Thursday Tea: Pride and Prejudice

Thursday Tea is a weekly meme hosted by Anastasia at Birdbrain{ed} Book Blog

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.

The Book:
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.

The Tea:
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.

The Assessment:
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.

  1. Oh, how neat! I've never heard of Yorkshire tea before, but I assume it's something along the lines of an English Breakfast/Earl Grey?
