Tea Documentaries on DVD

Here is my meager collection of tea documentaries. The Renaissance of Tea is a 49-minute film by Teance featuring Norwood Pratt and filmed on location in China, Taiwan, and the U.S. Explore the World of Tea is a 20-minute promotional film by The Charleston Tea Plantation and a great way to vicariously visit the tea gardens there if you can't make it in person. All In This Tea is 70-minutes of pure enjoyment as we follow David Lee Hoffman to remote regions of China in search of the world's finest teas. It is the winner of the Amsterdam International Documentary Festival (2006); the Berlin, Sydney, Denver, Hawaii and San Francisco International Film Festivals (2007); and the 2007 Copenhagen and Montreal International Documentary Film Festivals. The Meaning of Tea - winner of the 2008 Garden State Film Festival; Renderyard Film Festival London; Bayou City Inspirational Film Festival Houston; South Africa International Film Festival; and Wisconsin Film Festival and previously reviewed on this blog - is an extraordinary 74-minute journey through India, Japan, Taiwan, Morocco, England, France, Ireland and Tea, South Dakota searching out the meaning of tea. There are an additional 45-minutes of Special Features included on this DVD. And finally, we have the History Channel's Modern Marvels 50-minute documentary on Tea.

Are there others out there that you recommend?

I have one of the DVDs you mentioned but didn't know about the rest. I have now ordered all of them except for the one that didn't have online ordering info, and I e-mailed them to learn how to purchase it. Thank you for posting this great information.
