Oolong is a very common Chinese Tea consumed by many with beverage brand, Pokka, producing bottles of oolong tea for sale in market. However, this tea has made its price in the market at the latest Hong Kong’s first ever tea auction. Rare teas with more than half a century worth of history are lined up to be sold to the highest bidder including a priced narcissus oolong variety that is valued at S$160,770. One may probably be able to purchase a car in Singapore with that sum. How many prized possessions are there in the auction, we do not know, but the teas are worth more than a whooping HKD$3 million.
