Best Documentaries Every Tea Lover Must Watch

Ralph Waldo Emerson says, "Some people will tell you there is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea." Well, ask a tea lover, and he will tell you about the therapeutic effects of tea and how they find strength and hope in it.

And obviously, you can relate to all of the aforementioned statements if you fancy tea. Whether you agree or not, tea is the best drink to have all year, in winters and summers, in happiness and sorrow, in solitude, and with a companion.
