The Meaning of Tea - Director Scott Chamberlin Hoyt traveled through India, Japan, Taiwan, Morocco, England, France, Ireland, and even Tea, South Dakota, unveiling tea's mysterious appeal. The film considers the question of whether there is any inherent "meaning" to be found in tea, particularly in an amped-up, high-tech era increasingly dominated by mass-marketing and fast food. The DVD offers Special Features including an interview with director on the making of the film. Experience the Japanese Tea Ceremony; enjoy additional interviews with 'tea people'; meet the Tea Contrarian'; and see an alternate opening and ending to the film. By visiting places where tea is still revered and by investigating its role in these societies, the film suggests the profoundly positive role tea may play in the renewal of our world. 74 minutes with 45 minutes of Special Features.
