Abdullah Jadallah was a Palestinian by the fate of his birth.
He served as an administrative assistant for the British Army in Mandatory Palestine between the years of 1930-1948.
He would occasionally, too, supply British soldiers with weapons on the field.
Abdullah drank tea with milk, a ritual acquired from his time with the British army. After his time in the service, he would reintroduce the practice to subsequent generations in his family. Loose leaf tea is brought to a boil, then diluted, and slightly sweetened with the mixture of milk. Tea with milk is a delicacy for his family, but in large part, it is a practice which creates the illusion of nobility.
