Time for Tea. What does your tea say about you?

There is a lot of debate about what makes a great cup of tea: should it be black or very milky? Or perhaps just a little bit of milk and no sugar? It’s up to you. How you have your tea can also be reflective of your personality.

We’ve created this tool to raise awareness of dementia in the UK, because we know taking the time to enjoy a cup of tea and socialising with a dementia sufferer plays a vital role in helping them cope with the challenges of everyday life. Start by selecting one of the options below.

Barely Tea

You’re a dip-in, dip-out kind of tea lover. You might be quite timid and shy but your quick-dunk nature means you’re always looking for that next new thing to try. Your countless life experiences have rendered you wise and they’ve taught you to appreciate the concept of not having too much of a good thing. Because of this you always make the best out of every opportunity when it comes around.

Milky Tea

You are a downright kind-hearted person, but don’t let anyone mistake this for naivety or foolishness because you’re smart and always asking the right questions. You love a good dunking biscuit and have a great sense of humour. Others would describe you as a fantastic friend with a knack for keeping secrets…most of the time.

Builder's Tea

As a builder of a beloved classic tea; sugar, milk and a strong brew describe you perfectly. You’re made of sterner stuff than people realise, but only because of your sweet, smooth and sometimes silly exterior. Whilst you’re not one to shy away from a challenge, you are precarious when it comes to your emotions… in a good way! Once someone has earned your trust, you defrost and become the fun-loving person that you truly are.

Regular Tea

Unlike your tea, there is nothing regular about you. You are a cheeky character whose intelligence makes you one of the most entertaining people to be around. You appreciate critique and guidance and take everything on-board, hence why you follow George Orwell’s tea making instructions to the ‘tea’ (pun-intended)! Not to mention you are a brave soul and when the time comes you can take anything on.

Just Tea

You are a solid, strong, classic black tea. Like your tea, your life contains no nonsense and no faff, making you a fantastic leader. You are particularly talented at removing all unnecessary complications from your life, but this headstrong attitude does not mean you have no heart. Your stoic exterior is not immune to melting and you are intensely loyal; only ever wanting what is best for your loved ones.
