Lennon Toolbar fountain pen ink inspired by winter food. Marinated Silkie chicken was the model for this ink color.
Ever seen a Silkie chicken? Silkie chickens are not black (as the ink might lead you to think) They are beautiful snow white chickens. In Taiwan they are often eaten because they are said to give you energy.
In the Chinese imperial palaces, they often ate Silkie in the royal dishes that were served. Silkie represents a piece of nobility.
When the Monsoon announces itself in Taiwan, all kinds of gadgets come into the store to keep warm.
Thermal underwear, hand warmers, down jackets, hats, gloves and extra thick socks to protect you well against the cold from the north.
What many people may not know is that there is an ultimate weapon against the cold that will definitely keep you warm! A good winter meal consisting of a tasty stew or soup is the most traditional and effective way in Taiwan to dispel the cold.
Wok some ginger and chicken over high heat and add rice wine to stew. Add wolfberries and finally some cabbage and you have a delicious warm soup to get through the winter day.
Note that no matter how cute the names are. The inks contain no edible products and the stories surrounding the ink are of course just fiction. The sesame oil ink does not smell like sesame oil either.
