Where can one find processing cost of tea?

Hi, I recently discovered Steepster and I am fascinated by the information shared on the site. I have been searching for processing costs of tea but it seems to be a closely guarded secret. Does anyone know where one can find a site where one can compare the processing costs say between China and India?

What do you mean by “processing costs”?

I don’t think it’s secretive exactly. But I would imagine that in different regions and for different types of tea (and between different producers) costs vary quite a bit. And, if I’m understanding the question correctly, in the case of small producers, it may be hard to calculate something like this at all.

Other than equipment, most of the “processing costs” I can think of are the cost of labor.
