Muji has it at the inflated Muji design price of 10 bags for 95NT. I bought some about 3 years back at Di Hua Jie for a good price. Never been able to find it since, but will look a little harder now that I know what its called.

It's a great tea, tho, I wonder about the use of pesticides, etc, in its manufacture and storage.

I just got some annatto seed powder, allspice and powdered spinach in from a mail order company called Mountain rose herbs, and they sent along a catalog, which happens to list green, red and vanilla rooibos (all organic, fair trade). Check out www.mountainroseherbs.com if you're interested. They've got quite a catalog of other stuff too, including all kinds of tea strainers and infusers, St. John's wort, licorice root and powder, and so on.
