In the UK we consume about 130,000 tonnes of tea a year of which at least 95% is in teabag format.
One hectare of tea is planted out with approximately 12,000 tea bushes. Depending on its location these bushes can produce up to 3,000kgs of black tea in a year.
One bush produces 250 grams of black tea a year, which is equal to one pack of Typhoo 80s.
Each bush will take about five days to produce enough tea for a Typhoo tea bag.
Cold tea is good for taking the sting out of sunburn.
Brunettes can add shine to their hair by rinsing it in cold tea.
