    The last full bowl of my McClellands 5100 (Red Virginia), in a Tsuge straight tapered blast billiard. I put the smidgen left in a small bowl with an English blend, just to not waste it, washed out the jar, and filled it with an ounce of Sutliff Red Virginia from my local B&M. I have several McClellands Virginia blends, two in the tall tins, so I am not out of McC's. I like to make little labels on my printer to identify the leaf in jars.
