Brooke Bond Tea  Cards

From the mid-1950's, no self respecting child would be without at least some Brooke Bond tea cards. Brooke Bond tea was sold in rectangular green packets with an orange label and a paper inner lining. These cards were inserted between the inner and outer wrappers, one per packet. Every relative and neighbour would be encouraged to part with their unwanted cards and some children even slit the tea packet open before it was used to remove the card as soon as it arrived! Later, when tea bags became common, the cards were loose inside the box which the bags came in.

Very educational and a lot of fun, these were a fantastic way to learn a little about a lot.
