Hot Tea

Most hot tea drinkers have one favorite brand, but brand allegiances have shifted over the past decade with the emergence of new specialty brands. Tea drinkers are increasingly attracted to clean and green product qualities and express a growing willingness to pay more for organic and fair trade teas.

The recently released 2017 Gallup Study of HOT TEA is the 11th in a trended series initiated in 2003.  It is designed to provide directional insights into overall tea consumption among the U.S. adult population and details of hot tea habits and preferences among a targeted sample of regular hot tea drinkers.  Conducted in two phases, topics include:
