Nathan Garner is now known as Nathan Yorkshire Tea Garner.

The 31-year-old has renamed himself after his favourite tea brand, because he drinks so much of it.

The tea fanatic hails from Sheffield, Yorkshire, and drinks at least 15 cups a day. He is so besotted with the beverage that he has even been known to knock back two cups before he has brushed his teeth.

According to a story published in The Mirror UK, Garner says, "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'.

He actually though that it would be a great idea and at lunch got out his phone and went onto a website and got rid of ‘Derek’.

Derek was Nathan's middle name.

The tea enthusiasts employers even posted about his name change on Twitter.

"1of our GRC team has changed his name from Nathan Garner to Nathan Yorkshire Tea Garner you dont have to be mad to work in grc but it helps!," wrote Chiltern GRC, which "operates in Chesterfield providing both Glass Reinforced and Wet Cast concrete products nationally".

Laura Burton, senior brand manager at Yorkshire Tea, told Munchies that they were flattered by his overwhelming love for a proper brew and could not wait to welcome him to their Harrogate HQ for a tasting and to meet the team.

Nathan drinks his first brew of the day at 4am. He has milk and two sugars.
