much appreciate it

Hello @grecoloco, thanks for the information about Cutty Sark :) The speed must have been crucial for a route from China to England in the 1800s. I didn't know English tea came from China.

Hello @serap
Thanks a lot for visiting and commenting

Indeed, I didn't know the information about the origin of the tea either... I was surprised when I found out

As I recently discovered your posts as well and was surprised by their quality... Keep up the good work :)

Thank you very much for your kind words :)
