Tea Consumption Worldwide

Tea Consumption Worldwide

According to the 2018 Global Dubai Tea Forum, humans drink 1.5 trillion litres of non-alcohol beverages (excluding tap water) per year. If predictions are correct that number should reach 1.8 trillion during 2021. On average, an individual drinks between 1.5–2 litres of liquids per day, of which 20% is from foods. People have about 48 beverage occasions per week and Tea accounts for almost 10 of these. Coffee accounts for 3.9 occasions; carbonated soda’s 4.6 occasions. Juices worldwide account for 3.5, dairy – 3.2, bulk water – 3.7 and individually packaged water has a 1.3 share.

Annual Tea consumption per year was at 70 billion gallons (266 billion litres), in 2018. This is way ahead in the world’s prepared beverage market; including coffee, milk, juices, carbonated drinks and sports drinks. The world’s leading beverage is packaged water and tea comes in at second place. It has a larger consumer base and is growing faster than coffee. This is in part due to the increasing popularity of artisan teas and the growing awareness of teas for wellbeing.
