And The Winner Is…
China is now officially the largest tea producing country, a title that used to belong to India.
Interestingly, this is the first time that China has actually reported production figures, so they were probably #1 all along, except they kept it a secret!
As far as global tea exports go, India is now #4, preceded by China (#3), Sri Lanka (#2) and Kenya (#1).
India, dubiously, is also the highest cost producer of tea in the world.
