Things to do

Make campfire tea

OK, it’s not rocket science, but take a tip from PG tips and only tip the tips into your tea.

  1. At the drinkable tisane garden in the Secret Campsite Lewes, pick off the end of the leaves from the type of tea you want to make – enough to fill the palm of your hand.
  2. In an ideal world you’d pop it in a tea strainer or piece of muslin, but we’ll just chuck it in.
  3. Pour boiling water over the leaves and leave to steep for three minutes. Sup slowly, picking the bits of leaves off your top lip, unless you’ve remembered your tea strainer … which is unlikely on a camping trip.
