The World's Biggest Tea Drinkers, Visualized

While everyone drinks coffee, tea is a beverage for the more discerning drinker. But where in the world do people drink the most?

Last week, Quartz published a visualisation of the world's biggest coffee drinkers; now it's time to fort tea. Stereotypes might suggest the UK would come top, but that's not quite right. In fact, Turkey is the biggest tea-swilling nation, demolishing a monstrous 6.961 pounds (3.157kg) of the stuff every year. Trailing behind are Ireland, consuming 4.831 pounds (2.191kg), and the UK, who put back 4.281 pounds (1.942kg). Australia made it to number 13 on the list at 1.649 pounds (0.748kg). The full ranking is down below. [Quartz]
