It is popularly cultivated in the hilly regions of Assam, Tripura, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Arunachal Pradesh across India. It is commonly available in numerous variants, including black, white, herbal, green and oolong tea. It is considered to be a healthy beverage due to the presence of numerous potassium, manganese, magnesium, minerals and calcium. Apart from this, it is also a rich source of potent antioxidants, polyphenols and caffeine. Since India is one of the largest producers and consumers of tea on the global level, tea is widely available as an affordable beverage that is consumed by the masses on a daily basis.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

India Tea Market Trends:

The market in India is majorly driven by considerable growth in the food and beverages sector.

Apart from this, the growing health-consciousness among individuals regarding the numerous health benefits offered by the regular consumption of tea is also acting as a major growth-inducing factor.

Moreover, numerous key players are now utilizing multi-layered packaging to minimize the chances of spoilage and adulteration while ensuring that the freshness and aroma of the product remain intact, which is creating a positive outlook for the market.
