Qat is grown in Kenya.

The plant looks like watercress and tastes like a handful of something pulled at random from the flower garden.

You have to chew a lot of it, a bundle the size of a whiskbroom, and you have to chew it for a long time. It made my mouth numb and gave me a little bit of a stomachache, that’s all.
Maybe Qat is very subtle.

I remember thinking cocaine was subtle, too, until I noticed I’d been awake for three days and didn’t know any of the naked people passed out around me.
