Grown in some three dozen countries around the world, tea production is big business, which is not surprising
since next to water, it is the most widely consumed beverage.
The majority of tea producing countries are in Asia, with China and India being the largest producers. The
growing, processing and production of tea products is both a skilled and time consuming process. Tea shoot plucking
is still a manual process with a skilled tea picker able to harvest over thirty kilograms of leaves each day, which
is enough to produce approximately nine kilograms of processed tea.
Since black tea is the most widely consumed beverage in terms of quantity drunk, the majority of tea factories
produce this type of tea.
