Tea for Two

Boiling water for tea in Tallarook State Forest on one of our weekly picnics in the bush.

The water boiling unit is an Eco Billy. When I was young in New Zealand, almost every home had one. Outdoor workers boiled their water in much larger units. What’s great about them is only small twigs, grass and leaves are all that are needed. The water in our .70 litre unit boils in less than 5 minutes and the fire is “safe.”
