The increase in luxury good prices is more than triple the 2.7 percent rise in the consumer price index - a measure of prices of a basket of common consumer goods - over the same 12-month period. According to the Hurun Report's index, the price of 30-year old pu'er tea rose 33.3 percent - beating out a membership at Sheshan Golf Club in Shanghai (25 percent), a Rolls Royce Phantom EWB (9.55 percent) or a stay at a superior suite at the Peninsula Hong Kong.
Pu'er tea, which is only produced in Yunnan province, was once a tribute tea produced exclusively for the emperor. In recent years it has gone from relative obscurity to becoming a popular tea across East Asia to its current status as a luxury good and investment item, especially aged pu'er.
