Leaves are the most economically important part of Tea
Tea belongs to the monsoon lands where high temperatures, long growing season and heavy rainfall help the growth of tea plants.
A temperature of 21°C during the growing season of not less than eight months is ideal.
Warm summers and frequent rains promote rapid leaf reproduction and increase the number of annual pickings.
Tea is cultivated in variety of soils.
The best soil is a light, friable loam with porous sub-soil which permits a free percolation of water.
The most suitable soils are slightly acidic and without calcium
