Now, If we take Japan, China and England out of it. Then what do we drink more of?

That would be taking nearly a quarter of the world's population out of the equation. And the answer would still be tea.

Actually 20% of the world is Chinese,alone...add Japan and Great Britain....you've got way more than 1/4 of the world. Tea is a major beverage in so many other places....I can see why it is easily the world"s # 1 drink after water!

Not to split hairs, but I just like statistics:

People's Republic of China: 1,322,490,000 or 19.82% of the world
Japan: 127,790,000 or 1.92% of the world
United Kingdom: 60,587,300 or 0.91% of the world

Total for the three= 22.65% of the world
- or NEARLY a quarter, as I originally stated.

It's amazing that the amount of research I just did took me about 30 seconds. When I was in college, that would have taken a week in thel ibrary.

...and I counted the whole United Kingdom. If I had just counted Great britain, the number would have been lower: 58,845,700 or .88%

This is based on a world population of 6,671,226,000 as estimated in July 2007. Figures are based on the most recent estimate or projection by the national census authority where available and generally rounded off. Other figures are based on the 2007 mid-year estimate by the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs – Population Division.

And I would also imagine that the number one beverage outside of water in India and Indonesia is also tea. I also wouldn't be surprised if it is also number one in Russia as well.

If I just think about on my own drinking habits, I probably drink a quart to a half gallon of tea a day. I probably have two cups of coffee a day I probably average one beer/wine/cocktails a day. I might get one maybe two cups of lemonade, juice and/or smoothie a day. As for soda, my daily average is well under one a day.

i LOVE tea but I have decided to go cold turkey and am trying not to drink so much of it. I'm talking about the tea made with oodles of sugar and served over a cold glass brimming with ice! I love it but I really am trying to cut down on the amount of sugar I take in...drinking almost 2 qts of sweet tea a day is not good for my waistline...or my teeth! I've gone two days without it...so far so good. Let's see how long I last!

It's Wednesday and I've gone four days without my beloved sweetened iced tea. I've been drinking nothing but water or the occasional oj for breakfast. I've also stopped serving bread with every meal....that's been a hard one to overcome!
