Process of Cultivation: At first the seeds are sown in nurseries. After one month the seedlings are transplanted in the tea gardens in rows at some intervals. In their wild state they generally grow to a height of ten or twelve feet. But they are not allowed to grow so high in the gardens. After a certain stage in their growth the twigs of the plants are pruned and the buds are nipped up so that they cannot reach to a height or more than three feet or so. Generally when the plants are about four years old, the leaves are collected for the first time.
Processing: After gathering the leaves and buds they are rolled by machine and dried in a cauldron over a burning fire. This time the color of the tea is gradually changed from brown to black because of the heat and the subsequent exposure to air. After this process, tea is ready for sale and consumption.
