The Perfect Cup of Tea Paired with the Perfect Book

by Rachel Baker on May 13, 2014

Over at Book Riot, Dr. B has paired books with the right tea. My go-to tea right now is a Chi blend – I find that its many different scents and flavor hints goes with just about everything I’m reading at the moment.

Its a fun read and who knows maybe you’ll find a new favorite tea.

I was all set to write a super summery post about my favourite summer hobby: reading. Reading at the beach, reading in the park, reading on my balcony. Summer is a season of reading and prepositional phrases for me.

But it isn’t summer here in Vancouver. It’s some kind of winter weekend transposed into early May. It has poured and poured and poured for the last two days (there have been reports of light snow in some parts of the city). So my thoughts have been less about summer fun and more about, well, tea. Because when it pours outside, it pours inside, too. Teapot, meet book nook. I know you two will get along famously.

I drink a lot of tea, and I read a lot of books, and lately I’ve noticed that some go very nicely together. So here are some pairing ideas for books and teas. These are all ones from my collection (I’m writing this while I stare at my tea cabinet) so I know I’ve missed some good ‘uns — don’t keep them to yourself! Meet me in the comments with your best additions to this list.
