Lipton Tea

I’d like to make my thoughts known on Lipton tea:

It’s terrible stuff.

Sadly it’s all we get here. Produced for the North American market, I believe but I don’t know the origins of the tea itself. Honduras not being a former colony is sadly not awash with fine teas. Coffee is plentiful but makes me a bit wobbly.

We have found that adding two teabags to a cup makes reasonable strength tea, however during a tragic tea crisis at Cantiles field camp we were reduced to making two cups from one bag. Dreadful situation. Used teabags were stored and dried for later use. (Curiously at the same time we had a glut of cheeses and honey.)

We should be able to find some good quality tea in Belize - thank goodness for the Empire!
