“If you are cold, tea will warm you; if you are too heated, it will cool you; if you are depressed, it will cheer you; if you are excited, it will calm you.” – William E Gladstone
These words are as true now as they were 150 years ago when the British Prime Minister himself expressed his love for the traditional hot drink.
With 66% of Brits enjoying at least one cup of tea daily, the drink is as well liked as ever. We drink a massive 60.2 billion cups of the stuff every year! The drink proves especially popular in the work place, with 80% of office workers claiming they find out more information over a brew than they do in any other way.
With all this in mind, it’s important to remember that the humble cup of tea is a beacon of reassurance for the nation, providing all of us with a little cup of comfort when we most need it.
