3 Billion cups of tea consumed a day!

Back to listings

We knew tea was popular but we didn’t know it was quite this popular! According to the Society Tea, we consume about three billion - yes, BILLION - cups of tea a day! Think of all those kettles boiling, spoons stirring, lips slurping and biscuits dunking!

This colourful infographic also has a few other interesting things to say too about tea, like did you know for instance that tea was an accidental invention? Just like popcorn, the microwave and post-it notes! Although it doesn’t say how it was accidentally invented sadly, but it we are a little curious as to the source of the claims because it also says that tea can be used to clean carpets, freshen the air and soothe burns and even fight terrorism!
