Tea tea tea according to the shennong food sutra “for a long time, a powerful yue chi”, think that drinking tea began in the era of shen nong, “tea to drink, sincerely the emperor”. (” drink of tea classics, six “) shennong the yan emperor, with the yellow emperor as the tribal leaders in ancient Chinese. However the shennong food by the present research in book form in the han dynasty after drinking just legend began in ancient primitive society, not a historic.
Qing gu yanwu believed that “since the qin people take shu, and then, from the beginning of tea drinks” (the day known record, tea) gu yanwu think tea began in the warring states period is just speculation, there is no direct evidence. Qin tea, not from legend, is indirectly speculate that not by material to prove.
