Climate brews trouble for Bangladesh tea

Growers in South Asian nation say rising temperatures are affecting the quality of the drink.

    Tea plantations and estates in Bangladesh provide the leaves for many of the world's famous brands, but growers say rising temperatures are affecting the quality of the drink.

    Hundreds of thousands of people depend on the tea sector, but if climate change is responsible for the hotter weather being experienced now, it is just a matter of time before these plantations perhaps disappear altogether.
