Hi Guys, As an English newcomer to the group I have been surprised to
see the interest in Tea that seems to be developing in the USA.
I grew up only 2 miles from the American Air force base at Burtonwood
with 35,000 American servicemen & 99% of them only drank coffee.
We of course all drink tea (Even the people who prefer coffee will drink tea).
I was wondering what proportion of Americans do drink tea & if this number
is growing these days.
While almost the whole world drinks tea, U.S.A goes on with the third major importer of tea. More than half of the population in the United States drinks tea every day. South and Northeast have the highest levels of tea drinkers on a regional basis. Tea forms a major component of all our lives because it carries many unique properties and ingredients with it, which you can't get anywhere else. While different cultures make tea in their own way, many people are now awakening to the USA phenomenon. This green tea has the flavors of the USA beverages and it is better to use loose leaf green tea.
