For many, this will be an innovation too far, for if there's one thing we Britons are protective about, it's our cups of tea.

But tea industry disrupter YumCha has created a new way to brew our favourite, comforting hot drinks with its No More Tea Bags "liquid instant tea".

Coming in an aerosol can and doing away with the faff of teabags and small office spoons, No More Tea Bags is currently available in black tea, Earl Grey and Jasmine flavours.

Those in need of tea simply have to squirt the foam into a mug, add hot water (perhaps milk and sugar too) to create the "perfect cup of tea".

If you need a tea fix stat you can rest assured spray tea will get you your fix as soon as possible - it is brewed for five minutes before it goes into the can to ensure the flavour is at its best, but for tea drinkers all that's needed is mug of boiling water.

The Surrey-based YumCha Drinks company has previously specialised in instant iced tea, but with its new offering it is moving ahead of the curve - Tetley named spray tea as one of the new-fangled forms our morning brews could take in its Future of Tea report last month.

Over the next decade tea could also come in jelly, tablet, sorbet and syrup forms.
