Georgian Tea Season

Adjara is known not just for its superb citrus fruits but also for tea production. Vast tea plantations become crowded in May when local residents, mostly women, hand-pick the leaves. It's a hard and time consuming labour. So Georgian tea is produced in rather small quantities. About 3000 tonnes of black and green tea is being produced here anually.
