I'm listening to Julia Spencer-Fleming's All Mortal Flesh, the fifth book in the Clare Fergusson and Russ Van Alystyne series (I reviewed the third and fourth books here). Clare is an ex-military pilot turned Episcopal priest and Russ is an ex-MP turned chief of police. Suzanne Toren is the narrator for the series, and I love the way she takes us into Russ and Clare's world.
So far, each novel in the series revolves around a social or political issue. The underlying tension between Clare and Russ is another developing theme. I'm just two hours in to the book, but I can tell this one is going to be a huge turning point in the series. This time, the murder victim is someone well known and well liked in the community. A great story, and I can't wait to finish it.
The Tea. It's been hot and muggy here in central Pennsylvania, and I've been drinking Adagio Tea's Decaf Tropics tea. I tried this one hot over the winter and wasn't all that impressed, but it makes a refreshing iced tea, with just a hint of fruit flavor. Here's the description: "Decaf Orange tea with pieces of mango and chunks of pineapple." I let the sun do my brewing and have a big pitcher of it in the refrigerator right now.
The Assessment. Clare is into coffee: She grinds her own beans, brews it strong, and then adds lots of sugar. Her secretary drinks tea, though, and might just go for iced. I'm not sure though, because this novel takes place in the middle of January in upstate New York--not a good time for cold drinks.
What about you? Let me know what you're reading or listening to this week. And I'm always curious about what's in that your 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.
FTC: I buy all teas myself, I am not a tea reviewer.
