Predator Prey

Organic tea gardens attract many different types of insects and animals. Like this lizard sunning itself on the tea bushes and waiting for its prey. It is said that ladybirds are a good sign of a healthy garden. They efficiently take care of certain types of harmful spiders, while teas leaves attacked by green flies impart a highly sought after character in the teas.

It is important for predator prey bio-system to take root so that a healthy natural balance is maintained. Fortunately in Jun Chiyabari this is exactly what has happened because no pesticide has been used.
