Thread Name: oranges and creosote
Subject: RE: oranges and creosote
And I thought that it was going to be the recipe for a new cocktail.
At one time I used to work in a job where amongst other things we erected wire fences and built stiles for footpaths in the countryside. Although wearing protective gloves, our hands and clothes eventually reeked of the scent of creosot by the middle of the day. As a result, cups of tea smelled and tasted of creosote. It is an experience which became almost addictive.
I just wondered if oranges added to the flavour?
