The Price Of Tea In China
I recently found myself using the expression “ what’s that got to do with the price of tea in China “. Afterwards , I realized I was dissing a statement based upon something I knew absolutely nothing about - the price of tea in China. I decided to find out just what the price of tea was in China. The best I could come up with was that good quality, black Chinese tea is priced between $13 - $45 (US dollars) per 100 grams. Quite a variation in price. On the other hand, given China’s manipulation of its currency it probably goes with the territory. Upon further thought, it occurred to me that tea was not one of my favorite drinks, so why should I be concerned about the price of tea in China? The bottom line is that tea is cheap in China and more importantly we should not be concerned with the price of tea in China, especially if you could care less about tea. In conclusion, if one truly feels that what is being said is irrelevant, it is perfectly logical to use the retort “ what’s that got to do with the price of tea in China”. The person whose statement is being dismissed cannot possibly answer your question with any certainty. If this post results in confusion, remember, it has a lot to do about the price of tea in China which cannot be said about previous posts in this blog.
