Green Tea Dog Biscuits


From the Ludicrous But True file (by way of the A Quiet Tea Spot blog), comes word of the ultimate in green tea gimmickry and hype. It's Green Tea & Honey Dog Biscuits, friends. Will the madness ever cease?

In a slightly less silly vein, here's one about the 109-year-old puerh tea that's going up for grabs at Hong Kong's first international tea fair. Ten grams of this junk are expected to go for about a thousand bucks. Sounds reasonable to me.

Speaking of Hong Kong, here's a piece from Bloomberg.com that asserts that "Hong Kong, which became the world’s third-biggest trading hub for wine a year after ending duties, said it plans to replicate that success with tea." Ho hum.

Yes, I think it's a bad idea for tea of any quality to go into animal feed. It's too demanding to harvest the stuff with human labor to justify feeding it to pets. I suppose they figure they're still selling tea and staying in business even when the quality doesn't need to be high enough for human consumption. But still, I don't like the looks of this. --Spirituality of Tea
