I drink lots of tea. Lots! And so, I am thrilled that GPB partnered with Kennesaw State University's Confucius Institute to produce a documentary on the history and origins of Chinese tea.

Did you know that after water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world? This global elixir was revealed first in China.

To follow that history we sent a GPB team to China, and what they found tells us so much about Chinese life and culture, but also our own here in The United States.

This stunning documentary will delight you with extraordinary photography and wonderful storytelling.

Join me tonight, Tuesday, April 26 at 8pm, on GPB for the premiere of "Chinese Tea: Elixir of the Orient". You can also catch an encore on Sunday, May 1 at 2 PM.
