While we in Zϋrich we went supermarket shopping for cheese to bring back to Berlin for friends.

Passing by the drinks fridge, this display caught our eyes - click on the image to enlarge it and read the line under the name.

We stared for at least a minute, thinking that we were seeing things, but no! This is Iced Black Tea with 5% Swiss hemp/cannabis bloom syrup and a tiny (0.0015 percent) quantity of THC, the active ingredient of marijuana, added to it.

It's such a miniscule amount of THC that you would have to drink a heck of a lot of it to get anywhere near a buzz, but it's still interesting!

Read some of the comments here from users.

While we were standing and looking at the cans, a group of teenage girls came swooping in over our shoulders and grabbed their supply. It's obviously a hit with that demographic!

No, I didn't try it - I don't like tea.

Coming soon to a Dubai supermarket near you. It'll be next to the poppy seed rolls.
