Canadian explorer Jeff Fuchs calls himself a “tea junkie,” a man addicted to the second most popular drink on earth (water is the first). Jeff is a true tea aficionado — recently named one of the top ten “tea influencers” in the world — and his lifelong search for the perfect cup of tea takes him on a journey along the ancient Tea Horse Road.

THE TEA EXPLORER follows Jeff as he travels from the tea forests of southwest China over the Himalayas and down through the magnificent Kali Gandaki Gorge into Kathmandu, where the old tea traders once carried their leaves to market on the backs of mules. 'The Tea Explorer' is a magnificent adventure through a forgotten part of history, revealing a fascinating and hidden world of tea.
