How does one find authentic tea? If you were to rate in order of purity and even pricing, the best would be white tea, followed by Oolong, green and finally black tea. Kausshal Duggar, founder of Teabox, says his company sold India’s most expensive tea at Rs 2 lakh a kilo last year. “White tea is always worth a few lakh but it’s more like a concoction of fruits and flowers in your mouth. It is handmade and only produced at a specific time of the year under specific conditions,” he explains. “It is not marketed and is produced in very small quantities.”
