World’s most expensive tea


As the most widely consumed beverage in the world after water, many of us enjoy unwinding with a hot cup of tea after a hard day’s work.

Tea comes in many forms – such as white, green, oolong and black – and can be packaged in several forms – including as loose leaf tea, compressed tea, instant tea, or as tea bags.

PG Tips, a UK tea brand, claims that Britons drink 35 million cups of its tea a day. It’s no wonder then that the brand decided to celebrate PG Tips’ 75th birthday by investing in creating the world’s most expensive tea bag.

Created by Boodles jewellers, the most expensive tea bag in the world is studded with 280 diamonds and worth a jaw-dropping £7,500. The tea bag was donated to a charity auction for Manchester Childrens’ Hospital in England.

However, if diamond-encrusted tea accessories aren’t your thing and you’re more of a tea connoisseur than a bling-bling fan, the world’s most expensive tea – a rare Chinese tea called Tieguanyin – is the perfect alternative.

Priced at £1,700 per kilo, this premium tea is named after the Buddhist deity Guan Yin (Iron Goddess of Mercy). This oolong tea is typically close to a green tea, with little oxidation, meaning it has a very flowery and delicate aroma.

Luckily for anyone who can afford to splash out on this expensive tea, a leaf can be brewed up to seven times before it loses its flavour.

    Wow! A diamond-studded tea bag?? Well, at least the donations will be given to charity. Tea is actually the best alternative for coffee, as some people suggest; although some articles say that it can stain teeth faster than coffee. Hmmm… But don’t let this slow you down from drinking a nice cup of tea. Just visit the dentist. Hehe!
