Drought, heatwaves affect tea plantations in E China

The prolonged drought and the persisting heatwaves have affected tea production in Zhejiang, one of the country's major tea plantation areas. In the plantation area of Longjing tea near the West Lake in Hangzhou, swathes of tea trees have withered because of drought, which will have a drastic impact on the output of the popular tea.
