Iqbal revealed that the South Asian country has been importing tea on credit, putting pressure on its economy, which faces a high inflation rate.

CNN reported that he urged his fellow citizens to consider reducing their drink intake by one or two cups daily.
“I appeal to the nation to cut down the consumption of tea by one to two cups because we import tea on loan,” the senior government official said.

The minister urged Pakistanis to avoid all products the country does not produce independently. The Observatory of Economic Complexity (OEC) noted that Pakistan was the largest importer of tea in the world in 2020.
