Favourite reads and which tea you should drink whilst reading them!

When Teatime Lits confirmed they wanted to collab, I knew we had to do something bookish AND with tea. After all, we are both huge book and tea fans!


We decided on our favourite books and which tea goes with which book, so here are my picks.


Thank you Teatime Lits for collaborating with me! You can find their post here:


I Capture The Castle by Dodie Smith


A love story set in the 1930s with a complicated love triangle! The book follows Cassandra Mortmain and her eccentric family, who live in an old castle and deal with impending poverty.


Tea choice: for a vintage taste with some sweet notes to follow the theme of romance, I choose Cherry Bakewell tea by Bird and Blend 


The Wreckers by Julie Hearn


The myth of Pandoras Box combined with post apocalyptic Britain. This book follows 5 teenagers and their adventure after accidentally releasing an ancient evil…


My pick of tea would be Black Magic Matcha!


Gattys tale by Kevin Crossley Holland


Gatty the village girl – steadfast, forthright, innocent and wise – has never been further than her own village. But when she is is picked by Lady Gwyneth of Ewloe to join her band of pilgrims traveling to Jerusalem, Gatty’s previously sheltered life changes forever.


Tea pick: Earl Grey, a classic tea with notes of cornflowers to give it an adventurous kick.


Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen


Jane’s beloved classic brings one of the greatest romances to life. Whilst society tells her she must marry for money, Elizabeth Bennet wants to marry for love whilst keeping her strong morals and loyalty to family.


Tea pick: a Rose tea with flowery notes, but strong in taste and quality…just like Lizzie!


Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild 


Pauline, Petrova and Posy are orphans determined to help out their family by attending the Children’s Academy of Dancing and Stage Training. But when they vow to make a name for themselves, they have no idea it’s going to be such hard work!


Tea pick: Moondrop Dreams, after reading this fantastic novel, may you drift off and dream of your own adventure!


Paper and Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie 


Tabby Brown is tired of trying to fit in with her classmates. She doesn’t want to go to parties at the weekend – in fact, she would much rather snuggle up on the sofa with her favourite book. It’s like she hasn’t found her people …That is until she moves to a new town where a book club, The Paper & Hearts Society, is recruiting. Tabby might just be in luck. Enough of her old “friends” who only talk to her when they need something. It’s time for Quidditch themed fancy dress parties, games like “shut up and Shakespeare” … and LOTS of chocolate.


Tea pick: chocolate digestives! Though if you have a friend like Ed, don’t show him this tea as it will be gone IMMEDIATELY.
