Consumption of black tea is set to grow by 1.8%, from about 3.3 million tons to 3.36 million tons by 2021.
However, relative to consumption of green teas and herbal/fruit teas, the consumption of black tea is decreasing. Kenya is the third largest tea producer (after China and India) and the largest exporter of black tea in the world. It is also the largest tea supplier to the European market (21.3 persent of total imports in 2015).

Kenya has the largest share of the EAC tea exports.
