    Did you know...

    1. The average Brit drinks 876 cups of tea every single year – enough to fill two bath tubs!

    2. Traditionally in England, milk was poured into the cup to protect the delicate bone china.

    3. There are more uses for tea than just drinking it. Cold tea is even said to be good for taking the sting out of a sunburn.

    4. It’s also a social drink: 80% of British office workers say they find out more about what’s going on over a cup of tea than any other way.
