Today's the day

It was simply the nicest day of the year - warm with a cooling breeze and a clear blue sky. It even smelled good - everywhere. It was the the perfect summer day and we don't get that many of them around here. Seemed as good as any day to open up my stash of Spring Pouchong.
And it was worth the wait. When I made this glorious tea, the most heavenly scent of lilacs arose from the teapot - if a tea ever smelled like summer, this was it. And it tasted wonderful as well - smooth, sweet with a hint of buttery richness. Yeah, I blew a bunch but this stuff is worth every penny. As someone or some book once said, life is too short to drink bad tea.
