India’s tea production in the first half of the current calendar year has increased by 4.51 per cent over the same period of 2016.

“Tea Board has now released the data for June which shows a decline of 2.81 per cent in the country’s production to 143.02 million kg (mkg) essentially because of 4.70 per cent fall in North India to total 116.40 mkg.

“South Indian production has increased by 6.44 per cent to reach 26.62 mkg.”, Rajesh Gupta, compiler of annual Global Tea Digest, told BusinessLine.
