Fancy a brew?
The Brits are the biggest tea lovers and drink a staggering 60 billion cups of tea per year according to the UK Tea & Infusions Association. This equates to an average of around 900 cups of tea per person a year and 2.5 cups of tea per day.
Tea is known to have derived from South West China in the Shang Dynasty as a medicinal drink and since the 18th Century, tea drinking has become engrained into the British way of life. I'm sure you all know that person who drinks tea on tap, and wouldn't it be nice for them to have a luxury teapot to cater for their tea drinking addiction!
