    Ancient Chinese Tea Most Expensive in the World | 全世界最贵的中国古茶
    Date/Time: 2016/05/22
    Synopsis:
    The most expensive tea on earth comes, of course, from China. Da Hongpao (Imperial Red Robe) tea costs $10,000 per pot of tea, or around $1,400 USD/gram. Da Hongpao Tea is actually in the Oolong tea family. It can only be found in one place, Wuyishan, China.  This is a dark and smoky tea with a strong aftertaste. It is harvested from a group of rare and almost extinct ‘mother trees'.  Cheaper versions costing a mere $1000/kg come from plants grown from cuttings from one of the original trees, but both tea connoisseurs and the market agree, nothing is like the real thing.  However, nature and climate change have not been kind to Da Hongpao. The last leaves were harvested from the trees in 2005 and there is not expected to be a further yield, making the original antique tea almost priceless.
     
    全世界最贵的茶,当然是来自中国。大红袍茶的价格约每壶一万美金,或1400美金/克。大红袍茶是乌龙茶的一种,产地为武夷山。这款烟熏色的茶具有很强的口感,让人回味无穷。茶叶产自一批濒临灭绝的茶树。更便宜的版本约为1000美金/公斤,通过栽培原茶树树枝生长,但是得不到鉴赏家们和市场的认可。现在,自然环境和气候变化加剧了大红袍的灭绝。最后一批茶叶采摘自2005年,以后也不会再产新茶,让这最后一批茶成为了无价之宝。
