What’s better than curling up with a cup of tea and a book? If there’s a cat curled up with you then nothing is better. When ever I settle in to read, for a long time, I make myself a cup of tea, after years of trying out many tea blends, I have found that certain teas go better with certain books. Today I’ll be pairing up a few of my favorite teas with a few of my favorite books.
Berry Blossom White with a thought provoking novel like: Flygirl. This soothing, fruity, white tea is my new favorite and what I was drinking when I read Flygirl one of my best recent reads. And a compelling, well researched, historical fiction novel
Cucumber White with a imaginative read like: Girl on a Wire. I really didn’t think I would like this tea, and I had no idea that I would love Girl on a Wire. It was an unexpected delight, so I’m pairing it with this surprisingly tasty and refreshing tea.
Honey, Vanilla Camomile with a modern fairytale like: Geekerella. Camomile is such a calming tea and is definitely a great staple, I could choose just about any book to go with it. I chose Geekerella because it made me so dang happy. It’s one of the most adorable books.
Peach and Rose with a nice contemporary like: The Color Project. Bee the protagonist is an assistant florist witch makes a floral tea a suitable choice, and I feel like peach tea pairs well with light spring/summer reads. Any fruity blend that has floral notes would go great with this lovely novel.
Peppermint a staple tea with a staple book like: Pride and
Peppermint Prejudice. Pride and Prejudice is story I’ll never grow tired of. There both great classics you can never go wrong with, and that always bring me comfort.
Vanilla Bean macaron with a classic YA novel like: Anna and the French Kiss. I was unsure I would like this tea but it was surprisingly really good! And actually tastes oddly similar to a latte. Anna and the French Kiss is a sweet read, that would pair well with this unique tea.
