Tea Anyone?

Why photograph a box of tea?

If you read the small print near the base you'll see that it says "Supreme Monkey Pick Oolong Tea".

MB has visions of an exalted monkey picking tea on the verdant hillslopes in Oolong. This monkey could even wear a saffron robe and tell your fortune by reading the tea leaves.

Or is there a labour shortage in China and monkeys are being trained to replace humans? The mind boggles.

The tea is actually very, very good and MB is very fortunate to have the most gorgeous sister-in-law who always remembers to send her gourmet teas.
