I think your advice is good for many of the teachatters, though. A different economic class if I might say. Agarwood at $500/per gram requires a different economic category that is not your average tea drinker!
Can barely afford it so I use it only in rare occassion. I use a sliver in one brewing session only. A gram of it is micro sliced into almost 50 micro sliver pieces. And still this one tiny miny micro sliver elevate the tea to many levels higher..in aroma, taste, texture and mental and spritual enhancement. Quite a unique experience and those who tried it would definately appreciate it.
I've tried aged tea with authentic (albeit processed) shilajit before. Luckily it was at the last brew, as it tasted just like dissolved shilajit and the effects didn't merge or reinforce each other either. Really interesting to see there are people pursuing this sort of tea alchemy.
