Tea consumption in countries

I came across this list in Wikipedia and thought to share. This is a list of countries ordered by annual per capita consumption of tea, as of 2016. This list doesn’t say which type of tea was used more.

For example main type of tea consumed in Turkey is black tea (CTC). The average person drinks up to 10 cups of tea per day! The traditional black tea is served strong and sweet.Turkey produces almost as much tea as Sri Lanka but only 5% of Turkish grown tea is exported. Turkey is one of the few countries outside Italy to grow bergamot citrus which is an ingredient for making Earl Grey tea.
