      Because its warm (and i like warm), it tastes nicer than coffee and it helps me wake up (I like staying asleep and sleeping late if I can, which isn’t often anymore…). Do you like tea?

      Tim Peake also likes a cup of tea! They are flying some tea bags specially for him and he has been working out how to brew it and sip it in space. They have developed a special mug just for doing this – see if you can spot Tim drinking his tea wit this special mug when he gets to the space station!
