Iran's Tea Production Up 60%

Close to 140,000 tons of fresh tea leaves have been purchased from local farmers by the government since the beginning of the harvest season five months ago, says the head of Iran Tea Organization, Mohammad Vali Rouzbehan.
“The harvest season has come to an end and this year (started March 20) production shows a 60% rise compared with last year,” he was quoted as saying by ISNA.
Tea is cultivated in Iran’s northern provinces of Gilan and Mazandaran where 50,000 families earn their living from tea farming in 25,000 hectares of fields.
The government has a guaranteed purchase system in place for many crops, including tea, to build up its strategic reserves and control prices in the domestic market.
