Really, Really Expensive Tea
A while back I wrote about Silver Tips, a tea from India's Makaibari Estate. Some claim that it's one of the world's most expensive teas, but it pales in comparison to two cups brewed up on an EasyJet flight a few years back.
London's Telegraph reports that a British woman was awarded compensation of £25,000 following a 2002 incident in which a flight attendant dumped two cups of hot tea in her lap. Which works out to £12,500 per cup of tea. I didn't figure the conversion to dollars but suffice to say that these were two very expensive cups of tea.
If you're thinking this might be a good way to pick up some spare cash, think again. Hot tea is not recommended as a career strategy. Read the full article here.
