Londoners 'drink four cups of tea a day' says new survey

First published in Greenwich news by

LONDONERS are hooked on tea, drinking four cups a day on average a day, according to a new survey.

The survey found that half of Londoners say they need a cup of tea every day in order to function.

The nationwide survey also found that 71 percent of Brits drink more than three cups a day.

The research was conducted by tea-selling website Teapigs which promotes tea made from the whole leaf and not just the tips.

Louise Alan, the website’s tea taster, said: “We’re calling on the public to demand better quality from anywhere that sells and serves tea across the country.

“The shameful brown slop that so often passes as tea just isn’t good enough. Tea drinkers of the UK deserve better. Drink real tea.”

Cup? You are lucky to have a cup. In our house we used to have to drink from a rolled up newspaper.

Aye, but we were happy, although we were poor ....

"hooked"...."4 cups"???

Is being hooked worse than being a binge drinker?

If it weren't for the confused.com adverts I'd have stopped reading the NS along time ago!!!!

Blimey, is this the dictionary definition of churnalism?

A company's PR release based on their own survey does not a news story make.

I know Newsquest are trying to cut staff (a bad thing: local papers need local journalists) but come on!
