The Tea Explorer

To say that Jeff Fuchs is passionate about tea is an understatement. This mountain guide adventurer is a tea aficionado, an expert (he lectures on tea at universities) and self-described “tea addict.” His lifelong search for the perfect cup sends him on a journey following the Ancient Tea Horse Road. In the film The Tea Explorer we’ll follow him as he treks through the wilds of Southwest China, over the peaks of the Himalayas, down to the markets of Darjeeling in India and uncovers how tea went from a rare regional treasure to the most popular beverage on earth.
