Meet The Man Who Named Himself After His Favourite Chai

Think you love tea? You've (probably) got nothing on Britain's Nathan Derek Garner. Actually, make that Nathan Yorkshire Tea Garner. The Sheffield tea-drinker loves his chai so much he officially changed his middle name from Derek to Yorkshire Tea, his preferred brand of tea. 

The idea for Mr Garner's unique ode to chai came after a colleague at work teased him over his love for tea. 

"I was at work one day and my mate Billy said, 'Chuffin' hell, you drink so much of that stuff you should change your name to Yorkshire Tea'," The Daily Express quotes Mr Garner as saying.

Mr Garner's surprised employers even tweeted photos of him with his deed poll, proving the legal name change.
 
Mr Garner adds that while some friends and family think the move is a bit "silly," it definitely had his mum laughing out loud.

"Friends and family mainly think it's a bit of a silly thing to do but my mum Cheryl thinks it's great. She laughed out loud when I told her," Mr Garner says.

The tea-lover, who works in a concrete factory, says he has been drinking tea since the age of 12 when he was introduced to the Yorkshire Tea brand by his grandfather.

The 31-year-old says he averages nearly 20 cups of tea a day. 

A brand manager at Yorkshire Tea says the company is "beyond flattered by (Mr Garner's) overwhelming love for a proper brew," according to Munchies.

The company even tweeted a photo of Mr Garner visiting the Yorkshire Tea headquarters.
