I’ve just bought the latest issue of War Cry, the weekly mag of the Salvation Army. No! I’m not about to join and resign membership of TWS. But something in the latest edition piqued my interest: that word Tannins!
It’s not the sort of subject one would expect to read in a magazine for tee-totals. When people talk about tannins, my eyes usually glaze over as I’ve never seen a tannin. Certainly not in a bottle of wine.
But War Cry explained the origin of the word. Apparently it’s a Jewish word meaning dragon. No wonder I’ve never seen one. I’m grateful for the explanation.
