Chapter 433: This Tea Isn’t Ordinary (Part Two)
Lin Dong never heard his dad talking to him like this, maybe they were really at the end of the rope here.
With his phone in his hand, Lin Dong didn’t know whether he should call his teacher. Although there was the formality of him becoming his apprentice, it wasn’t very formal and solemn, and it was also not too long ago. They didn’t even cultivate this teacher and apprentice relationship yet, so it was going to be pretty awkward to just ask for a favor so quick. It would be as if Lin Dong became his apprentice just to use him for favors or something.
Lin Dong suddenly stood up and said, “I will go and find Miss Zheng.”
When he packed the stuff he just dumped out back into his bag, he picked up that tea package bag. He remembered something and said to his big brother, “Bro, help me buy more of this tea. I will go and apologize to Miss Zheng now.”
Then, Lin Dong left.
Young Master Lin took over the Da Hong Bao package and took a careful look. “Huh? How come I’ve never seen this tea before?”
Then, he passed it to Lin Han and asked, “Dad, you know tea, can you take a look?”
Lin Han nonchalantly took over the bag from his elder son’s hand, and he was shocked, wondering if he saw it wrong or something.
Nowadays, those that were rich all liked tea and understand how to drink tea, and even if they didn’t, they would pretend as if they did. As an entrepreneur for so many years, he actually knew quite a lot about tea since he needed to know what was good to serve to his guests. He had also drunk a lot of good tea, and although he hadn’t yet tried any special supply tier teas (TL Note: specially supplied for high-level government officials, you can’t buy these types of tea with money), he had still seen it before and also heard stories about it. Some of the businessmen would tend to brag when drinking tea, and as they bragged and bragged, they would often get to the level of Yanjing grade special supply tea. And those that had actually drunk tea with high-level officials would brag as they tell their friends more about the level of rarity of this type of tea.
When Lin Han just picked up the packaging, he didn’t think too much of it. But, when he flipped over the package and saw the print “Special Supply”, he looked at the place of production: Wuyi Mountain.
Special Supply: Premiere Ballroom (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
Tea Name: Da Hong Pao (Black Tea)
On the packaging paper also contained the serial number and the gram unit data, as well as the year of which it was produced and the Yanjing capital seal.
Holy fack. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
After a closer look, Lin Han was completely dumbfounded. Although he had never seen the real thing before, this seal, the place of production, and the special supply tag can’t be wrong! Even if someone would do counterfeit special supply teas, no one would have the balls to counterfeit this grade of special supply!
“Where did this come from?” Lin Han immediately called out to Lin Dong who was about to go out. (read on noodletowntranslated dot com to support the actual translators)
“Huh?” Lin Dong was still deep in thought about how he was going to beg Miss Zheng. He was even ready to be humiliated, and he was a bit in a daze when his dad called him.
Lin Han went to him and showed him the packaging as he asked him again, “I’m asking you, where did this tea package come from? Your friend drinks this stuff?”
“Huh? Is there something wrong with this tea?” Lin Dong asked.
Lin Han anxiously asked, “Just answer me, who’s the person that drinks this tea and what is that person’s relationship with you? Did you pick this up somewhere or did someone gift this to you? Where did the tea leaves in it go?”
“Oh, yeah, my friend,” Lin Dong said, “They drink this tea and said that I’m too wasteful when making it. I saw they were a bit stingy with this tea so I just took the package and said I would buy him a truckload later.”
“A truckload?” Lin Han didn’t know whether he should laugh or cry. He glanced at his son and said, “Do you know what kind of tea this is? How come I don’t even know that you have a friend like this? Can you give him a call? Who is this person?”
“Is it really hard to buy this tea?” Lin Dong asked curiously.
