  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 197. The idiom today is not for all the tea

  • in China. Okay. Well let's take a look at the note here. If someone says that they

  • would not do something for all the tea in China, they mean that they wouldn't do

  • it for any price, no price at all. So you couldn't give them enough money

  • to do it. Okay. Let's continue with the note here.The phrase of course

  • originated in the late 19th century. Remember that's the late 1800s from the

  • fact that China was well known for producing large amounts of tea. Even

  • today China still produces about 25 percent of the world's production of

  • tea. Yeah. So it's still pretty impressive. Therefore if you wouldn't

  • accept the offer of all the tea in China you probably wouldn't accept any

  • monetary offer. So no, no, no value in money anyway because of course all the

  • tea in China would probably be many many billions of dollars which would probably

  • be enough for most people. So if you're not willing to accept that you probably

  • wouldn't accept any money at all. Okay. Let's take a look at a couple of

  • examples here. All right. Example number one. Of course is an a B Part A says

  • would you be willing to do a nude of lovemaking scene in that movie ? And of

  • course you know B doesn't like this idea. So she says not for all the tea in China.

  • So maybe she would never do that. She'd never be willing to be completely naked

  • in a movie. Okay. Okay, so let's look at number two.

  • He is just too ugly. I don't care how rich he is I wouldn't marry him for all

  • the tea in China. All right. It's perfect examples of exactly how it would be used.

  • Okay anyway, I hope you got it. I hope you enjoyed it. Thank you for your

  • time. Bye-bye.
