India's 7 Most Expensive Teas: Would You Buy One?

For a tea connoisseur, no price should be too high for the beverage. Still, sometimes tea can fetch astronomical prices

So, what makes tea so expensive? There are multiple reasons. High-range speciality teas enter the market on rare occasions. In some cases, a speciality tea has a slow and lengthy process, which means that the yield is limited to a fixed quantity of grams. They are produced at a low volume, often not more than 15kg. Since these teas are produced in lower quantities, their prices climb up as demand soars. Sometimes, teas, such as the Darjeeling Tea are sold in private auctions to large tea houses in Europe, America, and Japan.

Besides, the leaves of these teas are often plucked on rare and special days. For instance, some rare teas are only harvested during the full moon. Other factors that drive the price include the taste and health benefits associated with a tea variety. So, what are the most expensive teas in India?
Let's find out.
