Woman harvesting tea leaves in a tea plantation (India)

The women have a stick that they use to measure the height of the tea bushes. Only leaves and buds that are above the height of the stick can be picked-up.

They put the harvested tea leaves in a bag on their back, that they hold with straps over their head.
