Keywords: Camellia sinensis (L) O. Kuntze | morphology | tea germplasm | clone.

An attempt was made to study several parametric characteristics of stems and leaves of six selected and one standard clones of Bangladesh tea in order to identify and select superior clone in tea. Out of ten morphological characters, two characters of stem (stem circumference and height of the first branching position), five characters of 5thleaf (leaf length, leaf breadth, leaf length/breadth ration, leaf size and leaf angle in degree) and three characters of pluckable shoots (internodal length, shoot density and yield of green leaf as well as made tea per hector) were considered qualitatively and quantitatively following IPGRI’s guidelines with some minor adjustment and analyzed statistically. It was noticed that all clones were significantly different in respect of stem circumference, leaf length, leaf breadth, leaf length/breadth ratio, leaf size, leaf angle, internodal length of fish leaf to mother leaf, shoot density and yield. Considering different morphological and yield character MZ/39 was found most suitable followed by B2 × T1 and SDL/1 for commercial cultivation in Bangladesh.
