Tea goes well with cakes, crafts, films, tartan blankets and catch ups. But the best pairing you can have is when you combine a cup of your favourite tea with a great book.
Victoria: I've been reading From home - a book written by a friend from my uni class (Julie Cumming). She's written and shared stories of life in Atholl. A fascnating look into those who call Athol home. It's a great book filled with Julie's gorgeous photographs. When it comes to tea paring, I've been particularly wnjoying Wild Lapsang and Speyside. I love floral and stone fruit notes. I'm yeying up the Mi Lan Xiang too.
Ewa: I don't like winter. Its late dawns, bare trees, cold and grey make me feel deflated. I find comfort in books and tea. Not 'any' books. I need adventure, I need excitement, I want monsters, fight and magic. I usually start with The Hobbit which is just a delight and then I move onto The Witcher which became world phenomenon thanks to RPG and Netflix TV series and not everybody knows it started as books written by Andrzej Sapkowski. It is great to be able to read it in its original language with untranslatable humour (and swearing!). I pair my 'winter books' woth Campbeltown whisky tea, Lapsang Souchong or Mokalbari Assam because big adventures need bold flavours.
