88th night;

*Tonight is 88th night, 八十八夜*
I love green tea;
A cup of Shincha (first flush) tea which harvested on the 88th day after Spring Equinox is believed to bring a person a year of good health. Might be as the weather gets mild (no frost) and about time all the plants and vegetation are beginning to spring up. Now there are some tea picking events in Japan.  Haha, my mother used to buy 新茶 Shincha for this day.  A cup of green tea helps me to start a day and inevitable morning drink.
