According to the survey by baking sugar company Whitworths Sugar, the good old cuppa is so sacred that one fifth of women questioned would rather give up sex than tea.
That's not all they're willing to give up either. A third would ditch Facebook completely if it meant they could have tea in their lives, while a quarter were willing to lose alcohol, and even chocolate.
Yes, chocolate. What would a cup of tea be without a kit kat.
Plus it turns out we're really particular about our tea, as almost half of us would rather make it ourselves than trust someone else with the important task.
And the perfect cup of tea involves freshly brewed water, fresh tea leaves left to soak for exactly three minutes, and then milk and sugar stirred in last.
In case you were wondering.
