When the Miskells had the Station Mass at their house the priest was given the tea leaves in a mug without any water. “I don’t want the tea-leaves, it’s the water I want”. They had thrown out the water leaving just the leaves. A noggin was used for drinks and was a wooden vessel with a straight on the side.
