He was about lo fish them out when they gave a fra- grance that invited him to drink Ihe world's first cup of tea, The earliest documented mention of tea was made in China in 350 A.D., 13 centuries before the West knew in the words of Dr. Nicholas Brady, chaplain lo (he court of William and Mary "the sovereign drink pleasure and of health."
