Join us as we explore the impact of climate change on tea

About this event

Your morning cup of tea may never test the same again if global heating increases and the climate crises intensifies. The effects of climate change will impact how and where tea can be grown. This has serious implications for the people who depend on tea for a living. Small-scale farmers are particularly vulnerable.

Tea production is threatened by a range of climate driven stresses including rising temperatures, droughts, frosts, shifting and unpredictable weather patterns as well as changing incidences of pests and diseases.

Deforestation is another major environmental threat, which exacerbates the effects of climate change and has a range of negative impacts on tea communities.

In this session, we’ll discuss the impact of climate change on tea in the global context.
