Terror Tea, Chinas Newest Gastronomic Gruel

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 30, 2012


China is determined to foul up everything they eat, drink and make. Allegedly, master kong, some chinese sweat shop of a company is respusing old tea leaves in its product.
My question is why the freaking Chinese cant be civil and act human? Is it too hard to expect the land of teat lovers to not adulterate that product?
Story
Master Kong, a subsidiary of food and beverage giant Tingyi, which produces several types of tea products, has reportedly being selling its used tea leaves to other companies which sell them again as new, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily.

The Guangzhou newspaper said the used tea leaves are sold to tea factories in Guangzhou, Dongguan and Zhejiang, after being dried and processed, for a few yuan per 500 grams. Millions of kilograms of these tea leaves are produced annually.”
