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.
This week I discovered Adagio Teas thanks to Julie from Booking Mama. I'm drinking Decaf Tropics: "Decaf Orange tea with pieces of mango and chunks of pineapple. Decaffeinated using a natural CO-2 process, that allows leaves to retain their delicate shape and flavor." It tastes like a fruitier orange tea and is very warming. I'm drinking this one black with no sweetener.
I'm listening to A Cold Day for Murder by Dana Stabenow. It's the first in a mystery series that takes place in Alaska. This story is set in the weeks before Christmas and it's cold--I mean cold. Everyone wears head-to-toe down suits and gets around on snowmobiles. The story and the descriptions of the national park and the people who live there are engaging. The protagonist, Kate Shugak, is an Aleut and ex-investigator for the district attorney in Anchorage; she is drawn into a missing person case by her old boss and the FBI.
I just had to go with something warming to counteract the chill of the Alaskan early winter. Ahhhh, the tropical flavors do the trick well.
