Let me get you a nice cup of tea
Tea has impacted cultures and changed the course of world history by bringing people together and tearing them apart, from the Opium Wars and American Revolution for independence, to fostering relationships through the ceremony of tea drinking.
For LIVE, Nupur arranges a tea party, harvesting the tea at home and sharing with participants, to think more closely about the origins of this everyday commodity.
