This significant beverage is classed according to the region of genesis namely China, India, Kenya, and Sri Lanka, the big players in today’s tea market (find more details on these regions below).

A glance at the largest regions who produce this occult beverage

1.         CHINA

Chinese tea has played an eminent role in its history, building relationships with foreign cultures all around the world without a doubt. They confirm this by being the number one producer who generates 35 percent in terms of volume of the world’s tea. For the Chinese, this is a luxury product along with their other turnouts Porcelain and Silk and they proudly pronounce tea as their national drink.

Along with the six kinds of tea (Green, Dark, Oolong, Black, White, and Yellow), China produces 2.27 million tons of tea, this is huge when compared with other major producers on this planet. Few main provinces that produce tea in China are Sichuan, Guizhou, Yunnan, Zhejiang, and Hubei and the industry is so important for these provinces to carry out their state master plan.

2.         INDIA 

“CHAI” is the entire Indians call Tea as……. the most consumed or rather diurnal beverage of all the Indians without an argument.

The second-largest producers of Tea in the world are India, they proudly share 21 percent in terms of volume of the world’s tea market. Apart from this, 70 percent of their million or so metric tons production is consumed by its own people which is so established in the fabric of India’s culture. The four conventional types of tea produced here are Black Tea, Green Tea, Oolong

Tea and Instant Tea come from their three main subcontinental terrains Assam, Darjeeling, and Nilgiri. Russia being the Largest Importer of India’s tea along with other three giants USA, UAE, and the UK for sure a tonic for the Indian economy.

3.         KENYA

Kenyan Tea has won the price in the international arena for its savor and it is a popular beverage among Kenyans which

Is served in all their cafés and restaurants. Kenya is holding third place in producing tea today on the planet, sharing 8 percent in terms of volume. Tea is supposed to be their major cash crop which generates significant foreign exchange to the country to boost their economy with its quality grades Black, Green, Yellow and White Teas.

Out of several districts where tea is produced in Kenya, I pick Kericho, Bomet, Nandi, Kiambu, and Thika as the best regions since the crops enjoy providing better yield due to its favorable weather pattern. I am sure most people hardly even realize Kenya grows tea, the fact is they grew tea and they grew tea to come to this position from 9th or 10th place from as far as 1962 for recognition.

4.         SRI LANKA

Then “Ceylon” and today Sri Lanka also called “Pearl of the Indian Ocean” is a tiny island that is best known for its culture and nature. Yes, it is tiny but not tiny when it comes to Tea and Tea production in its warmth traditional manner. Rolls Royce is for cars, Rolex is for watches likewise, Ceylon is for Tea simply confirms by its symbol of quality, guarding the luxuriousness with a lot of commitments.

There was a time when Sri Lanka was holding the second spot in terms of production volume but was gradually pushed to fourth place due to the demanding billions and the civil war which ended in the recent past. Currently they are sharing 7 percent in the world market, which disturbs Sri Lanka’s one of their major source of economy.

The devotion and courage to serve the international forum with their best aroma in Tea and uninterrupted logistics should boost Sri Lanka’s foreign exchange back again. The main regions where Tea plantation takes place are in the country’s central highland which favours providing high-quality tea with different aromas while in low elevation tea has a top-class astringent inheritance.

The four main types of tea available on this Island are White Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea, and Black Tea and Sri Lankans commonly use the

 Black Tea in their daily lifestyle. Once the “Ceylon Tea” hits your taste bud the temptation to sip another cup will keep oozing.
