The anti-oxidants present in tea prevent cancer and consuming tea in a limited amount improves our metabolic rate and cardio-vascular activity etc. In the tea gardens, women play a very important role. Most of the operations involved in tea cultivation are practically done by women who have acquired the skill at coordinating their nimble fingers through many years of experience. As women’s role in tea gardens directly affect the productivity and they also benefited from the economy so women workers really help to eliminate hunger and malnutrition starting from their household level.
