cool tea videos

Saw two cool tea videos recently.

One is made by Leafbox Tea, a relatively new organization. I enjoy their editorials very much and their tea forum is rapidly growing. It's great to have a promotional video generally for tea!

Another is made by Chico Grande. I don't know who they are but this is probably the best Gongfu video clip I've seen in a long time. I have to say I can't bear with the pretty girl type of Gongfu session show, which is more commonly seen on TV and YouTube. The girls are always pretty, but in those videos everything about Gongfu ceremony looks just so pretentious. This one, in my eyes, has the true Gongfu spirit in it.

The shots and composition in the gongfu video are wonderful.
The un-matching cups,
the miscellaneous tea ware,
the casual conversation over tea,
it embodies the spirit of tea!
Such a fine example!
I had been looking for a video such as this for quite a long time now!
