The decline of tea – are you giving up on the nation’s staple?

Britain is steadily falling out of love with tea, with consumption of the drink now showing a decline dating back to 1974.

The National Food Survey shows we were guzzling 68g a week of the stuff in the mid-1970s.

This had fallen to 25g by 2014, equating to a two-thirds fall in weekly purchases.

We asked a few Nottingham people if they are still drinking tea – or if their heads are being turned by the march of fresh coffee onto our high streets.
