Mixed with poppy, maybe? :mrgreen:

I know there has been much effort to shift illegal crop lands to legal crops, but a lot of pressure to remain poppy growers. I had not heard of tea.

I will be anxious to hear of any success stories.

Tea wasn't the most memorable experience for me when I was there. :wink:
I know they grow tea in Pakistan so I would think that they could grow it there.
