Abstract:

The study examines the prevalence of tea consumption as well as the characteristics of its consumers in Abeokuta, Ogun state. Discriminant and descriptive analyses were applied to cross sectional data obtained from the study area. The study showed that educational status, age, income per month, average consumption, marital status are the strong discriminating factors on tea consumption status (p < 0.05). The result established that the prevalence of tea consumption (73.4%) was high (male 73.1%, female 73.7%). The overall highest prevalence of tea consumption (100%) was observed among the respondents in the age bracket of 38- 47 years (male 100%, female 100%). Intensive media advertisement, improved packaging and consumers’ education are suggested recommendation for increase in tea consumption in the study area.
