Though regular black tea may account for the biggest share of the tea market in the UK at 70% , sales of English Breakfast teabags dropped 1.5% between 2010 and 2011 as Brit reached for more “exotic varieties”, reported research group Mintel.

The drop in sales coincides with the popularity of green tea which experienced an 8% growth between 2009 and 2011. Today, about 12% of Brits say they drink green tea on a weekly basis, said Mintel analysts.

The health benefits of green tea have been usurping the role of black tea in the UK, as sales nearly doubled from 12 million Euros in 2009, 22 million Euros in 2011. Sales of fruit and herbal teas also increased 10% between 2009 and 2011. Meanwhile, a study commissioned by the Tea Advisory Panel in the UK also claimed that black tea is just as effective as green tea in boosting health and blood circulation.
