What a cup of tea!
story posted on 01/07/2010 - about
When I saw this tea at the supermarket years ago I just had to buy it! I just love the picture of a swagman waiting for his billy to boil to make tea. Rather than keeping my tea in the cupboard, I have decided to display this cosy campfire scene on my kit...
