The North American tea market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.45% in the next five years.

  • The perceived health benefits of green tea, herbal tea, and fruit tea are increasing their popularity in the North American market. Hence, the consumption of tea is rising in the region. According to Statistics Canada, the amount of tea available for consumption per person in Canada increased to 82.04 liters in 2021 from 63.69 liters in 2018.
  • Additionally, the herbal tea segment is expected to grow significantly over the coming years. As a result of their health benefits, such as improving immunity, the market for herbal teas is increasing in the North American region.
  • Moreover, with the rising demand for natural and organic ingredients, consumers are also exploring a diversity of flavors and blends. In addition to higher-quality specialty teas featuring particular flavors, there is a growing interest in higher-quality specialty teas.
  • For instance, in February 2021, California-based Numi Organic Tea launched the 'Stay Healthy' Line of functional herbal tea. They recently introduced a line of teas that includes efficacious plants like echinacea, elderberry, dandelion root, Kanna leaf, and burdock root. It contains herbal blends developed to help users relax, support immunity, and combat common cold symptoms.
  • The market is witnessing steady growth due to the strong consumer preference in the United States, albeit Canada has been lukewarm in its response.

Canadians have become aware of the health benefits associated with tea consumption and the wide variety of tea offerings, driving the demand for tea during the forecast period.

North America Tea Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the North America Tea Market according to our research experts:

Healthy Hydration is Propelling the Market Growth

  • Tea consumption in North America is driven by consumers' search for new non-alcoholic beverages over fruit juices and carbonated drinks. Consumers are developing an affinity for tea due to its bag version, which offers enhanced convenience, thus, providing a suitable, convenient, and healthy alternative to juices and carbonates.
  • Healthy hydration refers to the ability of tea to provide instant refreshment and mild stimulating benefits that are not considered detrimental, which is otherwise the case with coffee and other energy drinks. The organoleptic versatility associated with tea makes it open to manufacturers to innovate alongside the healthy trends that have been resonating more prominently in the North American market.
  • The linkage between tea and its healthful properties, such as organic and others, remains fundamentally strong in the North American market. The tea market is propelled due to its health-promoting profile and the variety of herbal variants, new pack sizes, and organic options in North America. The manufacturers are launching their products in the region owing to the rising demand for healthy tea in the region.
  • For instance, in June 2022, The UK-based Clipper Tea Company expanded its product range in the United States with new packaging and flavors. The newly added flavors include organic earl grey black tea, organic orange & turmeric herbal tea, organic green tea & lemon, organic winter apple & cinnamon herbal tea, and organic winter berries herbal tea.
