The first plucking of tea leaves has started in Ilam. The first plucking of tea leaves, also known as 'First Flush', is considered to be the highest quality. 

The plucking has started in the lower region. Tea is just beginning to grow in the upper regions. Tea plucking has started as soon as the barren tea has started to grow again. The tea factory of the district has also started preparations for processing. Some factories have even started production.

Thus, the business of the tea and factory workers who have been idle for some time has now increased exponentially. This year, the weather has also helped the tea farmers.

Even the tea farmers are happy because of the timely rains this year. Tea has not fully grown yet in the hilly areas of the district. Farmers have begun plucking tea leaves in the hot areas sooner as the price of First Flush tea is high despite low production.
