Doing my spring cleaning I discovered that I had in my cupboard 17 blends of tea; I would have bet to have more than 10, but 17 is quite a number!
That’s make me start thinking about how much tea people consume in the world; so, I did my research and fascinating and surprising data came out.
I would have never imagine that!
Well, I guess it’s true since it is one major producer.
I would have bet Uk to be first in tea consumption… This is the evidence that preconception are not right for most of the times!
What I found really surprising is that Japan and China are respectively only at the 8th and 14th place, with 900 gr. and 600 gr.!!!! This really astonish me, since China and Japan have both a great tradion in tea drinking with their own rituals.
What about Italy?
I only guess that they haven’t counted me in this survey!!!
I made few counts and resulted that I drink in a year …. 2,9 kg of tea!!!!
4 cups a day ( not really, I usually drink 5 or 6 , but I decided not to exagerate), 2 mg of tea per cup, 365 day in a year…. !!!!
What about you? 🙂
Have a good brew and let me know! 😉
