A total 3,376 tons of Iranian tea worth $3.28 million were exported to 20 countries in the first two months of the current Iranian year (March 21-May 21), according to the executive manager of the Tea Factories Syndicate.
“Over the same period, 12,623 tons of tea worth $62.83 million were imported,” Sadeq Hassani was also quoted as saying by Young Journalists Club. 
The official noted that green tea leaf harvest in Iran’s northern provinces since the beginning of the year up until June 27 reached 56,700 tons worth 5 trillion rials (around $15 million).
“Due to low precipitation levels and high temperatures, domestic tea production is expected to decline this year,” he added.
