I'm listening to Charm City, the second book in Laura Lippman's Tess Monaghan series (review of book one). Six months earlier, Tess was almost killed after she started nosing into a murder case, but with the coming of spring, her life is looking up. She has a full-time job by day and a cute younger boyfriend by night.
Well, life isn't completely wonderful. One of her uncles got robbed and beaten and is barely alive. And a journalist friend might be in trouble after he wrote a tell-all piece about a wealthy local businessman. I'm not far enough along in the book to see how or if the two story lines will come together, but a few more evening walks will give me the answers.
The Tea. It's been cold again in central Pennsylvania, and I've been drinking Stash Tea's Keenum Hao Ya. I bought a sampler of the tea, but I think I'll be ordering more next fall. Here's the description: "The narrow, tightly twisted black leaves brew into a brilliant reddish-gold cup with a full-bodied fruity, sweet flavor and a unique orchid aroma. Keemun Hao Ya tastes wonderful without milk or sugar and goes exceptionally well with baked goods like breads and cakes and muffins." I need to bake me some cookies!
The Assessment. Tess is more of a strong coffee in the morning and strong drink at night kind of person. I really doubt she'd give a second look to Keenum Hao Ya tea! That's okay, that means there's more for me.
What about you? If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, I hope you're finally seeing some warm weather again. If you're in the Southern Hemisphere, hope it's a glorious fall. No matter where you are, what are you reading or listening to this week? What's in that mug?

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.
FTC: I buy all teas myself, I am not a tea reviewer.
