An Indian tea company sent 6,000 green tea bags to White House hopeful Donald Trump, believing they could help him to become “smarter” and cleanse his poor soul.
The unusual gift – which equals to four years worth of tea supply if drunk four times a day – was from Kolkata-based Te-a-Me Teas, it’s executive director Sumit Shah told AFP.
Shah also said that the company had set up a website, www.teafortrump.com, where people could tweet to Trump and urge him to drink the tea daily.
“We firmly believe green tea can do a lot of good to people. We thought green tea will help him (Trump) cleanse his mind, body and soul,” he said.
“Green tea is also proven to make people smarter. So our message is, please Mr Trump drink the tea. For your sake, for America’s sake, for the world’s sake.”
Trump, a political novice and a real estate tycoon, has been gaining an infamous reputation for his racist rhetorics and radical views on Muslims and immigrants.
Next week, Trump is poised to be formally nominated to run against Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
The Indian tea company said it hopes to instill responsible leadership among famous personalities across the world, and denies their move as a publicity gimmick.
“We don’t even sell in the US. I guess with Trump it’s just about the timing (of our gesture),” Shah said.
Well, let’s seriously hope that those teabags would actually work, for the world’s sake.
