Tea warms the body and calms the spirit — or at least, so I’ve found. And what better pleasure is there than curling up in a comfy chair and nursing a warm mug while reading a book?
I’m Christina, and I’ve fallen for loose-leaf tea hard. After drinking bagged teas for years (and hating the result) I first started drinking loose-leaf a few years ago. Near the beginning of 2014 I found Steepster and the Toronto Tea Festival, and since then it’s been a headlong rush into exploring all that black, green, white, herbal, and pu’erh teas have to offer. At this point I’ve got a better handle on what I like and dislike, but I’m sure that there will always be more to discover.
Before my tea awakening, I was always an avid reader, and a somewhat consistent book reviewer. However, in the process of building up my career, I recognized that posting about my hobbies on my professional site wasn’t the best idea. So: why not combine those two loves into a single website of their own?
That’s where Books and Tea comes in. So if you’re in the mood for thoughts on science fiction, fantasy, tea, teaware, and the occasional cat photo, you’re in the right spot.
