THERE’S nothing like a good cuppa whether you’re at home, work... or Afghanistan.

Soldiers in the warzone have praised a Portsmouth tea company, All About Tea, after it sent 2,000 luxury blends out to troops.

Major Jonathan Buxton, who has even got the Americans into having a cup or two, said: ‘I just love a good cup of tea. I think most British soldiers do. There is nothing like it to lift the spirits.’

Andrew Gadsden, 35, who started Fratton-based All About Tea, said: ‘When you’re a long way from home a good cup of tea can make a big difference to your day.’
