Hello dear tea lovers,
I am studying graphic design in Germany and one of my current projects is a magazine about tea.
Among other things I want to make an infographics about tea cultivation and consumption (worldwide).
I would like to show information about:
1. WHERE is WHICH tea grown mostly? (country/continent, type of tea)
2. WHERE is WHICH tea consumed mostly? (country/continent, type of tea)
Does anyone know or have any tips for me, where to get any numbers, information or statistics about these questions?
I very much appreciate help of any kind:)
Thank you very much in advance,

To try to answer your questions, I don’t know any reliable sources that goes down to the type of tea detail.
For production and consumption, you can look at the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization http://faostat.fao.org
For consumption, try this (the data is from 2009 and from the FAO but you have everything already listed) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_consumption
For trading info, look at the national statistics offices or at the customs.
You can also look there http://comtrade.un.org
This last one is probably the most complete source of official information on tea importations, exportations, re importations and re exportations.

@thedevotea Thank you for your confidence.
However, I am sure there are other information sources like the tea associations but when I wrote to some of them (including the German one), I didn’t get an answer.
And @thedevotea I am sure there are statistics you or others have or know about that I never heard of.
