    Well now I'm pissed. So phuqqing pissed I had to call Don up just now and chew his ass. Sumbidge sent me two pounds of Rosado wrapper. Okay, so that, I ordered, I can understand that. But then he took it on himself to stick a big fistful of this T-13 viso riding along with it. Holy Schidt! That's dream leaf, man, that stuff. Small leaves. I rolled four up with an olor binder and the rosado wrapper. Burnt it just now in the garage. Made me a gar that's a dead ringer for a Big Payback. One of my fave store boughts. Fabulous. That's not right. Just not right. He knows I have way too effin much leaf as it is. I mean, I physically have zero more space in my office to even store any more whatever. Now how do I avoid buying more? Where do I put it?

    I chewed his ass and he just laughed at me. Just not right.

    I need help. You guys need to buy it all up before I have to.

    I'm not kidding.

    Wow. Sample opportunity. Hopefully their photographer is just shitty and that stuff isn't really avocado puke greenbrown. Plus they got their Jalapa back in stock. Naturally I just ordered last week, damn it....

    WLTs looks like that too until you work with it. Really curious if they bought from the same place. I will be buying a sample with my next purchase to see how similar they are

    The timing of it sure makes it seem like they share at least the supplier of that stuff, who suddenly got a hot new item.

    What would you say is the appeal of this stuff? When I read notes like "flavorless," "grass" and "hay," the attraction is not real obvious to me.

    The appeal is mostly visual. It is gorgeous leaf. It has a grassy sweetness, imagine the smell of fresh cut grass or a freshly cut hay field. The aroma is there but the flavor doesn't transfer over as strongly. It isn't overly grassy or overly sweet. It plays well with other leaf, but I like it with a strong filler blend.

    Thanks. I pretty much hate grass and hay notes but maybe I could overpower it with a blend and make it work. Sounds like you have done such. I'll def chuck a tenner at a quarter-pounder. Do you think the WLT stuff you've tried is from CT Shade leaf? Habano?

    It is hard for me to say. It's kinda like a cross between the two leading me to believe it is ecuadorian like the LO stuff
