I don't know if their tea is with alcohol but I wouldn't be surprised. I know for sure that their signature coffee (Irish Coffee) is with Irish whiskey. - Metal_Treasure

EDIT: I was wrong. It turns out it doesn't have alcohol in, I must have got it mixed up with Irish coffee. Sorry :/ my mistake. - IronSabbathPriest

First of all, China invented tea. Second of all, it's the #1 tea consuming country. Third of all, I am ashamed I had to add it, I live on this stuff. Strong green, no sugar, no milk. - keycha1n

No, the #1 tea consuming country is Turkey, with 7.54 kg (266 oz) per capita. China is at #33 with only 0.82 kg (29 oz) per capita.
In other words, the average person in Turkey drinks 9-10 times more tea than the average person in China.
China's total consumption may be higher (or even #1) just because they are many people but this doesn't say much about their habits - total consumption doesn't say how much tea the average person consumes. Consumption per capita is more relevant and reliable. - Metal_Treasure
