    It was in the autumn that I first purchased this blend. I stood on the sidewalk outside the tobacconist shop, windswept fall leaves rustling at my feet as the setting sun stained the sky a blood red and the darkness of twilight crept in. I felt a nameless dread as I pondered the opening of this tin, and alas, I named myself a coward when I flung this accursed thing to the back of my cellar. There it sat for months untold; whispering to me, tempting me. My mind became a twisted, hollow echo of what it once was...consumed with the thought of the Mad Fiddler, biding its time in the back of the cellar. Finally, I could take no more...the glass jars I had ordered all the way from the lands of the Amazon (with prime shipping, a most fiendish ploy) arrived and I knew they would be strong enough to contain the essence of this flake. Finally, with maniacal delight, I lit up a bowl and found myself whisked away. First I was in an exotic bazaar filled with incense and unnameable things lurking just out of sight. Then with a note of cinnamon, I was in a place of bonfires and hay bales, silhouetted forms swaying round and round in ecstatic dance. Visions of Victorian opium dens and non-Euclidean vaults of uncharted worlds. Spicy and savory, maddeningly delicious with a taste that will haunt the unwary piper for the rest of their days. In other words, it's good stuff!
