30 years ago, Georgia was one of the main tea producing regions in the world. At peak, the tea industry employed more than 150 000 people and tea fields covered tens of thousands of hectares. Today, hardly anyone knows Georgian tea even though there are great conditions for producing high quality tea. The industry collapsed almost completely in just 5 short years in early 1990-s. Huge factories closed, whole regions lost their employment and plantations were overgrown with weed. We decided to do something about it and changed our corporate careers to rubber boots to bring the tea industry in Georgia back to life!
We are the Renegade Tea Farmers. The story of Georgian tea and its surreal collapse intrigued us that much that we decided to leave our successful jobs as leaders and specialists and give our part in saving the Georgian tea industry.
