A short tour round
an Assamese tea estate in November 2001. The tea bushes grow in orderly
lines, shaded by trees and intersected by dirt roads. Women pluck
tea, working at a moderately leisurely pace. A notice on a tree gives
directions as to how the tea should be planted and spaced. A tea manager
explains the process of picking the tip and two leaves.
