Thursday Tea is hosted by Anastasia at Birdbrain(ed) Book Blog. Here's how it works: Tell us what tea you are drinking (and if you like it). And then tell us what book are you reading (and if you like it). Finally, tell us if they go together.
I'm drinking Stash Tea's Pomegranate Raspberry Green Tea. Green tea is good for you (lots of anti-oxidants), and I love the flavors of pomegranate and raspberry. And I drink this tea black (or would that be green?) with no sweetener.
Deadly Nightshade is the first in the Martha's Vineyard series by Cynthia Riggs. The protagonist is ninety-two-year-old Victoria Trumbull. It's summer, and Victoria's granddaughter Elizabeth, newly divorced, comes to the island to work for the harbormaster and to stay for a while. Victoria and Elizabeth soon discover a dead body, and the two women are involved in solving the crime. Although the community is small, it is a vacation destination, so the list of suspects can be far-reaching.
First the tea: This is one of my favorite teas, very yummy hot and equally good as sun tea in the summer. Pomegranate raspberry isn't as good of a match as cranberry would have been, but the pairing isn't bad. Actually, the tea is the better of the two.
I'm only three chapters into the book (which I've started twice), and I'm not sure how much more time I'm going to give it. Tune in next week for either a full review or a mini-post explaining why I'm not finishing the book.
