Frog Keeps a Mistress


A tea shop in Shanghai called “Qingwa Bao Ernai” is being forced to change it’s name.

“The name is also against social morality and common ethics”

said a commercial bureau official, Xu Jun.

Apparently the name translates to “Frog keeps a mistress” or “Frog hugs the little mistress”. Teachat, another tea blog, has a nice little post about this.

  1. So now they’ve succeeded even more in gaining free publicity by being asked to change the name. Smart.

  2. I was also struck by the fact that “government officials….have been ordered by the party to declare any such liaisons”. I wonder what the compliance rate is with that government order 🙂

  3. btw, thank you for the endorsement

  4. teachat: you’re very welcome!
