Just as has happened with coffee, 'black/white' and 'with/without sugar' is set to become a totally inadequate vocabulary when ordering tea, if trend predictions from Teapigs are anything to go by.
The tea supplier says there is a tremendous opportunity to upgrade the British tea experience by offering a range of products that go way beyond the standard cuppa.
Although there are powdered products on the market for producing the likes of chai lattes, Teapigs advocates using whole leaf tea bags (or tea 'temples' as they like to call their own tea bags) to create tea lattes this winter.
Teapigs tea taster Louise, who in true Madonna style appears to have no surname, says the company offers training and recipe cards which include caffeine-free rooibos caramel lattes and spiced winter lattes.
It's latte alright, but not as we know it.
