What? No Tea After World War III?!

Call it the Great Earl Grey Panic of 1954: Recently declassified documents provide evidence that British contingency planners were concerned that tea supplies would be rapidly exhausted in the event of an atomic attack on the United Kingdom. Read the brief news article here.

If any of the fine blokes at London's National Archives would care to provide CONELRAD with copies of the "tea memos," we will post them immediately. In consideration of such a courtesy, CONELRAD will send over some of our lousy American tea - a gift that might barely be suitable for wartime rations.
