Literary Inspired Item: Literary Tea from Bag Ladies Tea

There are two beverages that will always be interlinked with reading or writing. One is alcohol and the other is tea.

This month I want to direct attention to Bag Ladies Tea – lovely novel inspired tea.

Who doesn’t love a good cuppa that’s surrounded by beautiful words from the talent Jane Austen and C. S. Lewis? Brewed with intellect in mind this range of teas are just want any reader or writer wants on a cold winter morning. True it’s supposed to be Spring but here in London we’ve had snow flurries dancing even at the end of February.

Unfortunately I don’t think believe Bag Ladies Tea ship to the UK. They currently only cover the US, Australia and Canada. But one can hope and dream they will ship to England in the future. For the time being I can always purchase some for when I make my annual trip home. It’s good to plan ahead!

Novel teas

I love this idea of enjoying a favourite drinks mixed with another’s passion. Oh yes, why I’d love another cup please.

Jane Austen Scarves by Brookish

February’s Literary Item Spotlight is brought to you by the fantastic guest blogger Flaneur in the City! Please take the time to check out her amazing and intelligent blog filled with original opinions on ‘Reading between the lines of pavement cracks and pop culture.

The scarf is the from the talented Brookish on Etsy. They do more than just scarves but everything is inspired by memorable quotes in literature!

Side chair scarf

“It’s a long scarf, my favorite kind, since I can wear it in different ways with different outfits. I wore to the grocery store yesterday, doubling it over and wrapping it “turtleneck” style over a long sweater, paired with leggings and boots. I tied it so the ends intertwined and the Mr. Darcy quote became a swirling pattern beneath my neck. Tomorrow I’m meeting a fellow writer for dinner and I can’t wait to show it off. Literature and fashion, unite!

Quote

The quote, of course, is simply romantic. What girl wouldn’t melt if such words of love were spoken? Oh, Mr. Darcy! As a writer, I can only hope (and dream and pray!) to one day capture such romance on the page.

Chair Scarf

I am truly, truly blessed to have you as a friend and every time I wear this scarf I think of you.”

Many thanks to Flaneur in the City for the lovely post! I’m just as lucky to have such a talented friend! Many thanks to Brookish for your amazing projects and handiwork!
