Tea plantations

Tea plantations and estates can be huge farms with thousands and thousands of tea plants covering hundreds of acres of land; or they can be tiny gardens or smallholdings that are home to just a hundred or so plants.
In India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Malaysia, and most East African tea countries, the workers live on the estates where there are villages, community centres,  places of worship, shops, crèches, primary schools, clinics and hospitals. In China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Japan, for example, the tea gardens are usually privately owned or run by cooperatives.
