If your an obsessive tea maker/person then join the national obsession with it. This you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnvYymrCn4g will explain handy hinds on tea (never store your tea next to cheese, for example).

Slightly grotesque methods for producing tea en masse are demonstrated – it was wartime, after all -and tea had to be produced by the ocean full. As such, there are some top tips for cleaning that hard-to-reach tap in your tea urn.
Remember: “a dirty tap means dirty tea”. (Robin Baker)

Hilarious! I remember my parents packing their stuff in tea chests.
It was such a super video I had to show to everyone, how life was in the 1940’s 🙂
In 1941 there would have been a lot of tea without sugar. Great pic barb.
Of course that would be true, never thought of that. Thanks re pick, saw it in a shop and had to take a picture for the blog. 🙂
