Tea trade between China and Ghana


Ghana does not produce tea, but Ghana is a country that likes drinking tea. Ghana was a British colony before its independence in 1957. Influenced by British culture, the British brought tea to Ghana. At that time, black tea was popular. Later, Ghana's tourism industry developed and green tea was introduced, and young people in Ghana began to drink green tea gradually from black tea.

Ghana is a country in West Africa, bordering Côte d'Ivoire in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, Togo in the east, and the Atlantic Ocean in the south. Accra is the capital of Ghana. Ghana has a population of about 30 million. Among West African countries, Ghana's economy is relatively developed, mainly focusing on agriculture. The three traditional export products of gold, cocoa and timber are the backbone of Ghana's economy.


Ghana is an important tea trading partner of China. In 2021, the total amount of Chinese tea exports to Ghana increases significantly compared with the previous year, of which the export volume increases by 29.39% year on year and the export volume increases by 21.9% year on year.


In 2021, more than 99% of the tea exported from China to Ghana is green tea. The amount of green tea exported to Ghana will account for 7% of the total amount of green tea exported from China in 2021, ranking fourth among all trading partners.
