According to Wikipedia, Japan is actually the 10th highest country with 0.968 kg (34.1 oz). Interestingly, tea consumption has actually gone down in the last few years since around 2007-2008 (assuming the charts that I'm looking at here is accurate) from 139,779 tons to 123,384 tons in 2012. Again, assuming if what I'm reading is right, I'm not an expert, just posting some fun facts. If anyone wants to make corrections, by all means do so.

Probably less than you think, but I could be wrong?

I've had tea from around the world, why yes I adore tea, so, it's to no surprise. as for wiki those pages are remotely accurate, not perfect but a good start regarding research. here's another fun link I found at random breaking it down in pounds http://worldteanews.com/news/per-capita-tea further research I found, not all Japanese youngsters drink the tea like the oldsters do, so, it's more rare for the younger generation to consume as much tea, however they sure do love "normal" sized bottles of tea, including coffee. their vending machines know no bounds! also found this fun link regarding tea in Turkey https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tea_in_Turkey guess folks are giving up their coffee love there and going for tea for awhile. generation to generation sure are fun to learn about, what one liked previous, not always the case the following one.

That's quite a huge surprise to see what's on top of the list. I would think that China would be on top since tea is served just about everywhere there, and with all of their meals as well. But they are way down the list, while it's Arab nations and places not known for tea that's on top.
