ZHONETI VILLAGE

Zhoneti village tea plantation

This village, like many others in Western Georgia, was filled with tea plantations during the Soviet times. Zhoneti has one big exception though - many of the plantations are still there and well taken care of.

Even though the village is surrounded by stone mines that make this village look almost like a desert from the distance, it holds a great oasis of tea gardens and a home for lovely people.
