sounds ridiculous? well,
that happened, this company requires only virgin women with good body curve and at
least C-Cup breast size to apply. And they will filter applicants
carefully, the pay is pretty good though.
The ads says "West Mountain is hiring tea-leaf pickers. Employee candidate has to be a
woman with no sexual experience (virgin), has a bra size of at least C, and has
no visible scar or visible wound on her body with a uniform."
This job posting has came under
fire for its discrimination and vulgarity.
The employer, a management
official, responded, "Itâ€™s true. It is to pass on our great
traditions." The company also said that a tea culture festival will be
kicked off featuring 10 at least C-cup virgins chosen from the
hiring performing picking tea leaves this spring.
According to the job ads
posting, the tea-leaf pickers will be required to collect "mouth lip
tea" during the harvest season. They have to clean their mouths, lips and
bodies on time every day and have to be in great shape. The pay is
500 yuan, or US$75 daily, which is not bad by Chinese standards.
The "mouth lip
tea" comes from a folk legend that long time ago, tea leaves used to be
picked by fairy maidens with their mouths. When the boiling water is being
poured onto these tea leaves, these maidens will ascend amidst steam into the
sky. Aroma and taste from the tea made from these leaves is said to cure
According to the same
legend, earlier last century, some Chinese tea lords were doing
experiments with "tea in the breasts." virgins age 16 year old were
asked to do the tea picking in midnight and put leaves into their bra between their breasts. Once they are finished
their work, which has to be done before sunrise, the tea leaves should have
absorbed enough of the virginsâ€™ body scent and aroma, and would make such great
tea. This practice was being phased out before it had the chance to become nationwide
widespread. Pretty much the same practice
is being done today by this hiring company which expects these girls to keep the
tea leaves in their mouths before making tea out of them. Virginity and body
shape are the selling points this company want to exploit to convince consumers
and clients that such tea is of yin (femininity) and purity.
What do you think about
this? A discrimination? Or do you believe such wonderful actually exists from
these kinds of practice?
