Today rather than tonight...
Read an article on BBC News yesterday about putting a tiny pinch of salt in tea. A tea obsessed American professor figured out that salt blocks the taste receptors for the bitter flavour elements so you really notice the sweeter flavours. I've just tried it with a cup of Yorkshire Gold expecting it to be 🐂💩. Damn - she's right!

It’s the same theory as to why salted caramel tastes so good for so many people.

On the subject of Yorkshire Tea, I just found out Taylor's do a Toast and Jam flavoured tea. Sounds bizarre but will need to give it a try.


As for tonight, I'll be opening a bottle of Tamnavulin to go with my Haggis, Neeps and Tatties.
