The Tea market has grown

The Tea market has grown from a $1.8 billion industry in 1990 to $6.5 billion last year, according to the Tea Association of the USA.

Black tea has given way to or at least been been joined by red, white, green and what seams like a million herbal blends. And they come in the traditional bags, large conical sacks, perforated foil tubes, loose leaves and more. In addition to hot tea, cold bottled tea drinks are growing in popularity and account for the majority of tea consumed in the United States.
