Gadana's tea trail.

by heavydoom » Oct 31st, '08, 17:49


A caravan of 120 horses makes an extraordinary seven month journey from Yunnan Province to Beijing, carrying tea across China.


this is being shows on the bbc world news channel.

use this thing here for your local tv times.

in toronto, this documentary is being repeated as follows :

Sun 11/2 12:30 AM
Tue 11/4 10:30 AM

this doc is more about the journey itself. a small shot of some pu being pulled out of its bamboo tong to see if the tea was damaged by water. a hero's welcome awaits the horse riders and gadana who is treated like a hollywood movie star.
