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 Adagio's Thai chai, which the company describes as "Silky sweet coconut and playful bright lemongrass highlight this seductive black tea chai blend. Let the aroma draw you in and you’ll swear you hear it beckoning . . . come closer, just take a sip." It is a yummy tea, and it has been perfect for drinking in the cool of the evening.
I'm listening to A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton. Merry Gentry is a elven princess hiding out in LA pretending to be human. She has been working for the Grey Detective Agency, whose advertising tag is "supernatural problems, magical solutions." Merry is part human and, unfortunately, mortal. Although she's third in line for the throne, she is unlikely to ever rule: The reigning queen (her aunt) wants Merry dead.
Merry was raised at the fey court and lives in LA. She would definitely be into an exotic tea. Thai chai sounds like something she might sip while deciding what to wear before meeting her boyfriend. Or perhaps she'd serve it to a client while they discuss a new case. Regardless, I'm enjoying both the tea and this first in an urban fantasy series.
As always, now it's your turn to tell me what you're reading. What have you been drinking this week? Maybe you've decided on a nice cold beer as your reward for doing yard work.
