In the region in the west of Georgia, tourists can get acquainted with the history and peculiarities of Georgian tea.
A new tourist project “Guria’s Tea Route” starts in Georgia, which provides for the development of agro-tourism in the country, the mayor’s office of Ozurgeti said.
Visitors will be shown tea plantations in Georgia, as well as acquaint them with the process of production and consumption of natural Georgian tea.
The project is supported by the Ozurgeti City Hall. The project implementation process involved the Ministry of Agriculture, the National Tourism Administration and the Elkana Association, which will make the project implementation process more productive.
Georgian natural tea is popular among both Georgian and foreign consumers, especially among people from the countries of the former Soviet Union.
The tea industry in Georgia began to experience a recession after the collapse of the USSR, as Georgia lost its sales markets. Now the country hopes to return to the local product its former glory by attracting investment.
