We are excited to pair up with Cedar House Sport Chalet to show a critically acclaimed documentary about tea on Thursday, February 9th. We will be opening the evening with a presentation on Tahoe Teas! This documentary follows David Lee Hoffman while he travels through China to find the best teas. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about our own tea and view an informative documentary on fine Chinese tea.
Flower Films presents "All In This Tea," a feature documentary by directors Les Blank and Gina Leibrecht that follows the world-renowned American tea importer, David Lee Hoffman, to some of the most remote regions of China in search of the finest handmade teas in the world. Not since Robert Fortune clandestinely made his way through the tea growing districts of China in 1843 to steal plants and seeds for the British Empire has a westerner attempted to gain access to the hidden world of tea, where farmers have been making it for generations. As the Chinese open their doors to the global marketplace, Hoffman opens their eyes to their own ancient tradition that links them, and all of us, to the distant past, while introducing the West to one of China's finest cultural gems, the artistry and exquisite taste of fine, handmade tea.
Join us on Thursday, February 9th from 5:30-8:00 at Cedar House Sport Chalet in Truckee. Get Tickets here-
