One question I often see asked in online forums is what countries grow tea? China, India, Sri Lanka, and Kenya make up the largest portion of world production but tea can be found in over 60 different countries. The list is constantly changing and expanding, especially under the pressure of climate change.
After doing a bit of digging, I’ve started a spreadsheet to keep track of them all. It is embedded below and I’ll continue to update it as new ones are discovered.
When I first got into tea, tea was not grown in some of these places or was not very accessible. Today new origins like Scotland and the United States are on the rise.
Are there any countries on this list that surprised you? Is there a place that I’ve missed Let me know in the comments if I missed anything!
