The Director of Iran's Center of Tea Processing Abdo Alsamad Qaravi announced here Saturday that the Center has received some requests from European countries to export the tea extract.


Qaravi said that the quality of Iranian tea is much better than those from India, and that "the first Iranian tea processing factory" aims to help tea industry to see its glorious days.


He said that changing people's taste from drinking Iranian tea to foreign made ones can be attributed to inappropriate processing of tea leaves, so that dried tea produced in the present tea processing factories is not of high quality,.
