There is so much written about British tea but did you know that when it was first introduced to Britain, the government promoted it as an alternative to beer which at the time was commonly drunk throughout the day as untreated water was considered unfit for human consumption?
During WWII it was considered an important morale booster and so important that during the air raids of the Battle of Britain, stores of tea were hidden in 500 secret locations throughout the country to protect it.
