Most British people take tea bags with them when they go on holiday or a business trip. British people are famous for tea. They need their cup of tea even when travelling overseas. A survey found that tea bags were the most popular comfort item Britons took abroad. The survey asked over 1,000 holidaymakers what they needed most when visiting other countries. Around 55 per cent said tea bags. Other items Britons packed are toilet paper, fluffy towels, potato chips and bacon. They also take their favourite biscuits, perhaps to dip into their morning cuppa.
One person who took part in the survey 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 who live down the road from me." Another person wondered why people needed to take tea bags. She said: "We should try the food and drinks of the culture we are visiting." The survey said: "It's really interesting to see what holidaymakers decide to take with them." It added: "A fifth of people admitted they pack too much."
