Tea Appreciation film free online

January 12, 2009

I found this in my Internet travels a few weeks back and have watched it a couple times since so I figured I’d share: http://www.babelgum.com/html/clip.php?clipId=114277

The website requires you to download a little client but it is fast and free and safe.

I’m a sucker for any “How It’s Made” type shows, factory tours, or anything similar. I just really like to see how things come to be and knowing what goes into a product often gives you a new appreciation and respect for the history, people, time, and effort that goes on behind the scenes of even seemingly mundane things. This film is broken up into “chapters” and each offers insight to a particular aspect of tea from production to appreciation and a lot in between. It times in at about 50 minutes and easily worth your time. Enjoy!
