Writing with a Cup of Tea

One of my favorite fantasy authors is C.S. Lewis. I can remember reading his book, The Last Battle, when I was still a child. I didn’t realize at the time that it was the final book in a series and I had only bought it from the Scholastic Book Fair ( An amazing thing we have in Canada, where they come to your school and set up with books, posters, bookmarks, stickers and erasers, and lots more, for students to spend their parents hard earned money), because there was a unicorn on the cover.

I have always loved Unicorns. I had to have that book. It wasn’t until years later that I read the read of the series, and quite out of order, I might add. The series wasn’t diminished by it at all. Needless to say, it became one of many seeds planted that helped me blossom into the fantasy lover I am today.

C.S. Lewis and I have a lot in common it turns out. I present this quote of his as exhibit A:
“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” -C.S. Lewis

Now, I write a lot about the books I read and the things I write, but I haven’t written much about my love affair with tea. My favorite is your typical black tea, whether it’s Orange Pekoe, English or Irish Breakfast, or occasionally Earl Grey.

A few years ago, I discovered the Dollar Tea Club, which is a monthly subscription that sends you various types of loose tea to try. So, I have decided to “review” some of the different types of tea that I try on here every once in a while.

As I sit here this evening, trying desperately to focus on writing (clearly procrastinating as I write this post), I am enjoying a cup of Blueberry Blast Green Tea, and I have to say, I love it. As much as I know how good Green Tea is for me, I sometimes like to exchange the taste of grassy water for something with a fruity twist. This Blueberry Blast is precisely what I hoped it would be. If you like blueberries and green tea, this is the tea for you!

Let me know what your favorite thing to drink is and, if you love tea as much as C.S Lewis and I do, check out the Dollar Tea Club!

I am an aspiring author, military wife, and mother of four boys. In my free time, I am a voracious reader and lover of large cups of tea. While I enjoy reading everything, my favorite genre is fantasy. One of my hobbies is reading and reviewing books on various online platforms. I have dabbled in short stories and writing poetry, publishing a small book of my poems in 2022, with an independent publisher. I enjoy keeping the world up-to-date on her writing, reading, and random thoughts on my blog.I am also currently writing my first novel.
