Camila Senensis- I know I didn’t spell it right.

bah it was Camellia sinensis according to wiki bah on spelling

Ahhhhh….I can tell my refresh isn’t going to be fast enough…

Hit “F5” ? click like playing a online game (wow, etc)

The anticipation of having to constanly press refresh waiting for the next ? may give me a heart attack. I was actually starting to hold my breath lol

AmazonV with her quick fingers, pulled out the first one. Remember, the questions will get harder as we go.

Here comes the next question…

Don’t worry about your spelling too much, as long as I know what you meant, you will get the point.

Question 2:

This Chinese ruler was said to have discovered tea 5000 years ago, when a leaf from a tree fell from the sky and landed in a pot of water which was boiling, what was his name?

Chinese emperor and inventor Shennong

Shennong???

CRAP….stupid refresh

My internet is pretty slow tonight

Right, in 2737, Shen Nung was said to have discovered it. That was good for 5 more tea samples. Is everyone else having trouble getting the questions in time?

hints and tips – make sure your subscribed to the topic updates, and have your email open

Nah…just my slow internet…lol…
