Cryogenics

by bambooforest » Jun 25th, '13, 16:54

Wars, pestilence, famine, gunpowder...

There are many things that can unfold in this world, things that simply can't be predicted.

We live in an unstable world.

The dollar could drop so heavily that we'll be lucky to afford gunpowder on a good day... People will kill others over sencha as they have killed people over sneakers.

Sad!

But what if... just what if... you could put your tea in cryogenics, effectively freezing it, so that when you took it out, even several decades later, it would be as fresh as the day it was picked. If you did this, for example, before a possible severe drop in the dollar that led to sencha costing 1,000 USD per 100 grams you'd be rich in tea.

Would you do it? And if so, would you purchase a life-time supply of tea in a single year? A single month?

The ball is in your court.

P.S. - The rumor that I have 3,000 dollars in yen stockpiled is fact

Ask Dr Freeze! All your sencha storing needs are just a click away!

Getting liquid nitrogen might be a problem; better to save pu-erh for the apocalypse :)

I second the pu-erh suggestion. It is more practical and already has a market.

You could buy one of these to go with your Dr. Freeze

make sure you get lots of solar panels and deep cycle batteries to power your cryogenics setup too!

We have one of those in my office, next to the K-cup machine. Delicious!
