in history dates back to over 5,000 years ago when the Chinese Emperor Shennong used it for medicinal purposes in 2,737 BC. Over the centuries, tea gradually became more common and today it is one of the most popular and sought after beverages in the world. When James Taylor first cultivated tea in Sri Lanka, little did he know that he would alter the course of Sri Lanka’s economy and agriculture forever!
