There is a popular Chinese fable stating that Shennong (or sometimes known as the Yan Emperor) discovered a tea tree and spread the habit of tea drinking in China, and later, to other parts of the world. Well, tea is not only a kind of beverages, we can also use it to cook different kinds of delicious tea food. Like for example, Longjing Shrimp, which is one of the famous tea cuisine.
