Teas and drinks in India are getting more affordable as more people opt for affordable versions of traditional drinks such as tea near them and milk in their coffee.
Teas are getting cheaper in the country as well as in the U.S., with the average price of a cup of tea in India jumping from Rs. 1,300 ($15) in 2013 to Rs. 2,000 ($20) in 2016, according to Euromonitor International.
While India is the biggest producer of tea globally, it has been struggling to make a dent in the market.
The U.K. is the second largest tea producer with about 20 percent of global production.
India is also an export market for teas, which account for over 40 percent of the country’s total tea consumption.
But India has not had a lot of success in pushing back against the dominance of the Chinese market.
“It’s a big shift in the Indian market, especially in the last five years,” said Jodh Singh, an analyst with Euromonitors.
“The Chinese are not as successful at pushing down prices, and India has a lot to prove.
I think it’s a good move.”
The U, UK, Germany and France are among the countries where tea is still priced much higher than it used to be.
For example, in the United Kingdom, tea is now about 10 times more expensive than a cup in India.
However, the increase in tea prices has slowed down in the past two years.
This is due to the introduction of new measures to help the tea industry, such as a ban on selling tea on the black market and strict regulations on what tea is sold in retail outlets.
While the price of tea has risen, it is not as dramatic as in China, where the price for a cup is now more than two times as much as in India, according the World Trade Organization.
India has also made strides in reducing the price disparity between tea and milk, which are the main reasons for people drinking milk and tea.
India also introduced a policy last year that allowed tea producers to sell milk to the public without paying a price.
For those who prefer milk, India is a great place to start, Singh said.
“In India, people have been buying tea since the 1960s and have had it for the last 50 years.
People who have never had tea are the ones who are buying milk.
The more people who have tea, the more people will have milk.”
While many countries around the world are trying to curb consumption of tea, India’s tea consumption has been growing for the past 15 years.
The country’s population is about 6.3 billion and tea is the largest drink in the economy.
India’s population of over 1.2 billion is about 10 percent of that of China, which has more than 4 billion people.
India recently opened its first retail outlet to sell tea to the general public.
The first store opened in New Delhi’s Jantar Mantar on Dec. 31.
