Tea production is highly dependent on the geographical and climatic conditions of the environment where the plants are grown and on the crisis of climate change from time to time. Therefore, an analysis is needed to determine the impact of climatic conditions on the tea production industry, especially in Indonesia. Precipitation and temperature are the contributing factors to the productivity of tea. This phenomenon can be understood through analysis and projection of climate. This analysis can be utilized for mitigation and adaptation to applied climate in Indonesia's agriculture sector, especially in the industrial production of tea. By comparing the analysis of climate for tea in the past 1991 – 2020 period and the projection of future climate in the period 2051 – 2070, this study explains climate analysis to the production of tea, especially in Gunung Mas and Java Island, Indonesia. The result shows that climate analysis in the past in period 1991 – 2020, obtained existence influence and trend change to bulk available rain and temperature for the region Gunung Mas and its surroundings. Projection suitability land industry plant tea based on scenario future climate seen the impact with decrease suitable area as land growth plant tea. Climate scenarios RCP 4.5 and RCP 8.5 for 2070 show the influence of climate impact on the suitability of the tea plantation land industry.
