Altitude & Quality
The tea plant grows at altitudes from near sea-level, to 6000 feet and above. The flavour, taste , and colour of the brewed beverage varies significantly with the altitude at which the plant is grown . Teas grown at lower altitudes brew a darker coloured beverage , whereas teas grown at higher altitudes – about 3000 feet and above – brew a bright, lighter coloured beverage with an abundance of flavour , delicious taste and rich quality. The higher the altitude of growth, the more pronounced are these finer qualities in tea.
