Normally around this time in March, I would start drinking teas that remind me that Spring is coming. However, this March has been filled with a couple of snow storms, with more snow forecasted for next week. So, instead of looking through my lighter and more floral teas, I dug out an old favorite – my Harney & Sons' Winter White Earl Grey.
I honestly don't even remember when or how I managed to get a copy of "The Book of Lost and Found," but I'm glad that I did. It's one of my favorite debut novels – and it's gorgeously written. I love rereading it because Lucy Foley transports me to England, to Corsica, and to Paris during both the 1920s and the 1980s. (I don't say New York because I'm based in NYC, but the novel does also travel to NYC.) "The Book of Lost and Found" is also just a fantastic story – combining past and present with a little mystery thrown in between – what's not to love about this book?
I absolutely detest the transition from winter to spring, especially in New York City. I never know how to dress and the sun always seems to be hiding. Today, for example, is quite warm compared to typical winter weather, but I'm still wearing a sweater coat with my T-shirt. It's also not sunny, so they day feels grey and drab. So on days like today, I like to drink a floral green tea, like the Lychee Green from Sullivan Street Tea & Spice Company, and remind myself that spring is on its way. Happy March.
"Still Me" was the entire reason I decided to reread the "Me Before You" series. I personally cannot leave a series unfinished – it just drives me insane. So when I heard that there would be a third book in the "Me Before You" series, I knew I was eventually going to reread the books... and eventually turned into this month. I should probably watch the movie soon as well.
Whilst digging through my tea collection for the tea I had planned to review today, I found quite a few unopened packets of one of my favorite now-discontinued tea from DAVIDsTEA. Since it's so lovely and Spring-reminiscent outside, I decided to steep and savor this old elderflower-flavored white tea.
