the tea explorer || an interview with director andrew gregg

The world of tea is indeed rich with people, cultures, and history. Today on the podcast I am fortunate to have director Andrew Gregg join me to discuss the upcoming documentary, The Tea Explorer. Premiering on July 23rd, 2017 at 9pm EST. The Tea Explorer follows self-proclaimed tea-junkie Jeff Fuchs along the ancient Tea Horse Road from Yunnan, China into Shangri-La, and eventually Lhasa, the Kali Gandaki Gorge, and finally Kathmandu. Throughout the journey, we learn about the importance of this forgotten trade route, the people along it, the places founded because of it, and how a simple leaf can be so influential. 

Special thanks to:

Andrew Gregg, Director of The Tea Explorer

David McCaughna, Publicist for the Rick Mercer Report

Michelle Pierce Hamilton, beTeas & the Tea Lounge
