I am now thinking of the green tea-leaf infused serviettes a poised air stewardess handed to me with a can of (well…) Sapporo Beer.
I’m down with a common cold right now as I was then, and I used it to blow my nose.
It was the most luxurious piece of tissue I’ve ever smelt.
It wasn’t an artificial green tea smell – I swear when I inhaled I saw rolling hills of tea-bushes (tea bushes???) and tea picking and weathered hands roasting them on a big wok.
I should have asked for a box.
