Big News: Brits Now Prefer Coffee To Tea

Big News: Brits Now Prefer Coffee To Tea

I hope all my fellow Brits are sitting down, because I have something to say that will shock you to your very core.

A recent survey has found that British people prefer coffee to tea.

I know. It's a bloody outrage. According to Metro, a whopping 61 percent of British folk prefer a hot cup of Joe to a delightful brew.

Monin, a company that makes syrups for coffee, asked 1,500 people which they preferred ahead of International Coffee Day. (If you're wondering when International Tea Day is, it's the 15 December. Pop it in your diary now and we'll celebrate it together.)

And the, frankly outrageous, results found that coffee was favoured over tea, and that, specifically, a latte was the hot caffeinated-beverage of choice. Followed by cappuccino and Americano.

Sixty-five percent of those who preferred coffee to tea said it was purely down to the taste. Fair enough, there's no accounting for taste, as they say.

But some of those coffee-loving Brits were full of excuses for their choice, with 46 percent saying they needed the extra caffeine boost to help them wake up and 39 percent saying they needed a little lift throughout the day. Why? Why not just be constantly shattered like the rest of us?

Don't get me wrong. I'm not going in on coffee, I like coffee. Coffee very much has its place in society - and that place is from a decent coffee shop, first thing in the morning. But better than tea? No, absolutely not. You're limited with coffee, you can have three, max, before you start to get The Fear.

Tea, though? You can swig that all day.

In a sign that the end days are surely here, a different study found that tea consumption in the UK has fallen by 19 percent since 2010.

Brits are now knocking 2.1 billion cups of coffee to 874 million cups of tea a year - or, to put it another way, almost two-and-a-half coffees for every tea.

However, all is not lost, because these figures from researchers at NDP only account for tea and coffee bought outside of the home, from coffee shops etc. so are bound to show higher levels of coffee sold, right?

At home, I like to think you're all pulling your weight and drinking the stock-standard seven cups a day.
