argentine tea & coffee report.
Antonio Fernandez, president of casafentes, Argentina\'s largest tea producer and exporter, estimated in an interview that the output could be as high as 55,000 tons.
\"This record is attributed to very active markets and good weather, although El Nino caused initial problems and delayed the harvest a little.
\"In October, when the rainfall was too heavy, tea production began and fell by 1,000mm in the month.
This figure is more than half of the annual average in the province.
The weather and weather that followed made tea more abundant.
\"This season, tea growers use more fertilizer, extending the harvest time due to the demand for tea.
In the previous drought, prices paid to growers rose sharplystruckseason -from 5. 5[cents]and 6[cents], to 8[cents]or 9[cents]/kg. ofgreen leaf.
\"Not only has production increased, but exports have also increased --
About 50% in1996, the offshore price of tea exports to 564. 08 million tons is $44,491,153.
Fernández said, \"as stocks were also sold in previous years, 1997 figures have risen;
This can be repeated in 1998.
Since no new tea has been planted in Argentina for 15 years, tea production is expected to remain unchanged.
\"The existing plants are aging and the mechanical harvesting system is not the best;
Therefore, the growth and development of plants are affected.
So a lot of off-
Approximately 30% of the total, and the rest are considered as the main grade.
Argentina\'s new tea market opened in 1997-
One of them is Kenya, which imports 3,102 tons of tea due to harsh climatic conditions.
Fernandez noted that,K.
Argentina imports up to 9,188 tons of tea. The U. S.
Argentina\'s import of 29,132 tons continues to be the main market in Argentina.

According to Fernandez, there are about 40 tea factories and 25 tea exporters in Argentina.
The largest exporter of tea is Casa Fuentes, accounting for 30% of total exports.
Other important Packers or exporters include Las Marias, greensers, La Virginia, and camales.
The transportation cost of tea is very high both at home and abroad.
This year, due to severe flooding in northeastern Argentina, transport has become more complex, from where processed tea is transported by truck to Briis Hong Kong, 1,650 km south.
Here it is packaged for local consumption or shipped to 38 countries.
The only tea agency in Argentina that produces tea bags from seeds to tea bags in one place is Las Marias in Rome.
It is also the largest producer of tea.
Las Marias owns the navahasa altaza family, 4,000 hectares of tea, 6,000 yerba mate, 2,500 forest.
Las Marias sells local tea in the name of Taragui, and recently launched the Taragui International box with 25 laminated envelopes per box with five different specialty teas.

Drinking Argentinian tea in tea bags prefers their tea, and the color is more important than the flavor and taste.
Tea takes the third place for coffee and tea\'s yerba matelike beverage.
It is estimated that Argentina produces 250,000 tons of yerba mate per year-
Most of them are for the domestic market.
The head of Adolfo navajazaras Marias confirmed this comment in a recent report by the Argentine Ministry of Agriculture, which states that \"yerba mate is overproducing and cannot be consumed internally, international markets must therefore be found.
It is estimated that coffee consumption in Argentina is about 40,000 tons per year.
In 1997, 43,373 tons were imported, of which 39,600 tons were supplied by Brazil.
Like tea, Argentinian tastes of coffee are relatively complex.
Traditionally, they drink drunk coffee baked with sugar and other sweet ingredients, which account for 80% of the market and are called \"cafetorrado \".
However, the situation is changing, and recently the first specialty coffee shop opened in the Argentine capital, Buenos.
For Argentines, going out for coffee is a way of life.
