According to an article in Metro.co.uk dated April 2015 the average British person drinks 876 cups of tea per year, that’s enough to fill your bath twice. That equates to 36.5 KW of energy to boil the kettle!
The survey of 2,000 people, conducted by the charity Contact the Elderly, also found that over-55s drank the most tea – supping an average of 21 cups a week, compared to 18 – 24-year-olds who drink just eight.
According to UK Tea & infusions Association (2015) we consume 165 million cups daily or 60.2 billion per year. 96% is from a tea bag and 98% is consumed with milk.
Whilst the number of cups of coffee we drink as a nation is estimated at just 70 million.
