Photographer's Note

Now the workers are picking the tea leaves, after a short night in the compound you saw previously.

The tea is picked by hand with modified garden clippers. They looked like ordinary gardener scissors with plastic containers attached to it, that were probably cut from a plastic jug.

This device was to allow them to cut and collect the leaves in a quick motion over their head and fall inside the basket they wear on the back.

A pains taking work that few of us would be willing to do.

The tea bushes we see are many years old, and can produce for almost one hundred years.
