Tea plantation started in Sylhet in 1856.
Sylhet has gas fields. You can see gas is coming out from under ground.
TTea Gardens in Bangladesh
The area around Sylhet is traditional tea growing area. The picturesque Surma valley is covered with terraces of tea gardens and lush green tropical forests.
Srimangal is known as the tea capital of Bangladesh and for miles around one can see the green carpet of tea gardens on the hill slopes.
The area has over 150 tea gardens including three of the largest tea gardens in the world both in area and production. Nearly 300,000 workers are employed on the tea estates of which over 75% are women.
Employers prefer to engage women for plucking tea leaves since they do a better job and are paid less than the men.
