I stocked up on tea this week, and I’m eager to report on something new. I got a couple different varieties of Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, and today I’m trying Grand Green.
It’s a Moroccan mint blend of green tea, mint, and a bit of stevia, which still cannot be legally listed as a sweetener, so it’s labeled as a “dietary supplement” on the can. (See Stevia.net for more information on this sweet herb and its interesting legal history.)
Upon opening the can, I was enveloped in an absolutely heavenly minty aroma. I let it steep longer than the prescribed 2-3 minutes. (Yes, I’m always flirting with bitter disaster, but there is nothing better than strong, hearty tea!) The flavor that greeted me when I took a sip was scintillatingly minty, yet smooth, and has a touch of astringency.
The sweetness of the stevia is not immediately apparent, but it’s there, and it definitely adds to the enjoyment of this brew. No need to sweeten any further.
It really almost tastes like it smells, which is a rarity, and very pleasing.
Zhena’s Gypsy Tea is 100% organic, is a Fair Trade tea, and Grand Green contains 1/3 the amount of caffeine of coffee.
Next time I write, it will be about a decaf chai, and I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be great!

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.
