Could you pre-mix them and store in the thermos (like coffee)?
Cold milk in tea!? I remember seeing a photo of a WW2 Rudge military motorcycle which had a stainless reservoir fitted around the exhaust manifold . It had a tap at the bottom for the water and a separate chamber for warming milk, just the thing for those long, cold, rainy nights on messenger duty.
I've been drinkin' Tazo English breakfast a lot lately. Good flavor, strong tea taste, and has a good bit of caffeine. However, I'm not against a good pine needle tea or a pot of Mormon tea!
Oh, and I sweeten it with local honey. Maybe add a little lemon.
I like to make good ol Aussie Billy tea whenever I get the opportunity.
The "Billy" is the Aussie slang for a tin pot so you will often hear people say "ill put the Billy on".
Anyway, put a tin of water in a campfire to boil, throw in a palm full of tea leaves, let it draw for a while then bang the tin with a stick to drop the leaves down and serve. Milk, sugar etc.
It just tastes better done on a campfire with an old battered black Billy.
Not too complicated but its a real bush tradition. Goes hand in hand with the other bush icon Damper. Pretty much a Bread baked in the Campfire.
Yep, crapped on enough, on a normal day I usually carry tea bags and coffee packets and a tiny camping stove.
So very true. The only thing it omits to mention is that as a result of ruining good tea, the regular English Breakfast tea (found in our tea bags) we get is really rather poor quality stuff and a pale shadow of the great teas that are available. The only tea that seems to be worse is the English Breakfast tea sold in the US, particularly in hotels. Labelled as 'Twinings' etc but is weak horrible stuff.
Converted to green tea (no milk) some time ago. Also love proper homemade southern iced tea - incredibly refreshing.
have you tried infusing earl grey with gin?(only takes 40 mins) i like rare tea company they have some great teas
favorite movie quote..
"Tea without milk is so uncivilized."-- Colin, The Great Escape (1963)
I'm like the old school guy. A couple of tea bags and a pot of water on the campfire. I drink it straight although if there is any honey around, I'll put some of that sweet nectar in the cup too.
I always have a couple of sachets of Twinings Earl Grey in my EDC bag, but at home... Oh that's where the magic happens.
I like Jasmine flavored tea pearls. I usually get them from a place called Teavanna. My brother use to live in Shanghai and would bring me back the best jasmine flavored tea. I like my tea with NOTHING added.
Many people don't realize that really good tea in China is expensive.
I too carry a couple of satchets of Earl Grey. Haven't used any ion a while but I know where they are if I need me some tea.
