I am a majorly HUGE addict when it comes to teas, hot or cold (beverage or weather) I usually have a mug of something near by and think drinking tea while reading is the perfect combo — they are both so soothing! I’ve never been horribly adventurous with my drinking, normally something black, the one time I did branch out was with a Carmel/Vanilla flavored tea. When I got it home it looked, smelled and tasted like tobacco (and I don’t even smoke)! Needless to say it was a bit off-putting. Anyway, onward to Thursday Tea.
I just finished Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen my absolute favorite book. I read it every single year and am still waiting for my Mr. Darcy to knock on the door. Until then, nothing will tempt me.
I was drinking Taylors of Harrogate’s Yorkshire Tea this morning as I finished P&P. I love this tea because it has a very smooth and clean taste to it. I drink it with a little tea and a lot of milk and sugar. It’s how my mom has made it for me since I was a kid.
Pride and Prejudice is an English novel and the tea is English, so yes I think they compliment each other nicely. Also, tea is served quite freely to Mrs. Bennet to ease her nerves while she rattles on about what she is momentarily vexed about.
