Most British people take tea bags with them when they go on holiday. British people are famous for drinking tea. They need it even when travelling. Tea bags are the most popular comfort item British holidaymakers take abroad. A survey found that around 55 per cent of Britons take tea bags with them. Other things Britons take are toilet paper, fluffy towels and potato chips. They also take biscuits - perhaps to dip into their morning cup of tea.
One person explained why he packed tea bags. He said: "I always take my favourite tea bags on holiday. I took them to Thailand. It doesn't matter where I am, the tea bags go with me – even to my parents." A woman asked why people need tea bags. She said: "We should try the food and drinks of the culture we are visiting." The survey also found that 20 per cent of people pack too much into their suitcases.
