A man has named himself after his favourite tea.

Nathan Garner will now be known as Nathan Yorkshire Tea Gardner after he changed his name by deedpoll because he drink at least 15 cups of the beverage a day.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper, he said: "I was at work one day and my mate Billy said, 'chuffin' hell, you drink so much of the stuff you should change your name to Yorkshire Tea'. I thought it was a great idea, so at lunch I got out my phone and went onto the website and got rid of Derek [his middle name]."

And his loyalty to the brand has impressed the company so much that they have invited him up to their headquarters in Harrogate to meet the team and taste the hot drink.

Laura Burton, senior brand manager at Yorkshire Tea, told Munchies that they were "beyond flattered by his overwhelming love for a proper brew. We can't wait to welcome him up to our Harrogate HQ for a tasting and to meet the team."
