The Chinese tea industry, long dominated by the country’s biggest companies, is experiencing an existential crisis.
According to research from the U.S.-based tea trade association, China’s tea imports from the United States have fallen by 60% in a single year.
And, according to a recent report from the trade association’s Beijing office, the market is now facing an existential threat: “Chinese tea is dying out and we’re going to have to rebuild the industry from scratch,” said Zhang Jieyi, the chief executive officer of the tea industry’s trade association.
“This is the first time that the tea market has collapsed.
It’s a massive market, but we’re not going to be able to save it.”
The tea industry in China is an almost entirely state-run enterprise that’s heavily reliant on foreign capital and its state-controlled media.
In 2015, China became the second-largest tea exporter in the world, after the United Kingdom, which imports more than 80% of its tea.
The country is also home to the world’s largest tea growing area, which accounts for nearly two-thirds of the world production.
But China’s economic decline is creating an unprecedented demand for imported tea from overseas, with tea consumption increasing in China and the rest of the global tea market.
“Chinese consumers have become more adventurous with their consumption of tea and are looking for new ways to consume tea,” said Wang Yu, vice president of the research firm Beverage Trends.
“They’re not buying traditional tea because they don’t want to pay more, but because they’re interested in something different.
And there’s a growing appetite for something that’s more organic and organic tea.”
China has seen a dramatic shift in the way tea is consumed in recent years, with more tea being consumed in China as opposed to the United Nations World Tea Day and other international events.
According the U, the world tea market is projected to grow from $13.7 billion in 2016 to $27.4 billion in 2020, or almost three times more than in 2016.
“We are witnessing a tremendous surge in tea consumption in China,” said Yan Huo, an analyst at IBISWorld.
“It’s becoming a very important commodity for tea growers.”
The tea industry is also seeing a shift in its business model, with many producers starting to specialize in a handful of tea categories that include “tea, tea, tea,” and “teas, teas, tea.”
Tea-related businesses, like the tea processing industry and the tea-related beverage industry, are also booming.
The tea processing business, for example, is growing by about 15% per year, according IBIS.
In the tea beverage industry alone, the number of tea processors has grown by 80% in the past decade, according BeverageTrend.
Tea processing is becoming a popular specialty for tea farmers in China.
In the tea harvest season, the tea is processed into tea bags and used to make tea bags.
Tea bags are made from the tea leaves and are used to pack tea leaves into bags.
Tea bags are then shipped to tea-processing plants and processed for tea.
Tea-processing is an important industry in the country, and the Chinese government is actively promoting the industry, with government-backed companies promoting the use of tea bags for tea and tea-based products.
According a recent study, tea-processing businesses in China accounted for roughly 20% of the countrys tea production in 2016, and about half of the total tea-producing capacity in the entire country.
In other words, the demand for tea-to-tea packaging is rising fast.
China’s economy is projected be worth $13 trillion by 2020, and China is expected to overtake the United Republic of Nations as the world largest tea exporters by 2020.
With the tea boom, tea processing is expected be one of the sectors that will be hit the hardest by the Chinese economy’s decline.
While tea processing in China has increased significantly in recent decades, the industry is still largely run by local tea growers, with the majority of production being in rural areas.
“China has the potential to become a major tea expansion market for many years to come, but the industry has not seen an increase in volume in the last 10 years,” said Mr. Zhao.
“In the past 10 years, the increase in the number and size of tea processing plants has been driven by the increase of tea consumption.”
China has become the second largest tea consuming country in the Asia-Pacific region after the U-S.
Tea, tea and beverage exports to the country totaled $3.5 trillion in 2016 and $7.4 trillion in 2017, according the Beverage Trend report.
The United States had $3 trillion in tea and $4 trillion to China’s $5 trillion.
China’s tea consumption has skyrocketed in recent times, with its consumption of the leaf has increased by
