Tracing Tea on a Rickshaw
I received an interesting email from Neil at The Tracing Tea Project today.
From the site:
In 2007, the 350th anniversary of tea’s introduction to Britain, the Tracing Tea team will journey from the famous Indian tea port of Kolkata to London through the world’s great tea-drinking nations. Using tea as a passport, the team will be working closely with local experts and academics to produce a book and TV series celebrating the peoples, history and cultural diversity of the countries along our route.
Fascinating stuff. They have a blog too, which I presume will be updated as they travel.
They’re also selling ad space on their rickshaw – you can load up a 3D model of the rickshaw and choose where you want your ad to appear.
A brilliant idea! Good luck guys!
