I had an easy mission with General Kenobi. We were to go to Dantooine on a diplomatic mission. The mission it self was easy. The hard part was keeping up with Kenobi and his fascination with trying different teas. He had picked up this habit from Qui-Gon, who had learned it from his Master, Count Dooku.
We were told there was a man, who lived in the remote town of Mercy in on Dantooine who was considered by all to be one of the system’s foremost authority on tea. This man also was reported to have developed the most fantastic tasting tea anywhere in the galaxy.
Kenobi scoffed at the idea, thinking that no tea came out of the remote provinces, because there was no way to grow it in such a dry region. We were informed that the tea was not grown but was brewed from the fur of a creature called a Kolo.
We hired a guide to take us deep into the remote region of Dantooine. Once in the town, we found the only cantina, and ordered a cup of the mysterious beverage.
The cup was placed before him. General Kenobi spent many moments noting the color, the aroma, and the viscosity. He took a small sip. It was good! He then followed with a big mouthful, and was suddenly gagging and spitting, clutching at his mouth.
"What is this?" he exclaimed, holding up a handful of what appeared to be short, coarse threads.
"Oh, that's Kolo fur," replied the bartender.
"You mean to tell me that you don't strain out the fur?" asked Kenobi, incredulous.
"Of course not," replied the bartender, "The Kolo tea of Mercy is never strained!"
