All the tea in China

Photo from Harvard Business

via ChineseTea: Here are some pretty cool photos showing aspects of the tea trade in 19th century China. The photo above shows workers packing the tea tightly into chests. (Wouldn't you kill for a handful out of that mound o' tea?) The page displaying these photos is from, of all places, Harvard's business school, and thus gives a slightly interesting commercial slant on the age-old history of this beverage.
