Tea in the USA.

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.

Hi, Dave. I grew up in the military (my formative years were spent at the now defunct RAF Chicksands, near Bedford). In addition, my husband is retired from the Air Force, my older son is in the Air Force, my brother is in the U.S. Coast Guard, my father-in-law is an Air Force retiree, and my ex-husband was in the Navy. Coffee is, perhaps, the number one staple of the military; I don't know how this came to be, but it's definitely true. That explains the coffee-over-tea consumption of which you're aware. There is, however, an increase of tea drinkers in the states, though I don't believe tea will ever become as popular as tea here... a shame, that. I don't have the proportional numbers for you, but hazarding a wild guess, I would say the ratio of coffee to tea drinkers is 99 to 1, with my thumb on the metaphorical scale of the "tea-totalers".

We drink both in my house, more than before as we are experimenting. Karen -descended from a die-hard, coffee-centric heritage

dear Dave: Recently I have posted some information in tea mail group about "tea consumption in US". For you convenience I am pasting it here-
In US per day tea consumption is 0-.50 cups per day. American's are the 25th country according to this list.. In total tea consumption- 80% as iced tea, 20% as hot tea. Though most of the American tea lovers in this group don't like Lipton but still Lipton is the best-selling brand of tea in the US market(50%). Most American use tea bags rather then loose tea. Last five years tea bags sales nationwide increased 6%. There are approximately 1,200-1,300 tea shops in US. Most of the tea drinkers are woman. Connecticut based Bigelow Tea is the only tea producing company in US. "American Classic Tea" is produced by this company.

Tea consumption in the US will probably increase due to the publicity about the health benefits of tea.

Hai Dev, 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.
Thanks, Healthzarp
