How much would you be willing to pay for a great cup of tea? I spend about 2 cents for a tea bag these days, which is about as far as I want to go, considering I drink maybe ten cups a day. Of course, there is a great variety in the most popular drink on earth, so you can pick your poison.
If you're really into bling, you might want to try Yellow Gold Tea Buds, which is sold only in Singapore. Each leaf is painted with real gold! I honestly doubt that adds to the taste, but it will certainly impress your guests. The price is $105.71 for 50 grams, which works out to more than $4 a cup. That doesn't seem all that extravagant, considering what Starbucks charges for a cup of coffee. But Yellow Gold Tea Buds is only the fifth most expensive tea in the world. See what it takes to get consumers to pay even more in a list from top10zen. -via the Presurfer
