In 1983 China produced 401,000 metric tons of tea out of a total world production of 2.06 million tons.

Also, I should point out that while all the tea in China might not tempt you, if somebody offered you all the tea in India, you might want to give it some thought. Indian production in 1983 was 588,000 tons, the largest output of any country. (China was #2.)

Never buy cheap tea. It tastes rubbish compared with the good stuff and it's all very cheap, per cup, in any case.

As a firm believer in empirical study I rung my local Chinese restaurant.

I don't think they understood my question because all I got back was  "  eat in or take away ? "
