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 Keemun Rhapsody tea, which has "taste bud entrancing cocoa notes, biscuity nuances, a whispering fruitiness and a flickering shadow of classic Keemun smokiness." The good news is that the tea was not too smoky in aroma or flavor. I've tried it only once, and I'm not sure I brewed it long enough because I didn't really taste much more than basic black tea.
I just started listening to Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll. In fact, I haven't gotten much past the setup. The book starts the day after the wedding and then flashes back to right after Elizabeth's and Jane's engagements have been announced. Lydia comes home for a visit to flaunt the great knowledge and wisdom she believes she's obtained now that she's a married lady.Wickman has been left alone in Newcastle to ponder his current state of affairs. I am a bit undecided about whether I'm going to like the book. It's 22 hours of audio, and the first hour hasn't really clicked with me. I hope it doesn't end up as aDNF.
Because Darcy is one of the richest men in England, he and Elizabeth could have any tea they wanted. As long as the tea was brewed fresh from loose leaves, I don't think I could have gone wrong. I'm not sure Darcy would have approved of a cuppa made from a teabag.
What are you reading or listening to this week? Anything gripping? And what are you drinking to cool off this summer or warm up this winter (depending on which side of the equator is home).
