Brew Kit

Following on from the thread Survival is All About a Good Cup of Tea I have been inspired to make a brew kit which would enable you to make this cup of tea!

The kit contains

  • 1 Tin Mug
  • 1 Packet of Soup
  • Matches and Striker in plastic bags
  • Mini Wax stove
  • Tea Bags
The stove is based upon this idea
but using a tea light holder instead of a shoe polish tin.
I'll add some sugar sachets when I go to a cafe next. The plastic bottle is actually a chewing gum container.

A stick could be broken into a triangle in order to support the cup above the mini stove.
Update: The little candle stove took slightly under 8 minutes to boil the cup of water. I'm really impressed but it did leave it very sooty.
