I've just finished listening to The Solitude of Prime Numbers by Paolo Giordono (read by Luke Daniels). I'll have my full review up soon, so I don't want to go into too much detail today.
Alice and Matia meet when they are teenagers, each hiding secrets and each living on the outskirts. The novel explores their lives individually and jointly from their childhoods until they become young adults. The story is difficult to explain in one paragraph, but the book cover gives an excellent hint: Note the dichotomy between the two peas in a pod and the word solitude in the title. I'll leave you there for now.
The Tea. This week I'm drinking one of my favorite teas--Stash's Chai Spice black tea. As always, I drink it fairly strong and without sweetener or milk. Here's how the company describes it: "For our interpretation of this classic Indian drink, we blend rich, flavorful Indian black teas and cinnamon, clove, ginger and cardamom. The brewed tea is very aromatic with a flavor that is slightly sweet, strong and penetrating, with rich, full bodied lingering flavor notes." So perfect now that central Pennsylvania has returned to winter.
The Assessment. Matia and Alice both drink tea, and I'm sure chai teas are available in Italy. But neither character strikes me as going for an exotic brew. Matia, especially, is probably drinking some grocery store brand of black tea. Alice, perhaps, might give chai a try, but I'm not convinced that she would drink it regularly.
What about you? What are you reading or listening to this week? And, of course, I want to know what you're sipping as you get lost in the pages.

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.
