The mysterious path of tea from its harvest into the cup. Seen through the eyes of merchants and specialists, we discover the international tea market, its production sites and traditional tea auctions. More than just a beverage, tea holds its own in the global economy. The English dominated the market in the 19th century, but today, tea is caught in a battle between huge industrial groups, forever reinventing new marketing and packaging strategies. But there will always be independent tea dealers, aficionados for whom tea quality and diversity are primordial.
