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'm drinking English breakfast tea from Adagio Teas. They describe it this way: "Black Keemun tea from the Anhui region of China. . . . [P]rized for its rich smoky flavor, and sumptuous aroma." As always, I drink it black and unsweetened.
I just finished listening to A Killing Frost (aka The Third Day, The Frost) by John Marsden, which is the third in the Tomorrow series. I'm not quite sure what genre these books are. I guess I would call them alternate history. In brief, Marsden imagines what would happen if Australia were invaded by enemy forces and then follows a group of high schoolers who have managed to avoid capture. (For more, see my review of The Dead of the Night.) This book takes place about six months after the invasion, and the teens are forced to face the consequences of their guerrilla tactics. My review will be posted in a day or so.
Because the kids must scavenge for supplies, I suspect that they are drinking a rather common tea. And even if they aren't, they have become nostalgic for the comforts of their old life. So English breakfast tea is an excellent match, and the teens would approve.
What have you been reading or listening to this week? What do you pour into your glass or mug when you sit down for a good read?
