As a child I didn't understand the obsession with tea, but looking back I realise you had to boil the lake water to drink it safely, so you might as well have a cuppa.
Otherwise we'd have the books dealing with constantly boiling water and then leaving it to cool somewhere. Or adding a few drops of bleach.
Finding milk sources is also documented by AR in 'Racundra's First Cruise', and the 'Third' book too.
