I am not only a keen hiker but I'm also a tea addict, and for for me the two go hand in hand. Whether its a Thermos at the top of a mountain or the first brew when setting up camp, I love it all. I'm not the only one with an affinity for the outdoors and tea so I thought that I would document some other more famous hiking/tea partnerships.
John Muir has a number of quotes claiming tea to be among his minimum needs.
Even with his famously pared down equipment requirement, when he felt the urge to strike out into the outdoors tea always featured.
Yet another reason Muir is one of my heros. More tea dedications to follow.
