The Biggest Contribution For Assam Small Tea Growers. 2

The small tea growers community has been successful to bring in a green revolution to rural Assam and today contributes around 29% of the total tea produced in Assam. However, due to the fact that most of these small growers don't have access to the financial support needed to setup their own tea factory, they sell their green leaves to bought-leaf factories owned by big companies, at an average price of 20/- Rupees per kilo. Many of the small tea growers of the region are currently struggling to manage their tea plantations due to such low prices for their green leaves.

The processing method is the real point of division between various teas made from ingenious Camellia Sinensis plant. What happens between plucking and processing of Sinensis leaves gives a unique taste, colour and aroma to each of the tea variety, from Green, black to oolong tea.

However, white tea is one of the unusual types emerging from the parent Sinensis plant. It’s extracted from the silver-ish fine white hairs from the unopened plant buds, and undergoes basic withering through air drying or mechanical drying methods, thus requiring minimal processing.
