Tea-riffic Things To Know!

Tremendous, terrific, trusted...Tea. Tracing back to ancient China and coming across to Europe in the seventeenth century, tea has always been popular.

British and their tea

Rising in popularity, Afternoon Tea became known as something quintessentially British.

Served with jam, scones and clotted cream, it made a delicious afternoon treat to keep you content until dinnertime, as it still does to this day!

If you ask any British person in the world they will, most likely, happily describe how they make the perfect cuppa. They will also provide you with precise instructions on how they like it, which, (if they are anything like me) will often be used as a hint to get you to make one for them.

Whether you add a lot of sugar, just a touch of milk or leave it alone swimming in the water – everyone loves their tea in a specific way. Caffeinated or decaf – the choice is yours.

We offer a wide variety including: PG Tips, Tetley Tea, Yorkshire Tea, Typhoo and Twining’s. Whether you prefer a healthy Green Tea, a Breakfast Tea to help you wake up in the morning, or simply a brand you remember growing up with – we provide you with the opportunity to try them all.

Caffeine and tea

However, when trying to find the perfect brand, people often have the questions: What is the taste difference? How much caffeine is in this cup?

You may want more in the morning, but not too much late in the evening. Of course, this can range from the type of tea you drink; to the exact way you brew it.

Fortunately, we have searched the Internet and composed a small chart to provide you with rough guidelines on caffeine per cup:

Tea Brand






40-50mg caffeine

0.4% caffeine- 4mg


60mg caffeine

0.2% caffeine, 2mg

23-110mg caffeine
