    An interesting idea but one I think has considerable merit.

    There are at least two ways of being lost
    - you don't know where you are (not really that uncommon or dangerous)
    - you don't know where you are and don't know how to get to a familiar place (basically a total disorientation or a serious goof with the map) not a fun situation, been there and done that and I did not even have tea with me.

    On top of Janne's comments on coffee, in Finland the "boiled" coffee is a rough grind and light roast. Coffee is put into boiling water, not boiled for long. Once coffee is added the pot is taken of the heat, some people even add a small amount of cold water to stop boiling, wait a while and drink.

    I remember this thread from years ago and still use the principles today.

    Thanks to this forum I now pass on this advice to my Cubs and Scouts and it has paid off.
    A couple of times they have got lost and remembered to stop and use the opportunity to have a break and reassess things.
    Also the advice of not to walk yourself further into danger but back track to the point where you were last confident you knew where you were.
