Hot proper-tea: coffee’s the top pick for West Yorkshire developer

With Yorkshire being home to one of the most iconic tea brands in the world, employees at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire West have revealed their first choice for hot drinks in celebration of National Tea Day (Sunday 21st April).

The survey interviewed employees both on developments and at head office, and shockingly revealed that 51% of staff surveyed admitted they would opt for coffee over the traditional English Breakfast Tea, which came in at 41%.

According to Tea and Infusions Organisation, a total of 100 million cups of tea are consumed by people in Britain every day.

The leading developer’s employees also revealed their top advice for making the best brew to tie in with National Tea Day. This included adding the hot water first (85%) when making tea, and to leave the tea bag in for between one to three minutes (57%).

Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ builders remained loyal to tea and coffee as only 5% of respondents opted for a fruit or herbal tea as their cuppa of choice.

Sam Wood, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes Yorkshire West, said: “A nice strong cup of tea is quintessentially British and a general go-to when important decisions need to be made.

“We have a number of different helpful moving schemes that need careful consideration for first time buyers, second steppers and downsizers and our experienced team want to make sure that house hunters are aware of all their options.

“Keen homebuyers are always welcome to visit our friendly Sales Advisers who will always be ready to put the kettle on.”

Whilst having important opinions on hot beverages, the employees were also asked about their desirable dunkers.

Chocolate Hobnobs came out on top with 27% of the votes for the best biscuit, closely followed by Chocolate Digestives with 24%.
