Earlier this week, several Indian papers reported that a Kundaly white tea from the Kannan Devan Hills Plantation sold for Rs 1601 per kg. The auction was held in Kochi and the sale represents a record-setting price for this region.
For you American readers, unused to dealing with either rupees or kilograms, this translates to $16.70 per pound or just a bit over $1 per ounce. Which doesn't really sound all that impressive to me, so it may just be that my conversion is off. Hmmm.
