The study describes various aspects of the quantitative features of Indian tea industry based on secondary data from Tea Statistics for different years as published by the Tea Board of India, and primary survey in major tea producing regions of South and North India, namely in West Bengal, Assam and Tamil Nadu. The paper is organized in the following way: first part gives an overview of the quantitative study of Indian tea industry at national and inter-national levels based on predictions of observed patterns for selected variables. The variables are critical for the growth of tea industry in India. The second part of the study discusses the basic findings from field survey of big growers, small growers and bought-leaf factories from North and South Indian tea producing regions. Several of the predictions and decompositions obtained in this study are both novel and robust and directly amenable to policy instruments.
