I learned this week that the beaver castor gland is used in Rasberry Candy as a flavoring..This is their anal gland that they use to spray their scent onto things to mark their territory..It is removed and dried then added to many things including our food and drink..Yuck..Yuck...Yuck...All natural flavorings well it is all natural..
All natural flavorings good Especially added to teas, food Beaver's castor gland Is source of such a flavoring Used in candy unwavering Now starved after

Awesome poem; I love tea but I'm not sure I would want to try a beaver's castor gland...maybe, if I wasn't told what it was beforehand! Well at least it isn't BEIBER's castor gland--all the more worse! Best of luck in the contest. Always, Laura

Sara, I never heard of a beaver's castor gland. Is it extracted from real beavers? As a tea drinker, this could add more flavor to my cuppa. Very nice tail rhyme. Winning wishes for you, dear. Love, Carolyn
