Overview of the herbal tea market

Extensive research carried out by market research analysts at Technavio has shown that the global herbal tea market will grow at a steady pace and will post a moderate CAGR of more than 5% over the forecast period. Herbal tea has several health benefits and is available in a variety of flavors such as orange and apple, which are not only delicious but are a perfect alternative to unhealthy sodas. Moreover, herbal tea is rich in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Some of the most popular herbal teas include peppermint tea, chamomile tea, and hibiscus tea. While peppermint tea aids in digestion and has antiviral and antimicrobial properties, chamomile tea has antiplatelet-clumping activity and plays a vital role in reducing the occurrence of blood clots. Also, hibiscus tea lowers the blood pressure and is ideal for pre-hypersensitive and mildly hypersensitive people. The increasing awareness about preventive healthcare and stressful lifestyle is encouraging consumers to opt for products with health benefits like herbal tea.

Online retailing is a recent trend spurring the growth prospects of the herbal tea market in the coming years. Although the brick-and-mortar retail channel remains the key channel in the market, Internet retailing is witnessing rapid growth. Factors such as quick delivery services and competitive selling prices are some of the major factors boosting the growth of Internet retailing worldwide. Several websites like mightyleaf.com, teabox.com, themandarinstearoom.com, and adagio.com offer different flavors and types of tea. Also, the sites provide options such as live chat to provide instant support to people who face any kind of difficulty while purchasing products, which is driving consumers to purchase herbal teas online, leading to this market’s growth in the coming years.
