Posted by: Squaw Valley Lodge
If the cold Truckee-Tahoe evenings are getting to you, then join others for an early evening of tea at Cedar House Sport Hotelon Thursday, February 9th from 6pm-8pm [Tweet This!]. Tahoe Teas will host a dynamic evening of their proprietary certified organic teas and herbal blends. Learn about Tahoe Teas' origins and the Slovenian cultural influence on its founder, Alenka Vrecek. Relish in freshly baked scones from Stella and dive into the first official Truckee-Tahoe showing of "All in this Tea," a film by Les Blank and Gina Leibrecht.
"All in this Tea"follows American tea importer David Lee Hoffman to remote regions of China in search of the finest handmade teas. Not since Robert Fortune clandestinely made his way through China in 1843 (to steal plants and seeds for the British Empire!) has a westerner attempted to gain access to the world where farmers have been making tea for generations. Hoffman introduces the west to one of China's finest cultural gems—the artistry and exquisite taste of fine, handmade tea.
The film is 70 minutes, and Gina Leibrecht will be on site to introduce the film and answer any questions by viewers.
