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 Earl Grey tea, which is a "premium black tea from Sri Lanka, flavored with oil of bergamot, a citrus fruit." Earl Grey is one of my very favorite teas, and Adagio's is pretty much the best I've tasted.
Last evening I officially abandoned Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll. You'll see a mini-review explaining my reasons for not fininshing in a few days. I started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. I am probably the last person on earth who hasn't read this. I was hooked within 5 minutes of listening. An old man has gotten a mystery birthday present of a pressed flower every year for more than 40 years. Every year he tells the police, specifically the chief superintendent, now retired. Every year, there is no answer as to who is sending the gifts. And so starts the novel.
Frankly, I have no clue what tea these two old men would drink. The characters introduced in the next chapters are young and are drinking booze. But, hey! I love Earl Grey and I'm loving the book, so what more do I need?
Thanks to everyone who commented about this meme (see my July wrap-up post). I've decided to keep it as long as it is fun for me and as long as I can still buy tea samplers.
August is the holiday / vacation month in the Northern Hemisphere, so perhaps you're not drinking tea but maybe some exotic rum cocktail while sitting on the beach reading. So let me know: What are you reading? What's in that glass or mug?
