I always start my day with a cup of tea. Monday morning is no exception. Tea helps my creativity, gets my focus and mood up and running after the sloth of the weekend. 

So as I sip my second cup of the morning, (a nod to my British roots), I got to thinking about the roots of tea and its role as a quintessentially British drink. The history of tea states that the lovely brew started as far back as 2737 BC when the Chinese emperot Shen Nung sat under a tree whilst his servant bolied up a hot cup of boiled water. Accordingly, Nung being a herbalist mixed up some leaves that had fallen into the cup…. thereby making the first brew.

Have a very creative week fellow bloggers 😊
