Videos of Nilgiri, India tea production

This site has some good videos of tea production in the Nilgiri region of India.
I especially liked the first ones of the estate and the tea pluckers. I was also pleased to see how clean it is inside the production facility!

Oh, no, really? I guess I didn't see that part. I was watching on the sly at work. :wink: But at least they wipe their feet when they go inside!

Fascinating! What do you suppose the cleaning process after firing does?
