Tea remains the most popular hot drink in the UK, with 165 million cups being consumed every day according to UK Tea & Infusions Association. We hear from the experts at Miles Tea & Coffee about the nations favourite cuppa…
Quintessentially British, the humble cup of breakfast tea remains the most popular blend. Traditional black tea is the drink most of the nation wakes up with and it has been enjoyed in our country for centuries. But with health and wellbeing at the forefront of everyone’s minds, consumers are being, and have been for a number of years now, more conscientious of what they eat and drink. This trend shows no signs of dwindling and many tea drinkers are enjoying a selection of different tea varieties throughout the day, with the aim of being exposed to a range of health benefits.
Peppermint tea, which is a natural sedative, is a popular choice for the health conscious. Its soothing effect can help to relieve stress, lower the body’s temperature and relax the muscles. Peppermint aids digestion and reduces the feeling of nausea. Miles has a blend of loose-leaf peppermint tea, peppermint teabags and a Liquorice, Peppermint and Spearmint Tea Kite for you to choose from.
Ginger is another key ingredient that is said to aid digestion and helps the body to recover from muscle fatigue, while lemongrass is known for detoxifying the body. Miles’ uplifting Ginger and Lemongrass Tea Kites are full of flavour, naturally fragrant and perfect for a pick-me-up if you are feeling a slump in the day.
Green tea is extremely popular. It can help to regulate blood pressure and blood sugars, boost the immune system and alleviate mood swings. So whatever time of day and whatever pick-me-up your body needs, Miles has a tea blend just for you.
Pair the trend of drinking a variety of tea blends with the demand for sustainability and re-useable or environmentally friendly products and the result is an increase in the popularity of loose-leaf tea, with consumers choosing stainless steel tea infusers rather than a traditional teabag –a brew to be savoured. Miles are proud to have over 25 varieties of loose-leaf tea, so you can always enjoy a moment with Miles.
