Thursday Tea: Gone with the Wind {3/11}

March 11, 2010 Whitney Thursday Tea 5 Comments

Thursday Tea is a weekly meme hosted by Anastasia at Birdbrain{ed} Book Blog. To play along, all you need is some tea, a book, and the will to answer some very simple questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not the two go together.

The Book:
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
The title or “catch phrase” really says it all, “A Civilization Gone with the Wind”.  Or, Scarlett O’Hara is the epitome of a young southern girl, pretty, vivacious and naive to the world around her.  All that changes when the civil war begins throwing away all that she once held dear.  This small description doesn’t even begin to cover the fantasticalness of Gone with the Wind but will have to do for a short summary.

The Tea:
Twining’s Irish Breakfast Tea

Hm, I guess I am a little shy to go out of my tea comfort zone because here I am with black twinings  breakfast tea again, but I enjoy it and that’s the important thing.
Here’s what they say about their Irish Breakfast Tea:
“A strong, full-bodied black tea from the regions of Ceylon and Assam expertly blended with a hearty flavor and delightful aroma.”

 The Assessment: 
No, I think Scarlett would be drinking something a little stronger than that, after working in the hospital all day and being unable to attend parties; although I think Aunt Pittypat would have a fainting spell if she knew.

  1. Embarrassed, I didn't even think about the Irish connection. Now that I have that association in mind, I guess book and tea do go a little better together.

  2. She could make it even more Irish by adding…whiskey? I don't actually know anything about making drinks "Irish," just that it involves alcohol. 😀
