Thursday Tea

Thursday Tea
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

Tea: La Tisaniere - Verveine (violet) tea

Taste: Really does taste and smell of violets - lovely, light and refreshing.
Only had one sachet in a swap parcel, must get more of this one too.
FYI: trivia about violet tea and Victorian violet tea parties here

Book : Six Degrees: Our Future on a Hotter Planet by Mark Lynas
Just started this book about climate change.
Lots of evidence .. anyone who is not convinced it is happening must be mad!
See previous post for another book on the subject.

Do They Go Together: no! This beautiful tea is too delicate for such a strong subject.
Yet I fear that if we continue the way we are going, one day there will be no violets left.
