  1. There is a Chocolate Chai tea!? I never knew that. I’m officially going to have to try that. Chai is one of my favorites because I love cinnamony flavors. I could definitely see enjoying Chai while reading Gone Girl. As for the other teas, I’ve never had Olong and I’ve only had Green tea iced because I’m weird and don’t like it hot πŸ˜‚. I’ll need to check out some of your book recs. Great post! 😊

  2. Danielle, these tea posts are like a warm comfy blanket. I swear I love this feature and it’s interesting as well because I haven’t tried chai yet nor oolong… last of which sounds proper interesting and I shall need a trip to the health food shop to see if they have it! πŸ™‚
    The graphics are lovely, too… so feminine and you’re like Hannah the Herbal (yeah, I totally made that up just now!) with some great tea-knowledge! ❀

    1. Haha, the first thing I was going to do was ask if Hannah had a blog πŸ˜› Shees Liz ❀ I hope you can find some Oolong in flowers. In my opinion, the flowering tea is among my favorites. Chai I prefer loose leaf but have found many varieties in tea bag form as well that are great! With all of the spices, you cannot go wrong πŸ™‚ Thank you so much! ❀

  3. You list teas that I’ve never heard of again ! I especially like the Chocolate Chaie Black tea this time. I like chocolate, and vanilla, and I like Black Tea so I think I’d really like that one. Never tried Chaie tea before either . I love it that you’ve paired it with one of my all-time favourite books, Gone Girl. Now whenever I’ll hear about this book I’ll think of this tea. Would love to try that one out but I don’t think they’ll sell these kind of teas here. Can you find them in stores or do you order them online? We have a tea shop here, I might try my luck there first :-).

  5. Loving your choices for chai tea! Some very intriguing looking reads πŸ˜€ Need to see if I can find some of your favorite brand. My favorite (and the only one I’ve ever tried, to be fair) is Tea India’s cardamom chai πŸ’œ

    1. You are too kind! I am very happy that this is going over so well. I really want it to be a more regular feature once we get past the holidays. It is somewhat time consuming, so I haven’t settled on whether to do this weekly or not. Thoughts? How often would you like to see this? 😊

      1. Honestly, bi-weekly with around 4-5 tea-books combo would be cool. I’d recommend seeing how well they’re perceived by the rest of your fans too. I mean, I’d totally make this one of your signature posts just to make your “blog’s name” even more obvious for newcomers. πŸ˜›

        1. Thank you for the awesome advice! I was thinking biweekly might be appropriate as well. I had come up with the idea when I realized my blog was lacking tea, thanks to my daughter and her smart mouth πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ and the biweekly would make it easier to do more teas! Thanks again!

  7. I love your interpretations of what books go with which tea. These are so great, because while I love tea, I definitely don’t interpret my tea as much as you do. Plus, now this features makes me want to not only explore more books but also tea! I personally adore chai tea, but I have shied away from all the books you recommended there. Thrillers don’t feel like my cup of tea, but I’ve never read one. I just get nightmares over the evening news, so, I feel it is best to avoid them. Any other suggestions you might have for non-thriller chai tea pairings? πŸ˜‰

    1. Hah! I see what you did there “my cup of tea” πŸ˜‰ I consider chai to have a kick. I grab a cup when I am looking for something more lively, so maybe approach the book pairing in the same manner. Read something a bit different with some “umph” to it. Anything that gets you going a bit πŸ™‚

          1. I loved the first book. But it went quickly downhill from there. I feel like the author was pressured to finish he series quickly so the publishing company could get in on the dystopia phenomenon when The Hunger Games was huge. I honestly think I Would have been happier if I only read the first book.
            That said, it’s still a fascinating premise. I bet if it was rewritten, it could be tons better. I don’t want to spoil anything, but if you read it I’ll chat you up about it. Execution was just missed.

  8. Ohh I love this graphic! But what kind of graphic are you trying to make? I might have some advice based on my experience πŸ˜€ I don’t usually drink anything while reading because I tend to spill my beverage. Like, really, I even spilled my coffee on my old laptop </3 and I'm more of a hot chocolate kind of girl.. I guess hahaha but I love the idea of sipping tea while reading πŸ˜›

    1. I am currently just making this as an infographic. I found something through Canva that is actually working well and free haha πŸ˜‰

      It saves me from having to deal with formatting now.But I am definitely open to any tips or pointers ❀ What programs do you like for graphics?
