The coronavirus pandemic has forced more people to brew their morning cups of tea at home instead of paying someone else to do it for them in a café. Now, the prices of wholesale tea leaves are on the rise, so consumers are paying more. But is this jump in prices the result of increasing demand or falling supply?                 

The Wall Street Journal reports that wholesale tea leaves cost 50% more today than in March. Prices for the tea that most consumers purchase are also going up: Packaged tea bags cost 1.7% more, and liquid tea (bottled concentrate) is 9.6% more expensive compared to last year.

Have exhausted consumers who are in search of the distraction that comes from sipping on a warm beverage during a pandemic raised the demand for tea? Or have well-meaning experts who praise the antioxidant benefits of tea encouraged more people

The Tour Championship feels separate from the rest of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and in some ways, it stands out that way. The amount of money at stake — $45 million split between 30 golfers — dwarfs every other prize pool in golf, and while winning that trophy is prestigious, capturing the $15 million that comes with it can be life-changing for several golfers in this field.

Last year, in the first iteration of these playoffs, Rory McIlroy took home the first $15 million first prize (it was previously $10 million). This year, Dustin Johnson went wire-to-wire at the Tour Championship to cash the huge first-place prize.

That’s not to say getting second is a bad thing. The runner-up netted $5 million, while third place got $4 million and so on down the list.

Even those who struggled at East Lake took home six-figure bonuses. Let’s take a look at
