Are you one of those who like to sit down with a cup of lovely Darjeeling? Then you might want to read this.
The region of Darjeeling have been growing some of the finest teas in the world for about 150 years but since 2012 there has been more or less drought and the yields are less now compared to 2000-2009 with only 8700 metric tons a year in avarege, rather then 10 000 metric tons.
The weakened tea plants are more vulnerable to pest too, so the tea farmers and tea workers are battling a two front battle.
This year the hope of a better year seems slim but some are still hopefull for a better yeald in the future
