'Tea heads' in rural Yunnan embark on a mystical adventure in search of a rare and magic tea to heal their ailing friend.

One Rainy Season in Yunnan: The Path Past Pomasha, is the story of a young American who joins world-renowned Pu'er tea expert, Robert Painter, on a journey to a famous tea mountain in rural Yunnan. In their search for a tea with purported healing powers, Robert and the narrator haggle with tea gurus, feast with cigarette company executives, and experience the darker side of karaoke. After participating in a mystical celebration, and with help from their Chinese patrons, the two adventurers uncover a universal, human truth underlying all cultures.
