I like a nice cup of tea in the morning

I wonder why it is that the first pot of tea of the day always tastes the best?

~Terri Guillemets wrote - The first sip of tea is always the best... you cringe as it burns the back of your throat, knowing you just had the hottest carpe-diem portion. 

But I don't think that's the only reason.

Tea does our fancy aid,
Repress those vapours which the head invade
And keeps that palace of the soul serene.
Edmund Waller, "Of Tea"

Whatever the reason, that first cup of the day is pure magic.
