Tea and Spices

Was thinking yesterday about tea and spices.  Specifically, about how people used to invest a lot of money in filling huge wooden ships full of tea and sailing it around.  Same thing with spices.  They were considered valuable treasures.

Nowadays, I can walk into the grocery store and buy a box of tea for $2.  Likewise, when even a Waffle House has a pepper shaker, you know its value as a commodity is essentially nil.
