Tea During Wartime

What lengths will people go to for a cup of tea? As these two audio clips from the First World War Poetry Digital Archive indicate, they will go to very great lengths indeed.

The clips are excerpts of interviews with British soldiers who served in the trenches during World War I and who relate how they ensured that they would get their tea in those difficult times.

Making tea in front lines. Constructing a small cooker.
Trench life. Making tea in dugouts.

I love stories like these. One reason I always feel Yunnan black tea is unique is, the varietal was developed and largely refined in 1940s during the war time.
