Tea & Climate Change Collaborative

Tea in canisters

The Tea & Climate Change Collaborative is an interdisciplinary team of scientists working together to addresses critical knowledge gaps related to climate effects on tea quality and their corresponding socio-economic responses.

Tea is a fascinating study system as the most widely-consumed beverage in the world after water and as a quality-driven crop that has an extensive management history. Their primary study objective is to provide quantitative data on how and why tea quality is vulnerable to changing climate conditions and the resulting linkages to consumer purchasing decisions, markets, farmer livelihoods, ecological knowledge, and management practices.
