      Congratulations Ricky! You were the only one to submit the correct answer. Unfortunately you are already a Life Time Member so the reward will do you no good, but you still have the honour. A small correction: it was the leaf’s topside. A young teak leaf does not have enough chlorophyll to mask the carotenoids, hence the initially brownish colour when green and yellow are mixed. This is quite decorative, and although teak has a poor reputation as an ornamental tree, this time of the year it is quite beautiful!
