Along with fish and chips, roast dinners and scones, the humble cuppa is a quintessentially British hallmark.
But it seems the nation has shifted in their hot drink preferences.
According to a new study, Britain has now become a nation of coffee drinkers – with more than half preferring it to tea.
In fact, 56% admit they would rather have a cup of coffee over a tea – with 72% saying they consume the former every day.
So while the milk before teabag, teabag before milk debate rages on – as well as the controversy over the shade of the perfect cup of tea – it seems less people are drinking the hot beverage.
And a reliance on caffeine may be fuelling this coffee takeover.
The research, conducted by CafePod, found 52% of us worry about our daily caffeine intake – with 18% insisting they cannot function without coffee and 11% admitting going without makes them feel jittery.
So it seems the nation is grateful to the hot beverage for helping them get through the day.
But the majority of coffee consumption happens in the morning and at lunchtime.
Results also showed that 26% drink their last cup of caffeinated coffee between 2pm and 5pm.
However, more than half (56%) also said they would like to indulge in a coffee later in the day if the caffeine didn’t affect their sleep quality.
