Few people know the fascinating history of tea growing and making. This intriguing documentary aims to change that by following renowned tea importer David Lee Ho man as he scours the far- flung corners of China to fi nd the richest teas on earth. Tea making is an art and tradition that goes back generations in the East, and Ho man makes it his goal to bring to the rest of the world the exquisite teas produced by struggling small farmers. This film will be accompanied by a tea tasting featuring Chinese teas and dessert after the screening.
