Mission Accomplished... kind of anyway. As intended, we sat in the clouds and sipped hot tea but, admittedly, the tea was bought from a cafe at the bottom and not made on a camp fire. In actual fact, forget making tea, we couldn't even get a small fire started! The damp forest wood just would not burn. We tried using firelighters and tissue paper brought from home, we tried chopping the wood to small pieces, we even tried spraying flammable insect repellant but it just would not catch light. It just wasn't meant to be. Anyway, it didn't dampen our spirits because we had Ambrosia Rice Pudding with us which tastes good hot or cold.
