Summary - Tea arriving in Berneray for the first time.

Iseabail MacMillan was sent a pound of tea from abroad by her brother, Eachann Mòr. Tea had never been seen on the island before. They boiled it in a pan of water, drained it and ate the leaves. They didn't like it and a man suggested they mix it with oatmeal and butter. They managed to eat a little this way.
