International Journal of Tea Science

The GENESIS of this Journal may be traced back to October 1996 when the International Conference on Global Advances in Tea Science, held in Delhi identified the gaping chasm in the generation and dissemination of tea information to concerned users. The delegates recommended a refereed research journal, exclusive to tea, published by a registered society. The International Society of Tea Science (ISTS) was launched with the help of National Institute of Science, Technology & Development Studies (NISTADS). It was proposed that in due course of time the ISTS may catalyze other activities viz. help catalogue tea Germplasm and publish books, monographs and directories.
