This Is The Perfect Colour For A Cuppa According To A Survey

This Is The Perfect Colour For A Cuppa According To A Survey

It's safe to say that a cup of tea is a very personal choice of beverage.

Some people like it so strong a spoon can stand up in it, and others prefer it milky, but there is no right or wrong really (there definitely is).

However, according to a survey by YouGov to identify the nation's ideal cuppa, the prefect brew is a strong cup with a generous dash of milk making it a golden brown shade.

The survey collected data from 1,595 people and researchers used an eight-point scale featuring different strength cups of teas which ranged from extremely milky to completely black.

Forty-seven percent of people surveyed chose a middle shade - a more golden brown brew - while 14 percent preferred a milkier cup and 19 percent went for a stronger one.

The survey also brought up the controversial debate of whether milk should be added before or after the water (always after).

The majority of Brits went for the traditional (and correct) option, with 70 percent saying milk should be added after water.

Tea lovers of various ages were also found to have different tea drinking habits. Four percent of 18 to 24-year-olds were found to add the milk first compared with 32 percent of the over 65s.

The nation also declared its favourite teabag as Yorkshire Tea, with a quarter of people saying it's their fave. PG Tips is the second favourite, followed by Tetley in third.

The custom of drinking tea dates back to the third millennium BC in China but it wasn't until the mid-17th century that it first appeared in England.

Tea was first sold in London's coffee shops during the 1600s and now Britons drink 165million cups of tea every day or more than 60billion a year.
