    Tea farmers in Sri Lanka are struggling to recover from last month's floods in the south of the country, in which hundreds of tonnes of the crop were destroyed by heavy rains and mudslides.

    People working in the industry say adverse weather has more effect on prices than supply and demand.

    Al Jazeera’s Minelle Fernandez reports from Akuressa, Sri Lanka.
