This is a (big) tin of cookies from Hawaii’s very own Cookie Corner. It was given to mom as a gift around 9:00am. My mom asked me to watch over it. And watch over it I did. The (entire) tin was empty by 5:00pm. It was delicious. And I officially feel like the world’s biggest glutton. I never want to see another one of those cookies ever again in my life. Even though every single one was darn good, every single one-bite cookie, buttery and crunchy all the way though. So harmless, a single cookie.

Talk about sugar overload. I think I’m going to find something salty to eat now. Soup or something like that…

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.
