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 Bigalow's Constant Comment. This best-selling tea is flavored with cinnamon and citrus and is available in tea bags everywhere. Apparently it was developed in the 1940s and helped launch the Bigalow Tea Company! My mom used to drink this tea when I was kid.
This week I'm listening to Dead as a Doornail by Charlaine Harris. It's the fifth book in the Sookie Stackhouse / Southern Vampire series. The second season of the HBO television series True Blood premired on Sunday, and I was inspired to read more about my favorite telepathic cocktail waitress. What's not to love about Sookie and her boss, Sam, and her vampire friends Bill and Eric? In fact, I have so much Sookie love, I started the Sookie Stackhouse Reading Challenge! Maybe you'll consider joining in the the fun.
Constant Comment is perhaps a little fancy for Sookie and the citizens of Bons Temps, Louisianna. Would Merlotte's bar or Sookie's grandmother serve flavored tea? But it's as good of a match as I have in my house, so it'll have to do!
Not into vampires? That's ok, I'd still like to know what you're reading this week. And what's in that glass or mug by your side?
