As incredible as it may sound, Afghanistan is a bigger importer of tea than the United States. With imports of 134 000 tons (2012), it is the world's third-largest tea importer, surpassed only by Russia (180 000 tons) and Britain (145 000 tons), according to data by Statista.
This reflects the fact that Afghanistan, just as Britain, is a tea-drinking country that does not produce tea, or very little at best. Only, Afghans are drinking even more tea than the English!
Afghans like their tea in various forms: as Chai Sabze (green tea), ChaiSya (black tea), Shlr Chai (mik tea) or Kahwa (spiced tea).
Cardamom seeds are added to all types of tea. Kahva also contains saffron and cinnamon and sometimes Kashmir roses.
Teas are sweetened with sugar or honey. Occasionally, crushed almonds or walnuts are added.
Now we understand why Afghans love their tea so much!
