I love lilacs. We have a few bushes at home that are always gorgeous during this time of year. I love snipping off a few of the clusters to bring inside just to enjoy the scent.
I would guess that I tried tea by the time I was six. Given my curiosity as a young child and that my father enjoys a pot of Earl Gray tea almost every night after dinner, it was pretty inevitable that I would sample it. Tea with lemon and honey was also a common remedy for scratchy throats and colds when I was growing up. I didn't try loose tea until some time in high school.
Today started with White Tip Oolong, but after one mug of that my shincha order arrived so now I have Fukamushi Sencha Supreme. It is awesome!
