Tea is the most widely consumed beverage in the world. The market for Tea is growing rapidly. Rising consumer awareness about the health hazards of carbonated drinks is leading to a shift towards Teas of all types. Another major driver is the increasing awareness by consumers that certain type of Tea can both prevent and cure various diseases. Aging populations in Japan, Europe and the US also are increasing demand for Tea because of its anti-ageing properties.

As a result of these trends, Tea is now found everywhere including supermarkets, health and natural foods stores, drug stores, mass merchandisers and Tea rooms, among others. New Tea brands and products are appearing weekly. And pharmaceutical products based on Tea are under development.

The global market for Tea is very large and estimated at USD17.6 billion in 2013, in terms of production value. While the Black/Other Teas segment is growing modestly (3.4% annually), production of Green tea is growing rapidly (11% CAGR) and Herbal Teas are growing exponentially (>15% CAGR).
