This RIRDC publication examines the integration of important pre and postharvest management factors, such as propagation, shading, nutrition, and postharvest storage techniques to produce high quality green tea.

The research developed methods for quantifying green tea quality which were applied to a series of pre and postharvest trials.Green tea has been identified as a potential new crop in Australia with significant economic benefits. Green tea is produced from the leaf of Camellia sinensis var sinensis, which grows well in many parts of Australia. Data is provided to support the development of out-of-season export of high quality green tea to Japan.
