It's 72 degrees in Boston today and we can feel the fall weather creeping in! The chance to cuddle up with a good book and a hot cup of tea makes this our favorite season. Read on for suggestions on which blends pair best with some of this year's BTAF titles!
Here to Stay: White Chai
White tea is known amongst tea fans as the most subtle of the varieties, tending towards a quiet flavor. Like Bijan from Here to Stay, it sometimes fades into the background. However, the punch of chai pushes this tea into focus, and the warm blend will make you smile just as much as this heartfelt, challenging, and funny story. Try it here.
Shadowsong: Blackberry Sage Black Tea
Nothing goes with Shadowsong’s dark, romantic narrative like the aromatic bite of black tea paired with lush blackberry and subtle sage. With earthy notes that’ll take you straight to the Underground, this tea lets you face the darkness with focus and determination. Try it here.
Furyborn: Hibiscus Marigold Maté Tea
An action-packed adventure like Furyborn calls for a tea that’ll wake you up and help you hit the ground running. With layers of tart hibiscus and subtle marigold, this blood-red tea weaves together an unlikely pair like Furyborn’s queens fighting across millennia. Try it here.
A Room Away From the Wolves: Rose Flowering Tea
A narrative with this many layers deserves a tea with just as much hidden potential. That’s where flowering tea comes in--made by bundling together tea leaves and flowers, this tea “blooms” when doused in hot water, releasing floral and earthy notes. Get yourself a tea that unfurls as beautifully and unexpectedly as this gorgeous gothic mystery. Try it here.
