World's Most Expensive Tea?

Well, maybe so and maybe not. Who's to say? But that's what this feature that's been turning up in some of the Indian papers lately would have us believe.

It's a profile of Darjeeling's Makaibari tea garden, which turns out some topnotch teas and which has set several records for priciest tea. The most recent of these was in 2003 when their Silver Tips brought a price of Rs. 18,000 per kilogram.

I've done the math for you and, assuming I've worked it out right, that's about about $11.50 per ounce. Which is pretty pricey, but not all that astounding.
