I've mentioned before that Irish Breakfast is my favorite breakfast tea. Since that particular brand was a gift, I try to use it sparingly... but that meant I had to find a good everyday Irish Breakfast blend. Thankfully, I found a lovely one from Harney & Sons, so whenever I run out I can just make a quick trip to the SoHo shop and restock!
I was so excited to pick up and read "The English Wife," partly because it was a previous Book of the Month Selection, and partly because it was all over #bookstagram. Also, I've been on a bit of a historical fiction kick, and I'm a rather large Anglophile so this was always going to be on my "to read" list. Plus, who wouldn't like a book that was described as a Downton Abbey murder mystery?
I'm slowly but surely going through my tea stash... I just need to stop myself from buying new tea. I know, I have a problem. I've been extolling the virtues of my SipsBy subscription, and so far I've only been slightly disappointed by one of my four boxes. I've been a fan of the rest of my boxes, even if I'm not a fan of the tea – like this Pique Tea Mint Sencha from my April 2018 box.
John Green's books are always fun to read, so when I found out that he had a new book out, I knew I needed to read it. (Yes, I know I'm behind the curve – I'm still catching up on my "to read" list.) I literally just grabbed "Turtles All the Way Down" from the library ebook collection before reading the blurb, so I had no idea what it was about – I just knew I needed t/o read it. So, I spent my trip back from suburbia last weekend finishing "Turtles All the Way Down," and it was a rather interesting read.
I love SipsBy. I subscribed to it because I saw it on various tea Instagram accounts, but I've fallen in love with this subscription. Sure, I haven't tried all the teas yet, but I like that I'm discovering new brands and new blends! It's especially fun when I get straight teas because I get to try them with my parents, who prefer "real tea" like the Kuan Yin Tea's Yunnan Gold I got in the March 2018 box.
