“Oliver, what’s that tin on top of the brick in the corner hutch?”
“It’s a tin… Passionate Peach… tea…”
“Does it actually have tea in it?”
Oliver retrieved the tin.
It did not contain tea.
It did contain 34 British two pence coins, with dates ranging from 1971 to 1999, one “non redeemable” brass game token, one 2004 U.S. dime, and two Mexican pesos, one from 1992 and one from 1999.
We have no idea where the tin came from. It’s labeled Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, from Ojai, California, and is from 2007.
As last year, I suspect time travellers.
