There are many tea estates in the northeastern state of Tripura and as per the history, the tea plantations were started from 1916. Tripura is the 5th largest tea producing state in the country among the 16 tea producing states in India. In fact, Tripura has categorized as a traditional tea-growing state with about 60 Tea Estates, 21 tea processing factories and 3,000 small tea growers, producing about 7.5 million kg of tea annually. One of the nearest tea estates from Agartala the capital city of the state of Tripura is a Durgabari tea estate which is almost 11 kilometres away and approximately half an hour drive. After rubber plantation in Tripura tea is the second-largest organized industry in the state. The tea cultivation in the state started in the first quarter of the twentieth century. Early the Indian enterprise started the cultivation of tea in Tripura unlike in other parts of the country where British planters had taken the lead. Thus, in the first quarter of the twentieth-century tea cultivation started in Tripura owing to the industrious efforts of some Indian entrepreneurs, with the active encouragement of the state, as opposed to the other places in the country, where it was mainly propagated by European planters. The state receives an annual rainfall of about 2100 mm uniformly distributed throughout the year and the temperature varies from 10 degrees Celsius to 35 degrees Celsius. The soil of the state is generally fertile. Thus, the agro-climatic condition of the state is suitable for tea cultivation. Tripura produced mainly CTC tea with a small amount of green tea being also produced. The nearest auction centre is Guwahati in Assam.
