1.Is AGOA only for textiles?  I am interested in exporting Tea to the USA.

Answer:

AGOA is a U.S. legislation that offers African producers the opportunity to export various types of goods, including apparel, to the U.S. without paying import duties hence not for textile only; and

Yes, tea is eligible for export duty free under GSP and the information is available at this link https://hts.usitc.gov/?query=0902
