Celebrate a Cuppa this National Tea Day 2017

With 84% of Britain drinking tea and herbal infusions every day, it wouldn’t come as much of a surprise that, last year, #NationalTeaDay was the top trending hash tag in the UK!

This year, FtL will be sharing in the love of a cuppa by making this day a memorable one to remember.

Why not look to broaden your knowledge and experience of tea by trying some niche tea blends from across the country and the rest of the world? Who knows, you may discover one that you absolutely love.

And let’s not overlook the following important factor, one that’s often forgotten during our busy tea slurping day: drinking the right tea can benefit your health, particularly with those that feature anti-oxidants, can greatly help your skin quality, and is even known to lower cholesterol.

Did you know...
  • We Brits drink 165 million cups each day or 60.2 billion per year.
  • The largest per capita tea drinking nation is the Republic of Ireland followed by Britain.
  • 96% of British tea is consumed from a tea bag.
  • 98% of tea is taken with milk.
  • Tea, like fruit and vegetables, is a natural source of polyphenols and flavonoids which have antioxidant activity.
