People working together drink to the end of boredom (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

team

Here is my best explanation:

'people working together' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'drink to the end of boredom' is the subsidiary indication.

'drink' becomes 'tea' (tea is a kind of drink).

'to the end of' says to take the final letters.

The last letter of 'boredom' is 'm'.

'tea'+'m'='team'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for team that I've seen before include "Side; harness (horses)", "Group pulling together", "People working together", "Side in sporting event", "See 22", "Crew", "Mate with game group", "Group working in combination", "Squad; side" and "One side in a game".)
