... high grade Darjeeling Tea sold solely to Harrods in London. Tea pluckers earn the equivalent of a dollar a day yet produce some of the most expensive tea sold anywhere in the world. The workers carry large wicker baskets that strap across their foreheads and scale the steep tea plantations for eight hours a day, six days a week.
