After water, tea is the most consumed drink in the world. Tea is romance, history, a divine herb, and a business. Tea embodies the spirituality of life. And the fiscal prosperity life requires.
There is so much more to tea than just your daily cuppa. Find out what this delightful beverage has come to mean to us over the centuries in the The Meaning of Tea. The fabulous life of tea is portrayed beautifully, giving us insight into how we humans relate to the divine herb. If you are in the Toronto area The Tea Emporium is currently in the midst of arranging a screening of this inspiring portrayal of a beverage many take for granted.
All the photos here are by friend, author of The Ancient Tea Horse Road and photographer, Jeff Fuchs. Fuchs currently lives in Shangrila where (among other adventures) he is documenting the lives of nomads living within the tea regions of China's southern Yunnan province. These are just a taste!
