(Q) How many cuppas does it take to build a house? (A) 9,500
MOST people will agree that nothing gets done without a cup of tea.
From climbing out of bed in the morning to making it through the busy working day, a cuppa helps keep Britain on its toes. But now a study has revealed exactly how much tea it takes to get a job done.
Building the average three-bedroom semi-detached home takes about 9,500 cups of tea.
For a more ambitious project, such as the £800 million restoration of London's St Pancras station, you'll need a whopping six million cups of tea to keep the "brickies" happy.
