my crackerjack prize highlights would be a whole edamame pod out of an 80's large leaf sheng cake that I pulled out of the pot arround brew five.

also a large rodent tooth out of a more recent high end boutique sheng. Thankfully that didn't make it into the pot.

hehe yeah I was wondering where the rest of the rodent was too...

Suppose it's not such a big deal really, I mean usda lets rat hair and droppings etc into our food at set limits so a tooth doesn't really seem that bad

:o :shock: :o :roll: :cry: I am now scared of pu. If I ever see a tooth or a hopper leg in a whole cake.....I would just run. I wouldn't touch let alone steep any part of the cake. Btw, is that Han Solo brick for real? It looks like ....pu gel? :roll:
