Even More Expensive Tea
What's the most you'd pay for an ounce of tea? Would you go as high as $17? If you're Jennifer Cauble, a Forth Worth resident who bought tea at the first ever tea auction in the United States, you certainly would.
The auction took place earlier this year at the World Tea Expo, in Las Vegas. Cauble shelled out $6,000 for 22 pounds of tea from the Glendale Estate in the Nilgiri region of southern India.
While I can't imagine forking over that much for any tea, I obviously haven't had a chance to sample this one. Perhaps it's so astounding that I'd immediately change my mind.
