Tea Break Mission

UK workers are potentially damaging their productivity levels and wellbeing as only a third manage to take a proper tea break according to new research out today.Tea Break

A study of 2,000 British workers, commissioned by Tetley, examined the nation’s approach to tea breaks and found that:

The importance of water

The importance of waterThe importance of water shouldn't be under-estimated; it comprises 70% of the Earth's surface and two-thirds of the human body, with our cells and organs depending on it to function correctly. Put simply – water is essential for us to survive. 

But why? With a number of functions that are fundamental to protect and conserve the body, from protecting the spinal cord and tissues, to transporting oxygen to cells and regulating temperature, water is also the most important factor influencing the body’s method of retaining nutrients. The food we eat is water-soluble and when broken down, valuable nutrients can be easily absorbed and passed around the body through the blood. In addition to ensuring the body can absorb vitamins and minerals, water removes and flushes out toxins that are harmful.

All the taste, without the caffeine

All the taste, without the caffeine Brits are buying more brews out of home than ever before, however, many consumers are unaware of the decaffeinated varieties available from their favourite cuppa. 

With health and well-being higher on the consumer agenda than ever before, operators are under increasing pressure to provide a wide range of taste, strength and flavour options. With 50% less caffeine than coffee, tea is the perfect choice for those wanting to reduce their caffeine intake.

A Very English Breakfast

A Very English BreakfastHave you ever wondered where the phrase ‘English Breakfast’ comes from? Or what makes it different to an Irish or Welsh Breakfast? Read on to discover the history behind this traditional meal, and why Brits’ passion for it remains as strong as ever.

Although tea was first considered an afternoon beverage when it was brought to British shores, it soon became an essential morning serve.

The growth of the morning market

The growth of the morning marketAs consumers’ lifestyles become increasingly busy, and the health benefits of consuming ‘the most important meal of the day’ are realised, the out of home breakfast market continues to grow.

Lack of time is the main reason consumers skip breakfast, so an offer that allows consumers to grab and go, such as tea and a muffin, is the key to winning this morning trade. The number of breakfast occasions in foodservice grew by 8.4 per cent to 1.14 billion year-on-year, according to NPD Crest research, and growth shows no sign of decline. The British trend mimics that of America, where breakfast makes up around a fifth of the out of home market.
