The ‘banjhi’ or dormancy cycle in free-growing tea trees appears to be the result of an endogenous rhythm. However, in harvested tea apical dominance causes dormant shoots to be produced under conditions favourable to growth, and the synchronized flushing cycle causes periods of apical shoot (active terminal bud) and secondary shoot (dormant terminal bud) production.
