Pages to Tea (3)

P A G E S  to  T E A

I'm not sure if you know but I am a big tea fanatic. I have so many bags and tins of tea I probably can create a great wall of tea. I love how different teas have different properties. Some teas can be energizing and some teas can be calming. My favorite time to enjoy a cuppa is when I am reading a book. Hence why I am showing you some awesome book and tea pairings.

[The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins + Cinnaberry by DAVIDsTEA]

When I heard about the Cinnaberry tea by DAVIDsTEA, it reminded me of Cinna and the Nightlock berries from The Hunger Games. According to DAVIDsTEA, it’s a classic combo for a reason – the blend of sweet, juicy berries and warm cinnamon is cozy, comforting and just plain nostalgic. The rooibos tea also contains currants, hibiscus, strawberry leaves and blackberry and blueberry flavorings.

[Fairest  by Marissa Meyer + Queen of Tarts by DAVIDsTEA]

Queen Levana is manipulative and tart! With the colors of fire and pure vanity, Queen of Tarts is the perfect tea for this evil queen. According the DAVIDsTEA, Queen of Tarts is loaded with tangy hibiscus flowers, which bring their signature deep red colour and lip-puckering taste. Golden marigold blossoms add a pretty pop of yellow and there is a super-energizing burst of Ecuadorian guayusa. Queen of Tarts is invigorating warm or iced.

[Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee + Yunnan Gold by Adagio]

Samantha is traveling on the Oregon Trail to seek her father's friend in California. She pretends she is a teenage male seeking gold during the California Gold Rush. Yunnan Gold by Adagio is the perfect companion to Under a Painted Sky. According to Adagio, Yunnan Gold is a black tea and is easily identified by its abundance of soft golden tips, and savory cocoa and black pepper flavors. Sammy is sweet yet independent and bold. Cay and West's last name is Pepper which is perfect! The tea is hailed from China which resembles Sammy well since she is of Chinese heritage. The earthiness of the tea becomes present when the tea cools down which is perfect for the grittiness of this Western novel.


  1. Hi Nicole!

    Love this idea. I am a really big tea drinker too. We have a wonderful tea shop in Cambridge, MA called TeaLuxe that has a pretty large selection for teas, for only a tiny shop. Anyways...really like this idea...and the books. :)

    1. I love TeaLuxe! I do agree they have a good selection for such a small shop. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. That Cinnaberry tea sounds AMAZING! I'll definitely have to get some for my next re-read of the Hunger Games :)

    1. I hope you enjoy Cinnaberry with your next Hunger Games re-read!
