It is impossible to know whether there is any truth in this story.

It became such a favourite that during the late eighth century a writer called Lu Yu wrote the first book entirely about tea, the Ch'a Ching, or Tea Classic.

It was shortly after this that tea was first introduced to Japan, by Japanese Buddhist monks who had travelled to China to study.

Britain, always a little suspicious of continental trends, had yet to become the nation of tea drinkers that it is today.

Since 1600, the British East India Company had a monopoly on importing goods from outside Europe, and it is likely that sailors on these ships brought tea home as gifts.
