ISLAMABAD: China has a big role to play in promoting Pakistan’s tea industry, as potential suitable sites and land for tea cultivation is located alongside the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), says a report published by Gwadar Pro, quoting experts.

Pakistan has identified 64,000 hectares of area as suitable for tea cultivation along the CPEC’s route, according to Dr. Abdul Waheed, Director of the National Tea and High Value Crops Research Institute (NTHRI).

However, tea is currently cultivated on around 200 acres of land only. The area of Shinkiari in Manshra alone produces seven to eight tons of tea annually.“If we grow tea on 64,000 hectares of land, Pakistan will not only be self-sufficient in tea but will also export tea products to other countries,” said Dr. Abdul Waheed.

Pakistan imports $500 million worth of tea. AJK, Swat, Mansehra are ideal for tea cultivation.

Black wall nuts, cheshnut, figs, coffee....
We can take down many nations single handedly.... All we need more education on this topic and definitely processing facilities to farmers.

Cool and wet.....tea grows best on hill slopes with abundant rain. In tropical countries it grows on higher elevations where its cooler.

We also need to work on land reclamation in Balochistan, Sindh and Punjab. Massive swats of land have been turned uncultivable due to Indian Water Terrorism. Nonetheless, we get enough water in the other 3 rivers to reclaim them. We aren't making any dams so we might as well divert the water and put it to some good use instead of letting it sink in the sea
