ABSTRACT

The tea plant is kept as an evergreen shrub by pruning When hand picked, only the leaf bud and first two leaves are plucked from the plant. Because of increasing labor costs, mechanieal harvesting is now being used in several countries. In tropical countries, tea leaves are harvested all year around. In temperate countries, harvesting is seasonal.
