Exotic comestibles

I've had reindeer while visiting Norway, but only as steak. The pate is said to be made with cognac and spices. The "monkey-picked tea" is described as follows:
"... Nowadays the practice of monkeys picking tea has all but died out, except in one small remote village where they still continue this remarkable tradition. No monkeys are harmed or mistreated in order for us to bring this rare brew to you! In fact the monkeys and their ancestors before them have been doing this job for generations and are treated as respected members of their human keeper's families."
The scorpion is "specially bred" for human consumption and heat-treated to remove toxins. It is sugar free. Posted for Dave and Lan, who may have had the opportunity to enjoy this delicacy in Wuhan.
