Why Is Tea So Fascinating?

A Cup Steeped In Human Stories

A Film by Christy Hui

How do you begin your day?
Chances are you’ll start with a cup of tea, just like billions of others do around the globe.

Why? Because tea is the world’s most popular drink, second only to water.

Ever wonder when tea was invented? Who discovered tea? How is tea made? How did tea spread from China to Japan, England, America, India and so on? This cup influenced politics, culture and tastes all over. Tea is indeed a very deep subject.

In short, tea changed the world.

Watch the trailer of 9 DRAGONS TEA. Originated in China, tea brews an epic adventure of art, culture and history.
