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 Peets Masala Chai. This black tea "incorporates pungent Assam and South India broken leaf teas blended with cinnamon, ginger, cardamon, cloves, and fresh-ground tellicherry peppercorns." It's been cool enough to drink hot tea again in the evenings. I know you're supposed to brew this very strong and then add milk and sugar, but I drink it black as is, brewed medium. The aroma is wonderful.
Okay, I have to be honest here. Neither John Ceepak nor Danny Boyle would ever order a pot of Marsala Chai. Coffee, yes; a soda, yes; and maybe even a beer. I don't see either of them as a tea drinker. But I love this chai tea, and it's a nice drink for the cool evening no matter which book is playing through my earbuds.
Did you read or listen to anything interesting this week? Are you thinking ahead to cooler evenings and a mug of hot cider or maybe even hot chocolate?
