There is a particular and rare variety of tea that costs more than gold! Here's why and where it is
We already know about fine drinks that cost a lot, including numerous luxury wines or special 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 dollars. Making some calculations we can see that a single gram of this prized tea costs over $ 1,400, almost thirty times what the same amount of gold is worth!
The reason why this infusion is so precious depends on the rarity of the used leaves, an ancient variety of tea that grows only wild in the Wuyi mountains of the Chinese province of Fujian.
Even the processing is 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.
