This is what BA say on their website.

Specific restrictions on liquids
Restrictions on the quantities of liquids, gels or pastes are:

付hey must be held in individual containers not exceeding 100ml
付he containers must be carried in a separate, clear-plastic, zip-top or re-sealable bag
付he bag must not exceed 20cm x 20cm (8ins x 8ins) in dimensions
付he bag must not exceed one litre (1.75 pints) capacity
付he bag must be completely closed
付he items must fit comfortably in the bag
付he bag must be x-ray screened separately from other hand baggage at airport security points.
You can purchase duty-free liquids at the airport or on board if your journey is wholly within the EU.

For other journeys and destinations, you should refer to the specific country restrictions.

There's no restrictions on food but if you don't eat it all then you'll probably have to leave it on the plane as the US has a lot of restrictions on what foods can pass through their borders.

(teabags are fine :D )
