Turkish tea

I tried Turkish tea for the first time today. Reminds me of Lapsong Souchong but without the smoked bacon flavor. This is a good thing. Where does Turkish tea stand in the hierarchy of black teas?

By hierarchy I mean value. Based on the global market, I suppose. Like, at a tea auction, would Turkish tea (in general, I'm sure it varies by estate) fetch more than, less than, or the same as Darjeeling/Assam/Ceylon/Keemum/etc.

Teaclass is interesting for someone brewing the first pot or two but doesn't go into much detail beyond the basics.
