The nationwide backlash against the sweet stuff has smashed the milk and two sugars stereotype, a poll of 2,000 people revealed.

Tea with milk and two sugars stereotype is now a thing of the past

The survey found 42 per cent of adults have their tea plain, while another nine per cent use sweetener instead of sugar.

Just 31 per cent do take sugar — 16 per cent have two, 15 per cent only one.

14% don’t drink the national cuppa
