I'm about halfway through listening to Graceling by Kristin Cashore. It's a YA fantasy about Katsa, a young girl who is blessed or cursed with a talent for killing. She is used by her uncle King Randa to punish people who have disobeyed him. Never having been bested or even hurt in a fight, Katsa has developed a reputation for being ruthless. In reality, she hates killing and has started to use her grace (her special talent) for good. While on a secret rescue mission, she meets Prince Po, a graceling in his own right, who will change her life forever.
The Tea. I'm drinking Adagio's candy cane tea. This is one of the best teas I've had for warming up on a cold winter's night. The pieces of candy cane provide just the right amount of sweetness, minty flavor, and aroma. Even Mr. BFR loves it. Here's the description: "Premium black tea from Sri Lanka flavored with minty candy canes." Apparently Adagio will stop selling it after the holiday. Lucky for Mr. BFR, I already bought a second small tin to get us through to spring.
The Assessment. I'm pretty sure that Katsa and Po do not drink tea, at least I don't remember tea being mentioned at all. On the other hand, if they had the chance to taste candy cane tea, I bet they'd love it!
What's on your reading list this week? And what's in that mug or glass?
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.
Source: Bought (see review policy).
FTC: I buy all teas myself, I am not a tea reviewer.
