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 Irish breakfast tea, which "smoothly blends the high notes of a high-grown Ceylon with the malty underscore of a hearty Assam." Irish breakfast tea is not overly strong but has a nice flavor. I've been drinking it iced in the afternoon.
I'm about halfway through the audio of Delectable Mountains by Earlene Fowler, which is the twelfth entry in the Benni Harper series. These books are cozy mysteries that revolve around Benni, who runs a folk art museum with artist studios in San Celina, California. She grew up on a ranch outside of town and is currently married to the town's chief of police. In this novel, she discovers a body in the church sanctuary. Fowler has created a great group of characters and interesting mysteries. Plus there's always something to learn about quilting and other crafts.
Benni is pretty down to earth, but she does live in California and knows how to place a complicated order at the local coffee shop. I think that if she were drinking tea, she'd pick something like Irish breakfast--it's simple but just a bit more than ordinary.
As always, I'd like to know what you're reading or listening to this week. And whether you're in the heart of summer in the Northern Hemisphere or hoping winter will end in the Southern, let me know what's in your mug or glass.
