With the passage of the Korea Tea Act in 2014, Korea has a new opportunity to reinvigorate the Korean tea industry. Major tea producing countries, such as India, Sri Lanka and Kenya, have established national institutions, tea boards to provide development leadership and oversights for the tea industry. This study examines the concepts and functions of the tea boards in India, Sri Lanka and Kenya. The findings are expected to provide insights and help guide the implementation of the Korean Tea Act. This study found that these countries have a long history of the tea industry starting in the 1830s. Tea boards were established in India in 1954, in Sri Lanka in 1976 replacing the Tea Propaganda Board of 1932 and in Kenya in 1950. The tea board members represent key areas of the tea industry, such as tea plantations, factories, workers, traders, exporters, government officials, and consumers. The tea board contributes to the development of the tea industry using the funds generated from a tax on tea production and exports, and regulates the tea industry through registration and licenses. The board promotes tea through overseas offices and generates tea industry statistics. This study proposes the establishment of a Korean tea board to help implement the Korea Tea Act.
