It's amusing that our westward cousins think we all have butlers and wear bowler hats, and the despised ones to our south think we eat nothing but roast beef, but the one I'm referring to is the tea. When I'm abroad, the moment someone knows I'm British they either offer me tea or apologise for not having any.
I recall reading somewhere that the cost, in tea, of building the M1 motorway was 25 gallons per mile. I wonder if we're still a nation of tea drinkers or has coffee taken over? I used to drink a lot of coffee, but I now realize it was only because it was more convenient because since I gave up instant coffee I drink more tea. I average at least six cups a day versus a maximum of two coffees.
How much tea and coffee do you drink?
Top half of the poll is tea, bottom half is coffee.
