Smoking Cascara

Been thinking about ways to permeate the air with the aroma of Cascara tea - that oddly fruity tea that's made from the dried husks of coffee cherries. This cascara comes from the friendly folks at Finca Mauritania in El Salvador.

It's true, the blowtorch and inverted glass is a bit obvious now. I like the aromatics but there's a slight acridity from the burning that's a little off-putting - even though I like it. I'd like to go with the vapor from a Volcano but I haven't earmarked the $650 for one yet.

There's always the PolyScience Smoking Gun I have in storage somewhere around here...
