Last year a friend of mine from Hong Kong got a packet of Chinese tea leaves called "Poli", I am not a tea lover so never used it but few days while reshuffling all those kitchen cabinets I saw that tea leaves packet lying all alone in one dark corner, and so this how it came into use, I guess this the reason I love culinary souvenirs and never say "no" for them as they always add value to your repertoire.
