Hull and fellow Yorkshire householders are increasingly brewing indifference rather than tea for tradespeople, a new study suggests.

The average person from the Yorkshire area has only made a typical 10.5 cuppas to reward the likes of builders, plumbers and painters during the past two years.

The dubious accolade of Britain’s stingiest tea makers goes to people from the North East.

They admit to making just eight cups for tradespeople in this timespan, while AA Home Membership’s overall research implies that this long-established practice seems to be going out of fashion.

Nowhere is this more so than among the under-35s.

More than three quarters of this age range (78%) told researchers that they leave tradespeople to their own devices to make their own hot drinks.

Nearly half (43%) of over-65s disagreed, arguing that tradespeople should be rewarded.

West Midlands householders are also still flying the flag for tea and coffee, bucking the national trend. They top the table of most generous brewers by making, on average, 12.5 cups.
