Tea Zen - A film by Lam Wong

Tea is the world's most popular drink. What is tea and how does it come into being? What is the art of tea? And what is the tea's relationship with Zen? Behind this simple drink lies many layers of meaning and beauty. Vancouver-based artist, Lam Wong takes us through his journey of mystery and discovery following this amazing drink. With interviews from tea farmers, tea lovers, artists, tea masters and a zen monk, Tea Zen gives us a glimpse of how this fascinating drink captures the human spirit.

The Tea Zen film will be premiered during the Tea Zen Exhibition this Summer.
