Things have quieted down a bit for the Book and a Beverage interview feature (although that’s partly my fault with not being as active as I once was on the blog!) but I still love the idea of a book and beverage feature. I was thinking about book and coffee pairings as I was drinking my iced coffee one afternoon and I thought it would be fun to keep the book & beverage theme going by actually pairing books with beverages that go with them!
BOOK AND A BEVERAGE: THE CROWN’S GAME
I adored THE CROWN’S GAME by Evelyn Skye and I’m currently in the middle of its sequel, THE CROWN’S FATE. I was inspired by the book to make a candle for the series (although it’s since been semi-retired) with all of the mention of Vika’s honeysuckle and cinnamon scent. I wondered if there were any beverages that combined these two scents because as heavenly as it smells, I bet some sort of beverage would be equally amazing!
I went in search of the perfect beverage for such an occasion and decided the best blend for honeysuckle and cinnamon was probably a tea. I can just imagine sipping that sweetness with a little cinnamon kick, and warm beverage seemed appropriate for a magical connection to make you feel all warm and cozy and tingly!
I found a website for a tea shop in West Hartford, CT called The Green Teahouse (and you can order from their website if anyone is interested)! They came up in my search for a honeysuckle/cinnamon blend and their Cinnamon Honeysuckle herbal tea sounds just delightful. It’s a “warm and spicy blend”, as described by the Green Teahouse, of honeysuckle, rooibos, and sweet cinnamon. I may need to get some for myself because this sounds wonderful! This blend sounds like the absolute perfect pairing to drink while you’re reading THE CROWN’S GAME and THE CROWN’S FATE!
