Indian tea is derived from Camellia sinensis plant leaves, native to India and Asia. It has been a vital aspect of Indian culture for centuries and is globally renowned. Typically, tea involves steeping tea leaves in hot water and adding milk and sugar as desired. India offers various tea types like black tea, green tea, and chai, a spiced tea often prepared with milk and sugar.
According to SPER market research, ‘Indian Tea Market Size- By Material Type, By Product Type, By Package Type- Regional Outlook, Competitive Strategies and Segment Forecast to 2033’ state that the Indian Tea Market is predicted to reach USD XX billion by 2033 with a CAGR of XX%.
India’s tea industry is thriving due to widespread tea consumption across different socio-economic groups. The country’s robust economic growth and the expanding middle-class population are further fuelling the industry as consumers show a preference for premium tea brands. Packaged tea varieties are in high demand in both urban and rural areas due to reduced chances of adulteration, ease of storage, and superior quality. There is also a growing demand for packaged teas with natural ingredients. The middle class is increasingly open to experimenting with tea blends, particularly fruit, herbal, and specialty varieties. Green tea is poised for strong growth as awareness of its health benefits increases, especially among urban populations consuming it without milk. Additionally, innovation in packaging and flavours will play a role in industry expansion, and the rural sector presents untapped potential for further growth.
However, the Indian tea industry is growing, yet it encounters several challenges. One major obstacle is the competition from other tea-producing nations, including Sri Lanka, Kenya, and China, which can make it challenging for Indian tea to maintain competitive pricing in the global market. Climate change poses another issue, as it can significantly affect both the quality and quantity of tea produced due to shifts in temperature and rainfall patterns. These fluctuations in price and supply can create difficulties for tea growers in India.

In addition, the Indian tea market has felt the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Production, distribution, and consumption of tea have all been disrupted. Lockdowns and travel restrictions have led to labour shortages on tea plantations, reducing output and quality. Closure of hospitality establishments like hotels, restaurants, and cafes has significantly decreased tea demand, resulting in lower prices and financial challenges for small tea growers. However, the trend of more people enjoying tea at home has boosted the demand for packaged tea.
Geographically, North India dominates India’s tea industry, with Assam and West Bengal being major tea-producing states. Globally, Assam and Darjeeling teas are highly recognized. In contrast, South India, primarily Nilgiris, contributes nearly 20% of the industry, specializing in premium, high-quality varieties. Black tea is the largest segment in India’s tea industry. Additionally, some of the market key players are Amar Tea Pvt. ltd, Ramesh Tea Traders, Rossell India Ltd, Tata Consumer Products Limited, Wagh Bakri Tea Group, including others.
