I'm noticing it more and more, they even had an article about tea in Men's Health magazine. I want this to stay unpopular in America because if the stupid hipsters get a hold of this like they did for craft beer (it is basically tailor made for them) they will drive up prices because they pay stupid prices for things that they have no idea about.
That's happened already, in pseudo-tea store chains like Teavana. It's following in the footsteps of Starbuck's, with teas of unknown origin souped up with pretty names and flavors. We passed one at a mall, and I had no desire to try anything.
