There is a particular and rare variety of tea that costs more than gold! Here's why and where it is
We already know of fine drinks that cost a lot, including numerous luxury wines or particular liqueurs that need a long process. None, however, reaches the value of this particular tea.
His name is Da Hong Pao and a cup of this drink can cost over $ 10,000. Doing some calculations, you can see that a single gram of this prized tea costs over $ 1,400, almost thirty times what it is worth the same amount of gold!
The reason this tea is so valuable is the rarity of the leaves used, an ancient variety of tea that only grows wild in the Wuyi Mountains of the Chinese province of Fujian.
The processing is also very complex, each leaf is in fact washed with goat's milk for a certain period of time, it is then cooked and left to dry for very long periods. It would seem that the precious drink also has almost miraculous healing abilities.
