Upscale Tea

A need for public consumption has resulted in upscale tea-drinking experiences

Implications - Tea is a beverage closely associated with at-home relaxation, but as tea culture becomes more popular, consumers are more likely to want to enjoy the beverage in a public space with like-minded enthusiasts. To satiate this desire, there has been a rise in gourmet tea houses and luxurious out-of-home experiences, signaling that the beverage is evolving into an upscale indulgence.
