In August 2023 alone, Pakistan imported tea worth Rs. 15.91 billion, compared to Rs. 10.29 billion in August 2022.
The data suggests that there is a big and growing demand for tea in Pakistan, which is likely due to a number of factors, including the country’s growing population, rising disposable incomes, and changing lifestyles.

The increase in tea consumption is good news for the Pakistani economy, as it creates jobs and boosts tax revenue. It is also a sign of the country’s growing prosperity.
