Tkibuli Mountain Tea will arrange a tea processing plant, tasting center and a 4-room hotel with a total investment of USD 1.2 million.

According to Levan Tskipurishvili, construction of a processing plant, a tea testing center and a small hotel in Tkibuli will be completed in May and 15 people will be employed on the spot. Up to 50 locals will be employed seasonally during the tea picking.

"We will offer visitors to taste different types of tea at the Tea Culture Center," said Levan Tskipurishvili.

“Construction is already started - a tea factory will be built, there will be a place where visitors will be able to taste tea. We will introduce the tea culture to the guests. There will also be a small, 4-room hotel on site for those who wish to stay, although we plan to build a relatively large hotel for tourists. It should be noted that Tkibuli is one of the unique places for tea culture, the climate and other characteristics make our tea competing on the market. We are building the enterprise on the tea plantation,” Levan Tskipurishvili told bm.ge.

According to the owner of Tkibuli Mountain Tea, the tea factory will be able to process 100 tons of tea per year, but since it owns only 25 hectares of tea plantations, it thinks that it will process 8-10 tons of tea this year.

Tkibuli Mountain Tea Ltd was founded in 2017. Currently, 51% of the company is owned by Iuri Nozadze and 49% by Levan Tskipurishvili.
