Darjeeling tea production in 2023 is estimated to be the lowest in over 50 years, with an expected decline to 6.1-6.3 million kg. This is a decrease of at least 9% compared to the previous year. The decline in production is attributed to factors such as the closure of 10 gardens in Darjeeling and a shortage of workers affecting tea plucking. Industry players also noted a decline in average price realisation during auctions, although this may not accurately reflect producers’ earnings.
