China is the homeland of tea, which is the main reason for the great variety of this drink. Last TEAsting we were on a wave of rare specialties, and now we are returning to tradition – green teas. The fight for consumer attention in this segment is not from yesterday. On the one hand, Japan offers material at a very high level, but as our host from Tea House Plovdiv Adrian says, “in recent years, the Japanese have raised the prices so much that for the Bulgarian consumer their teas are becoming more and more a luxury”.
This trend is, of course, welcome for Chinese manufacturers, who with their huge volumes and low cost of production are capturing an ever-increasing percentage of the market.
