The debate between coffee lovers and chai lovers has been going on for decades and some people have certain routines that require their favourite choice of beverage. But looks like animals too have these habits.
Residing in Allerton, Liverpool is a 20-year-horse named Jake. This horse is serving the Merseyside Police since the past 15-years and he absolutely loves a cuppa tea.

In fact, he loves his tea so much that he actually waits in his stable for his special big mug of tea to be brought to him before starting the day.
He even has a strict preference as he takes his tea with skimmed milk, two heaped teaspoons of sugar and a little cold water mixed in so it isn’t too hot.

Adding to his habit, the Merseyside Police Mounted Section manager mentioned,
‘I’d definitely describe Jake as a horse with a lot of character. We’ve all learnt his tea order – he’ll deal with one sugar, but is definitely happier when you remember to give him two. If you’re at the side of the stable and he sees you with a mug in your hand, you can guarantee he’ll trot on over to try and steal a slurp.

No comment from Jake there but he’s so humble. Fame won’t change him one bit. pic.twitter.com/CDAUyguTVe
Jake is ready to retire from the force next year, but until then he will be a ‘big’ part of Merseyside Police tea round.
