More shave ice for Hawaii’s hot summer weather. But no matter how hot it gets, Hawaii type ‘hot’ will always be more welcome than mainland ‘hot’, cause we got tradewinds!
After breakfast at Cinnamon’s and an afternoon at the beach, we headed over to Island Snow on the way back into town. I guess everyone else had the same idea cause boy, was it packed in there!
For $2.50 we each had a “to-go” sized cup, with a choice of up to three flavors and a scoop of ice cream hidden in the bottom. The ice here is noticeably coarser than Waiola’s and Ice Garden, but after you beach, there’s nothing more welcome than shave ice, ground coarse or fine. I chose lilikoi, lychee and li hing mui for my three flavors (bottom left), a great combo if I do say! The li hing mui was so strong that it overtook the lychee and lilikoi. About three scoops/sips/bites into my shave ice, that lovely sweet-sour flavor was all I could taste. I suppose it was all for the better…li hing mui was my favorite of the three!

If you follow what gets said about prices each year, you would end up with the impression that the average price of tea has gone up. But more specifically the price at the most sought after regions (say Lao Banzhang, Bingdao) have gone completely through the roof. A lot of this narrative is anecdotal. Tales of rich Chinese buying up all the top-end product from X area. Part of it can also be seen when someone in the Sinosphere posts the maocha prices per location. These lists come with all sorts of contextual caveats, but the trend seems real. I don’t see any red flags to really doubt this storyline, but I was curious if it’d show up by looking at some of the data of prices on production by western facing vendors.
