Priceless Heavenly Tea

Many people have been guessing about the nature of my profession and here is some insight. I work for a bunch of young bosses who are always venturing into new opportunities with good starts but no  follow ups. They have Chinaman strategies and smoke heavily inside the office & meeting rooms daily besides swearing vulgarisms each day instead of doing holy chanting. 

They try to dabble with everything under the sun as long as they felt that Goose could lay Golden Eggs! Their hopeful gooses are plantations, property development, outdoor advertising and now beverage exports. My main responsibility is to offer consultancy services to the property developers for their outdoor advertising needs. I have to sweet talk them besides haggling big prices and arm twisting till getting bruised by me. The clients should love me as I will often entertain them with torrid grandmother stories and the worst gossips under the sun thus making them to drop jaws.
I also have a boss who is a politician and I have to carry his stinky balls whenever he visits our KL office. He has big dreams and big connections overseas but remains relatively low profile. It has been months that I have been preparing to get his coffee and green tea to fulfill his market orders in China.



 

I was astonished to see his accomplishment to lay his hands on the world's oldest green tea trees that are only found in the mountains of Laos. The trees are well over 1000 years old and are fully protected under the watchful eyes of the military troops. He found a niche market for the elite tea drinkers in China who would pay any price for the most unique or finest graded green tea leaves. The above sample boxes contain just 5 sachets each and would probably be tagged at US$25 each. The elite drinkers in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Xiamen and others swore that it was like a heavenly nectar. Sadly it will not be available in our country as the yearly harvests are so minimal making it so priceless.

    2. I raised my eyebrow when reading about Anay's job scope. Me, being a Katak Di Bawah Tempurung, only dealing with computer, boss and colleagues like Ah Hua.

    3. Now I think, after I finished the tea, I must air dry the tea leaves and keep it inside my pillow. So heavenly priceless, I must fully utilize the tea to its max.

    4. Yalor, annay's gift is so priceless!

      I will pour hot water into it 10x for one sachet and drink it from 8AM till 5.30PM. Then, I put the used sachet inside my fridge and use them as my eye mask at night.

      Then only I follow yannie's instruction to air dry the tea leaves and keep it inside my pillow to promote better sleep.

    1. Yannie is a good talker too, compare to Ah Hua. She can promote something very well and too bad she's not into Marketing line.

      Sometimes, Yannie can twist the fact and makes Ah Hua blur-blur and it's wasted she didn't join the lawyer teams to put all those criminals behind bars.

I bought some green tea leaves before, expensive too...from one part of China..forgot where.. but tried once only..cos after drinking, felt nausea and couldnt sleep since then, I don't drink chinese tea but oats only.. hahaha...

    1. LOL. There are many China tea leaves which were recycled from used tea leaves!!! The con men got the leaves were dried and rolled again before spraying some chemical. They will pack them in beautiful boxes! Hope you didn't drink that nausea tea!!! I am not kidding!

      Delete
    2. yes true.. they dry it back and put some colour in it..

    1. Just like me, my tea will grow fungus soon. I am thinking of pouring all the almost expired tea into the bath tub and soak myself like Japanese Onsen. Will I turn brown colour???

    2. I thought the longer you keep the tea leave, it'll price more? Like wine? Got expiration date one, huh? I better go and check my tea.

      By the way, can use tea as natural hair color dye. Soak 4 sachets in a pot of water, let it cool and dip your head into it. Wrap your head for 10 minutes and rinse off. I read this somewhere which claim to be quite effective :D

      Delete
    3. The only tea that its price will soar with age is Pu Er tea. They goreng it many times till perfect.

      Can dye hair????? lol

    1. They have many 1000 year old trees and you still need to prune the leaves to keep them growing. Better sell the leaves so that can buy fertilizers and hire guards. Laos is the poorest country in Asia.
