Manufacturing Process of Tea Packing
The tea is gathered from the tea estate and then transported to the factoring for withering. Based on the type, different leaves are used in tea formation.
The freshly collected leaves contain moisture and a high amount of water. To dry the leaves thoroughly, leaves are spread in large area. Open-air is used to dry the leaves rather than sun exposure. Approximately 19 hours are required for the complete drying of leaves. This whole process is known as withering. In this process, oxygen is add into the active leave ingredients like tannins that turn the leave color from green to copper.
Different methods are used for the crushing of leaves. The leaves can either crush manually or use rotatory mechanisms in machines. The leaves are routed to the point where they become small pieces fully covered with juice.
The tea leaves get their typical black color during this process. The drying process is important because it’s the point where flavor and juices should remain preserved while drying. Usually, high temperature is used in the drying process. It takes almost a full day for the processing of leaves to dry.
After drying, the leaves enter the mill room for fine chopping. In milling, leaves achieve the final shape and size we use at home. The leaves are chopped into varied sizes based on the tea type using a mechanical sieve.
The prepared tea is mixed with the tea leaves for the final texture and flavor. The concentration of both ingredients is set using weight. Leaves and tea are blended in hoppers using dose-up wheels. After mixing, the tea gets read for the packaging.
