Tea grows all around the world in various geographic and climatic zones, nations and cultures. The tea plant can’t grow too far from the equator though, perfect growth is guaranteed between 43° north and 30° south. China and India each produce about one third of the world’s harvest, followed by Kenya and Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Many countries cultivate tea; often though in small quantities that can only be used for the country’s own requirements. To name a few: Argentina, Brasil, Turkey, Korea, Thailand, Australia and surprisingly Corsica, Mexico, the USA and Cornwall.
