According to Traditional Home magazine “most Brits prefer PG Tips packed in pyramid shaped teabags. Although I’m not British, I enjoy PG Tips most mornings (that and London Cuppa). Americans reach for the smoother, more subtle flavor of Lipton, the best-selling tea in the States”. I grew up in Canada where Red Rose and Tetley tea were favorites.
It was also mentioned that Brits average three cups of tea per day, as compared to three cups a week for Americans. What! That was a surprise to me – I drink an average of 4-5 cups a day. Of course, there are many (like hubby) who drink coffee exclusively.
If you look at some of the stats on tea consumption on sites such as Wikipedia (2009) you’ll see United Arab Emirates as #1, Ireland #3, United Kingdom #7 and Canada and United States way down the list at #62 and #69. China didn’t even make the top twenty (#33).
Now I’m curious to know how many cups of tea you drink each day. Please see the poll on my sidebar.
