The official website for Wang Ye-ming’s Taiwan/Japan co-produced movie Tea Fight added a trailer earlier today.

The film involves an ancient “tea curse” passed down through generations of the Yagi family. When the wife of a tea shop owner (Teruyuki Kagawa) dies, he believes she was a victim of this curse and decides to shut down his business. His daughter (Erika Toda) takes it upon herself to research the curse on the Internet, and discovers a special tea in Taiwan that can counteract her family’s misfortune. Her father follows her, thinking that she’s falling into some sort of trap set up by Taiwanese tea makers. Eventually, this all leads to a rematch of a “tea fight” which originally took place nearly 1,000 years ago.

Confused? Me too. The trailer won’t particularly help matters, but it looks pretty interesting anyway.
