Thread Name: BS: Tea Bags or Loose Tea?
Subject: RE: BS: Tea Bags or Loose Tea?
I worked in charge of gangs of modern navvys for a while, about twelve to a gang.

Tea making was interesting. A large pan of water was brought to the boil and a packet of tea was poured in. Milk and sugar was poured straight into the resultant mix and the men dipped their (enamel) mugs into it.

Did it taste foul? No idea I never touched the stuff!!
