Which Countries Produce the Most Tea?
The following map uses 2008 FAOSTAT data, color-coded on a logarithmic scale. Note that countries that produce commercial tea on the global market are highlighted, but they may only produce tea in a small subregion. For example, most of Russia is too cold to produce tea. A few countries not highlighted, like the U.S. and England, produce negligible amounts of tea commecially, and are not included in these figures.
