At the time of the Silk Road and the large caravans, travelers and merchants who traveled in Asia for trade often sought shelter in monasteries before continuing their journey. As thanks for their hospitality, the lodgers often gave spices or tea to the monks.
One day, a Tibetan monk mixed some green tea, some black tea, then added some jasmine flowers, vanilla and bergamot. From this mysterious alchemy so was born the tasty blend: the famous Monk’s tea.
The monk let the visitors taste his invention, and all were amazed by this excellent tea. The story goes that this blend was so refined and delicious that it could be exchanged for gold.
