BEIJING, June 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Himfr.com, one of China's leading B2B search platforms with more than 30 B2B industry websites to its name, predicts future tea consumption trends.

Tea has natural health benefits favored by people. In recent years, China's tea industry has made remarkable achievements. Every year there has been an increase of 10 million tons in sales volume.

Regional and tea drinking cultures with different drinking habits will not change, and tea grades will continue to increase. Drinking practices are ruled by health concerns, predisposition to certain tea types and deep-rooted habit.

Tea-drinkers are increasing in numbers not because of new income and age factors, but because other social drinks do not have the same health benefits and natural effect features that tea has. Attraction to tea culture stems from interest in organic agriculture and the effect of industrial products on human health. Drinking habits are also based on the social nature of tea drinking.

Tea consumption has also been affected by the emergence of tea products in the consumer goods market. Tea toothpaste, tea pillows, and tea paper products are just a few examples.

Tea distributors are currently turning to more environmentally friendly and technologically diverse packaging in order to better serve health and environment-conscious consumers. The higher demand for fresher tea is also driving new packaging procedures in tea distribution.

The tea industry is also seeing the emergence of medical teas, with major technological breakthroughs in the field expected in the near future.

Tea, as a health product gift, may, in fact, supplant the traditional high-grade tobacco and alcohol luxury gift market.

Consumer demand creates a market opportunity, and China's tea industry is embracing change, making them the market leader in tea.
