Les Blank director of 'All in This Tea' has passed away

Les Blank has sadly passed away. He directed the documentary film 'All in This Tea' that profiled David Lee Hoffman traveling through remote tea growing areas of China. A film worth seeing.

Very sad news :( I love that documentary, it's a great watch as a tea journey starting point as well as for the experienced!

I also really enjoyed the documentary. My favorite part was probably the discussion/arguments Hoffman had with the Chinese bureaucrats. Sorry to hear about Les Blank's passing. Just another reason why one should try to value every day of their life.
