How many cups of tea do you drink a day? 3? 5? ☕️ Comment below! I’m asking as the traditional cuppa is under threat in the UK..Eek! Have a think whilst you look at this beautiful view of Edinburgh Castle. Call me old fashioned, but I do love a nice lamp and giant lump of 350 million year old lava rock.

Aye, it's not looking tip top for the traditional British brew. Some major companies behind big names like PG Tips and Lipton are quitting the tea business as traditional English teas are being shunned by a generation of folk raised on coffee and fashionable herbal teas. Thankfully, however, tea is still our national drink with over 100 MILLION cups quaffed every day. But coffee is catching up fast with some 95 million supped daily. I must admit, I drink far more coffee than tea these days.
Ahh isn’t this lovely? Edinburgh Castle looms magnificently above, standing on that vast chunk of volcanic rock which was polished into shape by wandering glaciers. This strategic position - overlooking neighbouring lands - meant that the site was certainly used as an Iron Age fortress. The castle was used for keeping royal treasure and records and kings frequently lived in it. But when William the Lion was captured at Alnwick in 1174, Edinburgh was one of a number of castles handed over to Henry II of England. It was returned to Scotland in 1186 as part of the dowry on his marriage to an English noblewoman, Emardis de Beamont. Bless you.

PG Tips and Lipton are getting out of the tea business? What?
4with milk no sugar
I'm a 50 year old American living in Arizona and I switched from 1 mug of coffee a day to 3-5 mugs of hot tea a day about a year ago. When I drink coffee now it tastes too strong and I love the ritual of steeping my tea adding sugar and cream. I also find when I order hot tea out the taste is much more consistent than coffee which can taste bitter (Starbucks) to old and stale (IHop/Dennys) . Love my tea!!☕
Coffee = more caffeine, hence more popular
Beautiful pic! I drink about two to three cups a week.
