Yes, the tea was from British "24 Hour Rations" that Norge traded me.

Was a nice snack with those awesome fruit biscuits they have.

Hello kman,

I'm still single so that gives me lots of chances for comsuming the white tea :roll: . I opened up another bag from the 1996 B ration
and borrowed a camera from one of my buddies around. This is what it could look like. So you know what you're missing :wink:
This one had a dishwasher aftertaste, kinda "yuk"

Hi norge,

To answer your question: the rest was quite ok. The main entrees were good, for looks, smell and taste. The corned beef hash is not my favorite but ok.
The drinks were in the state they are supposed to be, I guess. that is, granulars for the coffee and powder for the lemon- choco drink, beef stock. The instant tea wasn't rock hard :) but I guess it's due to the mixed ingredients of it that it'll turn harder over time(into crumbs).
I'll keep you guys informed when I try the other british 96 rations. Never had an arctic one norge, but if I come across any I'll save the caramel for you :wink:

Somehow I'm always stuck with the sugar since I don't use it and appearantly it's a poor trade :(

take care, Nawt

There's a guy on Ebay selling an old 1992 British arctic ration right now! ... :IT&ih=020

Trust me, the Rollo's are not eadible anymore (in fact they smell a little bit bad). The ration offered should only be used as a collectors item.
How do I know?? Well, this seller is... me!
