Sri Lanka has become a direct tea supplier, in addition to being the dominant tea supplier to Iraq - the fifth largest buyer of 'Pure Ceylon Tea' in the world.

In terms of volume, it has increased to 22 thousand 624 metric tonnes from 13 thousand 052 metric tonnes in 2010.

This huge growth shows that tea transhipment levels are falling, giving the benefit of becoming the direct supplier in addition to being the dominant supplier to Iraq's 170 million dollar annual tea import market.
