Price rise may cause storm in teacup!

Droughts in the major tea producing countries such as India and Sri Lanka and an increase in demand will mean prises of tea could rise by 10-15% in the next couple of weeks.
Tea production in South Africa has fallen by 10%.

165,000,000 cups of tea are drunk in Britain each day, so tea is as popular as its ever been, but with prices of milk and sugar also having risen recently, tea is going to get more expensive no matter how you prefer to brew it.

Transportation and packaging costs are also increasing, and there has been political unrest in Kenya - the worlds biggest black tea exporter. This unrest has meant that there has been a backlog of tea waiting to leave Kenya’s ports and is linked to increasing labour and fuel costs in the country. China are demanding and consuming more tea than India for the first time too which will result in the halting of falling tea prices in the UK.

If prices to go up as they are predicted to it would be good news for the tea farmers who have been experiencing a drop in profits over the last 10 years. All major tea brands have schemes (such as the Rainforest alliance) that aim to help tea farmers and the areas that they work in, so a modest increase in prices such as this can only help them and their local areas.

Tetley tea is one of Britians oldest brands of tea, and was one of the first brands to introduce their tea in teabags after they were invented in America in 1920. Since 1953 Tetley has been sold in bagged form and providing refreshment for everyone.

Tetley tastes better when its made by you, how you like it made. Lots of studies have been undertaken to find the best way of making tea, and there isn't one 'best' way. Made with or without milk, Tetley tea tastes great. There have been numerous in-depth studies conducted on thousands of people which prove that drinking tea has positive benefits on health, regardless of the inclusion of milk. Adding milk delivers extra calcium, zinc and potassium. Tea is a naturally rich source of antioxidants and is a natural source of theanine so why not go to buy yourself some and put the kettle on!!

One other thing to remember is that its commonly forgotten that tea is 99.5% water and is actually hydrating. Many of us believe that as tea contains caffeine it is a diuretic. What we don't realise is that unlike coffee, the level of caffeine in a cup of tea is so low that you can have up to 6 cups per day without any duiretic effect. Another brilliant thing about Britains favourite beverage!!

most-missed-teas sells one the countries biggest selling and favourite teas - Yorkshire Tea.

Over ten million cups of Yorkshire Tea are enjoyed every single day.

Yorkshire tea always buy the very best tea for their blends and you can really taste the difference, but there’s more to Yorkshire Tea than just the great taste.

Taylors of Harrogate is one of the few remaining family tea and coffee merchants in the country. Founded in 1886 by an enterprising Yorkshire tea merchant, Charles Taylor, the business quickly gained a reputation for the quality of its teas and coffees.
Charles recognised that regional variations in water affected the taste of tea, so he started to blend his teas specially to suit different water types. The company still blend tea in the same way today and make sure they work in an ethical way to help save the worlds forests too.

Back in 1990 when Yorkshire tea launched their Trees for Life appeal, they really wanted to give something back to the communities they depend on for their tea leaves, and hit upon the idea of planting trees. They provide shelter and food for people and, in the long term, tree planting helps combat environmental problems like soil erosion too. Yorkshire tea didn’t want to plant just a few acres – instead they decided to plant one million trees by the turn of the century.

Nine years later, with the support of Yorkshire Tea drinkers and the help of their main partner Oxfam, they planted their millionth tree and didn’t want to stop there. To date, the company have planted over three million trees on four continents, and donated more than £1 million to Oxfam.
Now they want to do even more. Because of the staggering rate at which our planet’s rainforests are being cut down, planting trees just isn’t enough. Up to 25% of the world’s carbon emissions come from the destruction of these precious trees. The positive impact of protecting them would be phenomenal – so we’re aiming to save as many as possible.

And you can help! By buying Yorkshire Tea, you too can help the environment and make sure that the people who grow the tea used get a good life and live in an environment that is managed and sustainable.

Yorkshire Tea (both in bag and loose form) are available from
