Georgian tea still problematic

Wednesday, July 30
Currently there are tea plantations spread over 20,000 hectares in Georgia. Quality harvests have been obtained from 3,000 hectares. The rest of the plantations need to be upgraded. Georgian- produced tea is sufficient to cover only around 18% of the local market. However, analysts assume that the Georgian tea industry could produce high-quality tea that will meet local and world demands. Due to the tradition of producing tea in Georgia, the industry still has the potential to improve its quality. Such an approach will create more jobs inside the country.
