The tea tree can reach a height of 1 to 2.5 m (maximum height 30 m). This plant is cultivated for its foliage (the bud and the two leaves). It is rare to see tea bushes with their white flower on the plantations as the repeated harvesting of buds and young leaves inhibits the flower growth. The tea tree grows well in warm and humid climate. Temperature, rainfall, shadow, light, quality of the soil, altitude and gradient, influence the quality of tea.
The harvesting is done manually or mechanized; the manual method by hand can guarantee the high quality teas (PREMIUM), chased by top world consumers. From the harvesting to the cup, the tea leaves go through the following processes: withering, rolling, riddling, oxidation, firing and sorting.
