Factors that Influence Quality
Although tea is cultivated in many regions of the world and originates from the same plant species , six major factors interact naturally with one another in combination to influence the final quality of the tea:
1. Strain of the tea plant.
2. Soil composition
3. Extent of sunshine and air temperature
4. Extent of humidity in the air
5. Altitude at which it is grown and produced
6. Type of manufacture, processing and grading
