IMPERIAL TEA is inspired by the Chinese tale of "The Big Red Toga Tea", the story of a persevering son searching for a cure to save his mother, who was part of the emperor's concubine. During his quest, he had to face many obstacles. Along the journey, he discovered a tree that was slightly hidden and nestled into the cliff. He noticed that water flowed from this tree and, intuitively seeing it as a sign, he decided to bring a few leaves back to his mother. She immediately made tea out of the leaves and, after drinking it, was miraculously healed in few days. This tea soon became known as "The Big Red Toga Tea" as a reminder of the red coat worn the loving son who found the leaves. As the tea gained notoriety, it was later renamed "Imperial Tea" by the Emperor and reserved specially for the palace.
