synthesis is blocked, and decomposition is intensified, resulting in a rise in amino acids. However, with the persistence of drought, once the
physiological use of tea shrub is severely damaged, the components such as
amino acid, protein, caffeine and water infusion all reduction,” he said.

“The tea tree is a plant which likes humidity and fears waterlogging,” he said. “Tea needs annual precipitation of more than 1,000 millimeters, and monthly precipitation throughout the development period is greater than 100 mm. If the precipitation for several consecutive months is less than 50 mm, the tea production could be considered drought,” explained Hongbo.
