ancient recipe 20680 calls for it.


note on trading number decoding: The first digits are the year the 'recipe' was first created and puerh is generally thought to have started aroun 200CE, the second to the last is the grade of leaves (8 being lowest), and the last is the factory number ( 0 meaning unknown). So it's my attempt at a puerh joke, basically saying 'since the beginning of puerh crappy shu of unknown origin requires peasant sweat. Jokes should not require explaination. I'm a failure.

"someone" should pay these workers to keep their shirts on, gloves on, and shoes only to wear in the factory...
120$/lb of leaf mixed with sweat, dirt, cigs, hair, bugs, etc is not my kinda deal
/rant...

Funny, I grew up in farm country in the midwest and that aspect of it just didn't bother me. I think that reaction is just city folks not knowing where their food comes from. (?)

i milked cows, played in chicken houses, cut their heads of, boiled them, plucked their feathers, farmed potatoes and corn. (with other family members)
but chicken, pig meat costs ... ~ 4$/lb, i dont mind any tooth, bone fragments feathers etc...

i wouldn't buy any meat that would cost me 120$/lb and have "stuff" on it...
