Why Liverpool is the UK’s tea hotspot
It is the city that gave us the Beatles, a Ferry across the Mersey and a football rivalry like no other between the city’s two top teams, yes it’s Liverpool. The Northern City is officially the UK’s tea drinking capital with people in the city consuming a staggering 66,685 cups of tea and 50,589 cups of coffee on average over their lifetimes in the city.
But Liverpudlians cannot claim the crown for which English county drinks the most tea because the good people of Yorkshire proudly take that crown with some 80 per cent of the population saying they regularly drink the beverage. Then of course there are hundreds of lovely tea shops all across the county and into the Yorkshire Dales providing splendid cups of tea and jam scones for visitors to enjoy. But what type of tea is most popular in Yorkshire and indeed across the United Kingdom, well for Yorkshiremen and women it could only be one brand, Yorkshire Tea, of course. It’s also the United Kingdom’s favourite with 26.2 per cent of Brits agreeing to liking the taste best, PG Tips comes in a close second at 26.1 per cent.
