Cultivation of Organic Tea

Print

Keeping in view, the present day consumer taste and interest among health conscious people towards organic products, the Govt. of Uttarakhand decided to encourage organic tea cultivation in the state. To start with, the Uttarakhand Tea Development Board has converted 218 ha of plantation into organic tea in Ghorakhal (Nainital), Champawat (Champawat) and Nauti (Chamoli). The organic tea produced here has been evaluated by tea tasters in Kolkata. Recently, the director of Contemporary brokers (pvt. Ltd.) paid an official visit in the tea gardens and factories here and expressed interest over the tea produced and sought some quantity of teas at Kolkata auction through their catalogue on a regular basis.
The tea taster evaluated the tea produced here and found the quality comparable to good quality tea gardens of Darjeeling district.
