IMO, it is the first statement which states "The boom... will end... when the consumer learns...Krztanzian style freshly brewed tea often contains an amount of caffeine equivalent to that in up to eight cans..." gives away the fact that author is assuming that consumers of this city are conscious about the caffeine consumption and hence the option C.

the conclusion says that freshly brewed tea business in Krztanza will end because of higher calories & caffeine values. ????

Freshly brewed tea has more caffeine and more calories as compared to packaged tea.
The conclusion: The boom in the freshly brewed tea business will end.

In order to establish the conclusion, we must assume that the citizens of Krztanza will certainly not prefer high calorie/high caffeine products.

A. Consumers in Krztanza do not mind high levels of caffeine and high calorie counts in their freshly brewed coffee. - this would weaken the conclusion, not support it.

B. Although Krztanzian style freshly brewed tea is less healthy than packaged tea, it has become very popular.
- this would advocate for freshly brewed tea, not weaken it.

C. Consumers in Krztanza do not prefer high calorie beverages that contain high levels of caffeine. - this is what we are looking for. Hence, (C) is the right answer choice.

D. Krztanzian style freshly brewed tea could be improved via reducing its levels of calories and caffeine.
- the passage does not mention anything about whether the freshly brewed tea can be improved in any way. Moreover, (D) does not support the conclusion.

E. Ultimately, the consumption of tea in Krztanza will decrease because packaged tea contains fewer calories and caffeine
. - the conclusion states that boom in the freshly brewed tea business will end; Just because one type of tea will no longer exist in the market, we cannot conclude that the entire market (of ''tea consumption'') will cease to exist, especially considering the fact that the packaged tea can be used as a viable alternative.
