A great Cup of tea remains a national treasure and is the most consumed drink in the UK! We typically brew up 3 times a day; although one in four thirsty Britons will get through 5 cups or more!
How do you like your tea?
Whilst us Brits can all agree that we love tea, how we enjoy our tea is quite a different story. Some like it milky, some like it strong; Whilst some like it with sugar, some are sweet enough!
A poll for WRVS, a charity that provides support for older people, revealed 35 per cent of people like their tea to be mid-brown; with only 3 per cent preferring their tea very milky. One in five likes to brew their tea in a teapot, while a traditional 6 per cent still use a cup and saucer. And 7 per cent are so picky that they will not let anyone else make them a cuppa. (when you know what you like, you know hey!)
