There is now a scale which reveals what your favourite brew says about you...
It’s been a tough year for everyone, but if there’s one thing that’s sure to unite all of us - it's a good cup of tea.
And while we all like our cuppa made slightly differently, it turns out you can learn a lot about someone based on the colour of their brew.
In fact, online greetings card marketplace, Thortful have now come up with a new Pantone tea scale to reveal what your tea says about your personality.
So whether you’re a fan of a Builder’s Brew or you prefer a good splash of milk, here’s what your perfect cuppa reveals…
1: Black tea
If you like to keep things simple with a black tea, you’re a ‘rule-breaker’ at heart, according to the scale.
Thortful say: “You’d prefer to be a hipster drinking black coffee, but you hate coffee. And you quite possibly just forgot to buy the milk.”
We all know someone who leaves the tea bag in just a little too long, and this could mean you have ‘very strong opinions’ that you absolutely love to share with anyone and everyone.
3: Builder’s brew
This is known as ‘the classic British brew’, which means you’re dependable and cool-headed.
Thortful says: “You’re actually pickier about your tea than anyone else on this scale.”
4: Perfectly balanced
The cuppa everyone is dreaming of, which means you’re ‘highly confident, and know exactly what you like and how to go about getting it’.
5: Bit beige
It’s bad news if you like a milky tea, because Thortful’s scale says ‘there’s not a lot about you as a person’.
Apparently, beige tea drinkers watch just one episode of their favourite boxset and are in bed by 9pm.
The ‘haphazard’ tea maker probably didn’t leave their tea to stew for long enough and has been left with a bit of a mess.
7: Vanilla wafer
At least this tea drinker knows what they like, and that’s a tea with very little tea in it…
8: Milky water
No one wants to be caught with this cup of tea - or flavourless milky water…
Thortful also carried out research to reveal how our tea-drinking habits have changed this year, with the search phrase ‘how to make a perfect cup of tea’ growing 250%. It's time to get practising!
