Indian Tea Association

The Indian Tea Association is a trade association of Indian tea producers. The head office is in Kolkata (Calcutta).


The association was founded in 1881 to protect the interests of tea planters in British India and to promote the consumption of Indian tea.[1] It had offices in London and in India.[1] It also laid down rules for the recruitment of labour for the plantations and in the early twentieth century attempted to raise the standards of treatment of labourers.[2]
