Why Brits just love a cuppa




Britain enjoys an intimate love affair with tea – just look at the facts. On average they each drink 3½ cups of tea a day, or 130,000 tonnes in a year, 96 percent of which are from tea bags. As a nation they drink 165 million cups per day or 62 billion cups per year; 70 per cent of the population (over the age of 10) drank tea yesterday; over 25 per cent of all the milk consumed in the UK goes in their cups of tea.
But why do British people like to drink tea?
There are very few situations where making a cup of tea is an inappropriate response:
Emotional breakdown? Tea.
Life-changing celebration? Calls for a cup of tea.
World-threatening emergency? Tea.
They even tend to make some when they don't know what to do next.
For Brits, the question is why everyone else doesn't drink more tea.
