About the Film
9 DRAGONS TEA documents the untold story of tea’s epic journey, from her ancient Chinese origins to the accidental creation of Lapsang Souchong Black Tea in Wuyi Shan—home of the world’s most prized tea—Da Hong Pao. The unquenchable thirst for Chinese tea led to the Boston Tea Party, igniting the American War of Independence. In the mid 19th century, the envy of its riches drove the British to steal China’s tea secrets and culminated in a fascinating tale of industrial espionage.
