Tea Bagging in Taiwan

What's in that sack over there? Tea sweepings! So what are you going to do with this stuff?

When visiting high quality tea producers in Taiwan I noticed that they sweep up and bag any tea dust from the floor after a day of producing. I asked what they do with these sacks of dust and their answer was a bit of a surprise.

This tea is put into teabags and sold to high end hotels as top quality Taiwanese Oolong! Whenever I step into a high class hotel serving tea bags I am reminded of this day with the farmers.
