Extra strong tea for heroes...
Tesco has worked with the original tea blenders, to recreate Captain Scott's Extra Strong Blend, which was supplied in tea chests on his 1910-1913 Terra Nova expedition. Amazingly those original chests are still the existence today in both the Discovery Hut, at Hut Point and Scott's Hut, at Cape Evans. Heroic Captain Robert Scott and his team died after reaching the South Pole in January 1912 and discovered they have been beaten to their goal by their Norwegian rivals

Below is the actual wording from a letter by Scott; headed British Antarctic Expedition 1910, dated 14th October 1909

Dear Sirs,
With reference to your letter of yesterday's date offering to supply the British Antarctic Expedition 1910 with the total quantity of tea required, and to deliver the same in chests free on board the Ship, I beg to inform you that I have much pleasure in accepting your generous offer. A further communication will be sent regarding the quantity required and the date of delivery. Thanking you for your patriotic support

I am Yours Faithfully
R Scott Captain. R.N
