A website that I also run, but do not publicize very much, is Cazort.net. Cazort.net is a rather old site, pre-dating Facebook. Before I founded RateTea, I used to post some tea reviews on that site. More recently, I started uploading photos there. A few of these photos relate to tea.
This post highlights the top 5 most often-viewed tea-related photos hosted on Cazort.net. These are not necessarily the best or prettiest photos, just the ones that get the most views. If anything, I think these tend not to be the best photos, with perhaps one exception of a photo that I like. For dramatic value, this count will proceed in reverse:
#5. Loose Leaf Tea Sample Bags:
This picture was featured in my blog post Ideal Tea Sample Sizes: How Small, How Large? I personally think the post is much more interesting than the photo, and have no clue why the photo is getting so many views.
#4. Iced Green Tea:
I do think this is a rather pretty photo, probably the only photo on the list that I think has good composition.
#3. Back of Tea Bag Wrapper, Dong Suh Brown Rice Green Tea:
Huh? Yeah, your guess is as good as mine. Not sure why people would want to look at this.
#2. Starway Loose Green Tea Tins:
This is the photo of one of the teas that I featured in my post Cheap Tea: Loose-leaf Teas Offering Outstanding Value.
#1. Dong Suh Tea Bag Wrapper:
Yes, this is the number one most-viewed tea-related photo on my site. The photos of loose-leaf tea all get considerably fewer views.
Some things about the web really don't make much sense to me. What do you think? Do you have a theory as to why the photos of the Dong Suh tea wrappers are getting so many views?
