    Same typical alarmist tripe.

    From the article, here’s the real problem,

    “A pest called the tea mosquito bug multiplies in damp and cloudy weather and attacks fresh shoots of the tea bush, preventing the plant’s regeneration,” Kakaty said.

    Yeah an extra 0.7DegC will do that to tea. Nth Eastern India has enjoyed centuries of temperatures that never varied by more than 0.1DegC. It never rained heavy, never had frosts or droughts. It was the perfect tea nirvana until man came along with his suv
