v Tea is the dried leaves of the evergreen tea plant, which grows in the tropics, mostly at an altitude of between 1000 and 2000m. Tea plants can grow 9m tall, but they are pruned to 3m on tea plantations. Workers called tea pluckers pick leaves from mature tea plants by hand. The leaves are then taken to a nearby factory to be dried, crushed and treated.
