America Is Slowly but Surely Becoming a Nation of Tea Drinkers

Nearly 80-percent of U.S. families have tea within their kitchens, and over half of the US population drink tea on a regular basis.


Fairhope, AL -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2015 -- The U.S. tea market has quadrupled in the past twenty-plus years—from simply below $2 million in 1990 to just over $10 million previous year, based on the statistics provided by the "U.S. Tea Association". Demand for this herbal drink has been growing at a good clip for many years. By volume, Americans today consume nearly 20% more of this natural drink than they did in 2000, based on Euromonitor's market research.

Consequently, tea imports are soaring—they've grown by approximately 40% in the last 10 years, almost 70% over the last 20 years, and much more than 700 percentage during the last 5 decades, based on information from the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture).

America's preferred tea is the black and Green tea that accounts for over 50% of tea consumed in the United States. Herbal teas and fruit, which accounts for more than 25% of U.S. tea intake, is second on the checklist. But neither has succeeded to develop in the current years—herbal loose leaf tea and fruits consumption has increased by 7% within the U.S. since 2000, whereas black tea consumption has dropped by almost 2.5% within the same interval.

Simultaneously, coffee consumption has stayed pretty flat since the 70s, recommending that tea may be swapping coffee in certain homes. However the more existing reason behind tea's climb is probably the awareness that consuming tea will work for one's health. Teas like rooibos, Green, Oolong, chamomile in particular has been connected to numerous health benefits.
