The 2021 harvest had begun prematurely as the temperatures started rising in February. The regions where the climate is comparatively warmer had an early harvest this year and brought out their First Flush teas by the end of April already. However, the tea farmers in colder climate and mountainous areas suffered frost damage on the night of April 10, which set the growth of the tea bushes back by 2 to 3 weeks. They unfortunately sat idle until the later half of May before starting the harvest. 2021 marked one of the greatest frost damages suffered nationwide in the past 10-20 years.
