You can always refer to the tshark manual page, of which a current version is available on the Wireshark web site.

As for your question: use the command line option -r <filename>

Have you looked at the tshark manual page or tried the help output from tshark tshark -h?

Using either method you should see the -r <infile> option to read from a file.
