According to data, the global tea market showed an overall upward trend from 2019 to 2025, but declined slightly in 2020 due to the impact of the epidemic. It is expected that the market size will reach 266.7 billion US dollars by 2025; In 2022, China will become the largest tea market, with an estimated market size of 99.8 billion US dollars, surpassing the combined market size of the second to seventh ranked countries.

Under the protection of local policies, the quality and popularity of tea in major production areas continue to improve. For example, in recent years, Hangzhou, Zhejiang has enacted legislation to protect West Lake Longjing tea, focusing on industrial optimization and brand protection, eliminating illegal infringement such as misuse and misuse of the West Lake Longjing trademark, and strengthening the protection of the West Lake Longjing brand and the development of high-quality products.

In recent years, the export sales scale of green tea from major production areas such as West Lake Longjing, Biluochun, and Anji White Tea has been continuously increasing, and it has been widely recognized by overseas people. At the same time, the market has shown strong interest in products characterized by small scope, high product recognition, and high-quality products. A number of small tea varieties in the growing market have emerged, such as Fuding White Tea, Wuyi Rock Tea, and Fenghuang Dancong, which have a certain consumption scale compared to other tea varieties. The compound growth of Zhangping Narcissus, Enshi Yulu, and Baojing Gold Tea is outstanding.

Mature individuals, represented by those between the ages of 30 and 49, have contributed over 70% of their consumption to the tea market and are the main consumers in the online tea industry; In the past three years, the proportion of consumption among young people aged 18 to 29 has been increasing year by year, and the growth rate is considerable, becoming a potential trend group. The health awareness of Chinese people is constantly strengthening, and research results show that 98% of consumers have changed their concept of beverage selection.
