Assam Tea Production In 1850


Came across this wonderful old engraving, from Wikipedia:

This engraving shows the different stages in the process of making tea. Tea bushes are carefully pruned and plucked to maintain the correct density, encouraging new leaf-bearing shoots. Here you can see the two drying stages of the process, drying stops the fermentation process and removes the last moisture so the tea will not spoil during transit.

You’ll have to go to Wikipedia to see it.
