Yes, Da Hong Pao, literally translated to ‘big red robe,’ is a kind of tea available in China that costs unbelievably. Mainly, its price is calculated over 30 times its weight in gold.
Why this tea is so expensive???
The reason it’s so costly is that it is rare and, therefore, expensive and available in China. The Wuyi mountains in China’s Fujian Province are acknowledged to be the original and natural place for the tea to grow.
The makers of this area have been in the trade since generation and it passes generation to generations with their special annual ritual.
