Once the China's Emperor discovered tea, over years, it spread throughout the world and China had monopoly over it. Soon after, Britishers came to India and to break China’s monopoly, they introduced ”British Tea.” The rich climate and fertile soil was favourable for the growth of tea bushes and a produce of an exceptional quality was achieved.
Ancient India has been famous for herbs and medicines. Tea was also one of them but it was unknown to the land that it could became a drink. That is how tea came into India and became our favourite drink.
