🌿 Sri Lanka is a main country that exports tea to Russia and Sri Lanka’s share of the tea market in Russia is said to be about 23%. The amount of tea exported to Russia from Sri Lanka during the first 10 months of this year is 141300 tons and it earned Sri Lanka US$ 436 million.

🌿 Reuters quoting Rosselkhoznadzor, Russia’s agricultural safety watchdog states Russia will place temporary restrictions on imports of all agricultural products from Sri Lanka, including tea, from 18th December.

🌿 The higher place Sri Lanka’s enjoyed as a finest tea producer has been spoilt due to the policies of rulers that allowed import of substandard tea to be blended here.
