Britain is known as a nation of tea drinkers but the true extent of our tea habit is only just being fully explored. A recent survey by pointy headed boffins found that over 90% of Brits were largely made from tea. The extent to which people are composed of the heavenly liquid depends on whereabouts in Britain they live.
Yorkshire-dwellers are almost entirely composed of lapsang souchong while Orcadians are mostly made from a blend of Darjeeling and English Breakfast tea. Dundonians are made from builders’ tea and contain so much sugar that a spoon will stand up in them.
You can top up your tea levels with the Tea Indulgence Big Deal at Cup on Glasgow’s Byres Road. Tea Indulgence at Cup is more than just afternoon tea. Take a classic afternoon tea of freshly prepared sandwiches, home baked scones and plenty of sweet delights and then add your own bottle of bubbly (we provide the ice and glasses).
When you leave Cup, you will take home your own 125 gram satin-wrapped tin of our signature tea.
Cup’s afternoon teas are a hit with 5pm readers who have scored it a tasty 4.6/5. The Herald’s food critic Ron MacKenna is also a fan and wrote:
‘There are lashings of cream, sandwiches plumped up with fillings, the table groaning with food and freshly baked cinnamon scones with the melted butter oozing from them before our eyes …it’s all very, very good.’
