What does SKEISAN stand for?
Once in ancient China, the emperor camped under a tree and boiled water on a kettle on the fire. When a light wind blew some leaves of the tree into the hot water, the emperor noticed how it turned a light green colour and smelled pleasantly. He tasted a cup - the first Tea Experience: he was thrilled by the refreshing and invigorating effect of this drink from the wild tea tree, which the emperor had thus discovered.
The emperor's name was Shen Nung. This means: Son of the sky.
Son and sky. Sky and son. Skyson.
