There’s nothing like a good cup of tea to bring people together. We bond over a cuppa, share our news and our woes – but the simple cup of tea also divides the nation with Brits having strong opinions on what makes the perfect brew.

To get to the bottom of the debate, thortful release their new Pantone tea scale to reveal what your brew says about you. Featuring eight tea types including:

1: Black tea

The rule-breaker, you’d prefer to be a hipster drinking black coffee, but you hate coffee. And you quite possibly just forgot to buy the milk.

2: Overstewed

One of those people with very strong opinions that you absolutely love to share with anyone and everyone.

3: Builder’s brew

The classic British brew. You’re a classic salt of the earth type – dependable and cool-headed. You’re actually pickier about your tea than anyone else on this scale.

4: Perfectly balanced

The ultimate goal: the perfect brew. You’re highly confident, and know exactly what you like and how to go about getting it.

5: Bit beige

Not to insult you, but there’s not a lot about you as a person. You’ll watch exactly one episode of your latest boxset and be in bed by 9pm.

6: Slapdash

You’re a bit haphazard – you probably didn’t leave this to stew anywhere near long enough.

7: Vanilla wafer

You may not be the sharpest spoon in the tea drawer, but you know what you like – and what you like is a cup of tea with only a passing familiarity with a tea bag.

8: Milky water

You just want to drink milk. Good for your calcium, but let’s not pretend this is a cup of tea. Don’t be this person!
