India's 2013 tea output jumps as small growers pluck more

MUMBAI, Feb 3 (Reuters) - India’s tea production in 2013 rose by 6.5 percent from a year earlier to a record 1,200 million kg, the Indian Tea Association said in a statement, as small growers in the northern-eastern part of the country plucked more leaves.

The world’s second biggest tea producer harvested 1,126 million kg in the 2012 calendar year.
