IF YOU THINK TEA HAS SHOT UP IN PRICE NOW LOOK AT HOW IT SHOT UP IN THE 1700’s…

According to The Sun Newspaper ‘FANS of a cuppa are the latest to be hit by the cost of living crisis as the price of tea has soared by almost a third.

The price of teabags, loose leaf, builder’s brew and herbal remedies have all gone up in recent months, according to new research by The Grocer.’

Its research covered the “big four” supermarket chains over a period of eight weeks, analysing the prices of major brands as well as supermarket own-brand brews.

However, due to the high cost of tea in the 1700s, which went up to 119%, it was often smuggled into the country. Smugglers added dry leaves, bark and brick dust to swell their profits.

Let’s hope we don’t need to keep our eye on smugglers in 2022.
