Staff Reporter
SHILLONG, April 26: Be it the aroma, richness in quality or the organic status – Meghalaya tea has it all and the state government is all out to explore the tea growing potential of the state to its maximum with an added bonus of promoting tea tourism.
It was a visit in 1974 by Tea Board of India and scientists from Tea Research Association that marked the beginnings of organized tea cultivation in the state. Tea nurseries were established from 1977 onwards, and suitable varieties well adapted to the state’s soils, temperatures and rainfall were brought in from neighbouring Assam, and also from Darjeeling. The seedlings were subsequently transplanted to experimental gardens at Umsning (in Ri Bhoi District), Tebronggre (in the West Garo Hills) and also to Riangdo (in West Khasi Hills) in 1978.
