I've had gynostemma tea before. It's the best tea in the world as far as I'm concerned. If you don't know much about Gynostemma, then be sure to look it up it has amazing properties including anti stress qualities. Nourishes you inside and out, and tastes great, lightyears above regular white tea most people drink on a daily basis, and even far surpasses green tea too. It's really a shame this great herb is not more well known in western world. They don't call it miracle grass for nothing!!
