Products:
The feature length documentary film, The Meaning of Tea (2008), filmed in eight countries where tea is revered, received widespread acclaim at film festivals across the nation and abroad. Following the film’s release, The Meaning of Tea’s soundtrack, a compilation of tea-inspired world music, Music of Tea, was produced, and a gorgeous companion book, The Meaning of Tea: A Tea Inspired Journey, published in late 2009.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Meaning of Tea explores the calm and purposeful nature of tea through the words of tea growers, tasters, entrepreneurs, shopkeepers, scholars and experts from eight countries. Through more than 50 interviews, these engaging characters reveal a remarkable reverence for the plant, the ceremony, the manufacturing, the distribution of tea, as well as its ability to bring peace, calm, health, friendship, and often wisdom into their lives. Inspired by Scott Chamberlin Hoyt's lyrical documentary film of the same name, The Meaning of Tea is at its heart a journey to connect with the vital forces that infuse tea with meaning around the modern world. A rich brew of wisdom and ideas articulated by many of the tea industry's most inspiring members--from Taiwan to India, Ireland to Tea, South Dakota--The Meaning of Tea unfolds its secrets one sip, one cup, one person at a time. Through ruminations of the culture, ritual, history, agriculture, health, and spirituality of tea, the reader is invited to explore and embrace the notion that tea, though more popular than ever, is still an underutilized source of health, solace, and friendship for the modern world. Illustrated with more than 150 photographs, The Meaning of Tea: A Tea Inspired Journey, by Scott Chamberlin Hoyt and Phil Cousineau, is a beautifull designed paperback original with a two-color interior with French flaps. The perfect gift for any tea lover.

Director, Scott Chamberlin Hoyt travels through India, Japan, Taiwan, Morocco, England, France, Ireland, and even Tea, South Dakota. Unveiling tea's mysterious appeal, the film considers the question of whether there is any inherent "meaning" to be found in tea, particularly in an amped-up, high-tech era increasingly dominated by mass-marketing and fast food. The DVD offers Special Features including an interview with director on the making of the film. Experience the Japanese Tea Ceremony; enjoy additional interviews with "Tea People"; meet the "Tea Contrarian"; and see an alternate opening and ending to the film. By visiting places where tea is still revered and by investigating its role in these societies, the film suggests the profoundly positive role tea may play in the renewal of our world. 74 minutes with 45 minutes of Special Features.
