First, thanks to all of you who emailed and called in regards to my last entry. I will keep you posted on my client’s recovery.
What possibly could follow the most serious piece that I have ever written? Monkey tea. Make that Monkey Picked Tea. That’s absolutely right. Tea that is picked by specially trained monkeys. The site claims:
Nowadays the practice of monkeys picking tea has all but died out, except in one small remote village where they still continue this remarkable tradition. No monkeys are harmed or mistreated in order for us to bring this rare brew to you!
This tea can be purchased for $25. Proving once again that we humans can come up with some pretty creative things to spend money on.
I can’t say for sure that buying Monkey Picked Tea is a good financial tea, but I can tell you that it may be worth $25 for a great story.
Let’s hope the monkeys washed their hands. Because the last time I was at the zoo, a monkey tried to throw…never mind. Monkey tea…he he he.
