Post COVID-19 lockdown: Nepali tea gets higher price in Indian market

Kathmandu/New Delhi: Post COVID-19 lockdown situation, the price of Nepali tea leaves has increased in the Indian market.

The demand is supposed to have increased after a boom in demand and consumption of the beverage.

 With a fall in tea production in West Bengal, one of the largest in India, due to rainfall and lockdown, Nepali tea producers are now bridging the gap to fulfill the demand in India, reports ANI.

"In post lockdown, our tea grain and leaves are getting a better price. In the last three months, we are exporting tea grains and leaves in large amounts, in comparison to other times. The price of our products has also increased," a proprietor of Jagdamba Tea Processing, Bishnu Neupane, told ANI.
