Hey Everybody, there’s a new blogger on board here at AC, and this is her first post – ever – anywhere!  Welcome, Carrie Watson, it’s great to have you with us.

Zhena’s Gypsy Tea, one of our favorite purveyors of organic and fair-trade certified teas, recently introduced a collection of extremely rare teas called the Opus Garden.


The ten different tea varietals in the Opus Garden Collection are grown using sustainable harvesting practices that support environmental protection programs. The company says the teas represent the best of a single harvest and are produced in very limited quantity, so limited in fact, the offerings will change throughout the year according to availability. We are especially excited to try the Vietnamese Lotus Green Tea, which was once reserved for the royal family and the wealthy.
