Frost is rather a thorn in the side of most tea growers, but for this speciaity from Southern India, this is precisely what is needed. As early as the end of November, the tea bushes are pruned slightly so that the freshly sprouted shoots can be processed in January. When a light frost sets in during the first weeks of the new year, the conditions are ideal and the Frost Tea can herald the first harvest of the year.
