An Indian tea company has delivered a huge consignment containing 6,000 bags of famous Assam green tea to Donald Trump with a message to the presumptive Republican presidential nominee that it is never too late to ‘cleanse yourself’.

“Dear Mr Trump, namaste from India, we are sending you lots and lots of natural green tea. It fights against harmful free radicals. It helps purify mind and body and regain a healthy balance. It has also proven to make people smarter. Please Mr Trump drink the tea. For your sake, for America’s sake, for the world’s sake,” Kolkata-based Te-A-Me Teas said in a video explaining the idea of sending green tea to Trump.

“The message is simple: Mr Trump, it’s never too late to cleanse yourself,” the company said yesterday, a day after its representatives delivered a consignment of some 6,000 green tea bags to the Trump Towers in New York.

“Donald Trump has the whole world worried… we can’t stop him, but maybe we can change him,” the video said.

While the cost of the tea consignment, sufficient for four years, was not made public, Sumit Shah, Managing Director of the company said its health potential is immense.

“We believe that green tea with all its goodness can help Mr Trump and in turn benefit his country and the world at large,” Shah said, adding that the consignment of tea bags is based on the presumption that the real estate tycoon would drink three cups a day.

“If he needs more, we’ll be happy to provide. Green tea has been proven to fight against harmful free radicals and cleanse the mind and bodies, helping one regain a healthy balance,” Shah said, adding that these green teas can help change Trump for the better.

The Trump Campaign did not respond to questions on the green tea bags from India.

            stani Civil Service and Administration are stupid:lt;br/gt;They can't talk a full sentence without getting brain freeze.lt;br/gt;This is because of disease of the brain and senility.lt;br/gt;They need young go-guns who can talk English swiftly and sharply in the UN and media.lt;br/gt;Nawaz Sharif is a stupid fool with no sense of direction or firmness.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Since India keeps insisting Kashmir is an "integral" part of India, war is the only solution to the Kashmir problem. lt;br/gt;India is operating under the umption that Kashmir is not negotiable, no matter what. lt;br/gt;So a deadlock situation has been reached.lt;br/gt;No other option has worked to break the deadlock for the past 20 years.lt;br/gt;Therefore, war is the only viable option to break this deadlock and resolve the unfinished business of parion.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;As a DIPLOMATIC MANEUVER, stan should immediately Declare War against India under the rules of War.lt;br/gt;All agreements not to attack nuclear installations will consequently stand cancelled--no holds barred, gung-ho.lt;br/gt;stan military can then make preparations to launch nuclear strikes at the times and targets of their choosing.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;The stakes in the war will be Indian occupied Kashmir (IOK). lt;br/gt;If stan wins the war, it will take over Kashmir and end all future wars. lt;br/gt;If India wins the war, it will keep Kashmir to fight another war in the future. lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;India does not have the ballz to take over stan occupied Kashmir (POK) because of Chinese military in POK. lt;br/gt;In the long run, India will be the loser, no matter what outcome, and Kashmir will be part of stan.

                  Add Sena ( Senakot- Laxative) to the tea. It will purge the " pent up" junk from his gut!

                    If tea can purify, then Sulaimani(black tea) should have purified minds of our Mullas. It is true that too much beef can slow down hypothalamus of brain.
