Oil seen from above

It almost looks like an empty glass, but it is not so. It is shaped like a tulip with no stalk: it is the official oil-tasting glass, the colour of which is blue. Blue, because professional tasters are terrified of colours. Their heart starts to pound, and aghast they repeat “oh my, oh my, I saw its colour, I saw its colour!”. Distressed, they plead their right not to be lured by the beauty of oil and its enchanting shades and colours. It’s all a matter of point of view
