Little Tea Leaves first grew in the wild until they were discovered accidentally by humans. They added flavour to plain boiling water! Since then, they have travelled the world, becoming a hot favourite of kings and commoners. Different varieties are grown on all five continents. The history of Tea is also very eventful, where even wars are foughts over these wonderful little leaves.
