All In This Tea

A Les Blank (and collaborators) documentary about tea, telling its story by following around a Californian boutique tea importer (mainly as he searches the Chinese hinterlands for the best teas).

The history and facts about tea were interesting, although that wasn't really a focus of the documentary.

The guy they were following was an absolutely fascinating character, and the film ended up being about him as much as tea.
