I have a videotape of this film given by a friend. I liked it very much. But by the time I watched it, I didn't know many crazy tea loving westerners yet. Now knowing so many teachatters around, the film might not look that phenomenal
Worth seeing anyway. I like the part he was talking about finding some green tea with good flavor and mediocre appearance. That's actually a nice way to get good deals on tea
I also like the how he is devoted in raising earthworms for organic fertilizer. It was amusing scene that he was talking about it enthusiastically to a few local officers and those people didn't seem to care about it at all. I really hope this earthworm thing could work in tea production.
And I don't know what other people think about the tea performance at the beginning of the film (and probably in the middle of the film as well, I don't remmeber). The tea performance in China is usually carried out by pretty girls. The performers are cute and elegant, but very often I just couldn't bear with seeing this kind of pretty girl tea performance - it makes me get goose bumps all over
