I was talking with my coworker again about our mutual love of all things bookish and tea. For me, I like to drink tea (I’m not a huge coffee fan, I will drink it if I’m desperate but I like it weak and sweet) all the time but especially when I’m reading! I started talking about making a list of tea I like to drink in general (because I associate tea with books, get it?) and she came up with the idea of pairing what I think of as the ideal tea with one of my favourite books. Mind blown. So I’m going to attempt it this time and see what it’s like to make this post!
Disclaimer: I might be linking specific brands of tea instead of a generic flavour. I’m not making any money from this post (it isn’t sponsored and I’m not an affiliate anywhere, I stopped doing that a long time ago), so if you choose to purchase a tea that’s up to you, I’m just using a brand to illustrate a point.
A Natural History of Dragons by Marie Brennan x Earl Grey
I love, love, love Earl Grey. It’s one of my favourite teas of all time and I drink it every day, easily. My family finds it too strong but I crave it constantly.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett x Peach Iced Tea
I know it’s clichéd and it’s a caricature but when I went to the south they were always shoving the stuff down me! I drink Peach Iced Tea all the time because The Bahamas is so hot and I think it’s a good pair with The Help.
Scarlet by Marissa Meyer x Magic Dragon (David’s Tea)
One being that it’s a red tea and the book is called Scarlet. Plus the name! Here is the ingredients list for Magic Dragon: apple, rosehip, hibiscus and blackberry leaves. Yummm!
