Sri Lanka's tea production fell 8.4 percent in May from a year earlier, the fourth straight month of lower output, state-run tea board data showed on Wednesday, and analysts attributed the decline to irregular rain. Sri Lanka's May tea output was 30.81 million kg compared with 33.65 million kg in the same month a year ago. Production in the first five months dropped 3.8 percent to 135.63 million kg from 140.92 million compared with the same period in 2011. [ full story ]
