View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This inspirational film by Scott Hoyt and featuring Norwood Pratt received rave reviews at the sold-out screening during the 2008 World Tea Expo in Las Vegas. Travel on a journey through India, Japan, Taiwan, Morocco, England, France, Ireland and the town of TEA, South Dakota. This beautiful film unveils tea's mysterious appeal and considers the question of whether any inherent meaning is to be found in tea, particularly in this amped-up, high-tech era dominated by fast food. The film reveals the profoundly positive role tea may play in the renewal of our world. An incredible insight into this ancient leaf and beverage. Beautifully photographed in the tea gardens of Darjeeling and Taiwan. Contains 30 minutes of extra material.
