It has to be perfect, I think today i'm finally going to make it. The water, first of all is a matter of great importance in order to obtain a good quality infusion. The best being rain or snow, the next in quality is mountain spring water, all can be used. Next, the lid should fit perfectly...yes, its ok. The surface must be well polished...yes, yes it is. The nozzle and the handle must be proportionate...yes, they are. They should be designed to make the tea pour cleanly, without falling or dripping down the outside of the kettle. Today is the day, finally the hummingbirds will come, I can feel it. Oh no..but what if the water is too hot? or too cold? Maybe I should put some sugar in it? or do they prefer honey? Oh no! I have no honey! I have to go buy some honey now. Maybe tomorrow I will get a visit from them. Yes, tomorrow will be the day, I really believe tomorrow will be the day.
