Tea producing countries

Tea remains the second most consumed drink in the world, after water. Tea is mainly grown in Asia, Africa, around the Black and Caspian Seas and South America. The four biggest tea-producing countries are China, India, Kenya and Sri Lanka. Together they represent about 75% of the world production. Until the end of the 19th century, production was concentrated in Asia. However, the tea fever has now gripped other regions such as Africa and South America, which started cultivating their own tea in the face of rising global demand. As a result, it is now grown in about 40 countries.
