Let’s flip back the pages of the calendar and pretend I’m still in nyc for spring break. What does an after an afternoon snack but before a dinner appetizer call for? Hehehe. An Elvis from Peanut Butter & Co.. On Sullivan St., right near NYU’s Kimmel Center is a dear little, highly overpriced shop that sells a dozen or so variations on the classic peanut butter sandwich. They have everything from a fluffernutter to sandwich with cinnamon raisin peanut butter, cream cheese and apple slices. Running $7-8 a piece, you know you’re getting ripped off, but geez, a store just for peanut butter sandwiches? Even a cheapie like me takes the occasion pleasure of unjustified splurging.
It’s the Elvis for me. I get it on half white, half wheat, grilled with thick gobs of extra chunky peanut butter, sweet banana slices, a luscious drizzle (or pour) of honey, and if that wasn’t heart attack inducing enough, slices of crispy bacon tucked in. Apparently this was Elvis’ favorite late night treat. It’s now one of mine. There’s every flavor and texture in here – the soft mellow bananas, crisp warm bacon melting into savory peanut butter mixed with chunks of nuts and gooey honey binding everything together between hot toasty bread. What a way to go.
(I’m such a loser. I bought their cookbook just for the sake of the pretty pictures even though none of the recipes in there are actual recipes but more along the lines of, “how to assemble a variety of pb&j’s”)

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
