Tripura tea finds flavour in Middle East markets

"With 58 big tea estates, Tripura accounts for 1% of the country’s tea production, which in 2007 was 8 million kg. Tripura’s tea exports, especially to countries in the Middle East have registered a sharp increase. Manu Tea Factory, member of the Tripura Group of Gardens, exported 98,000 kg tea to Iran and will soon be exporting to Kazakhstan in central Asia."
