Tea + Books Gift Guide by Le Salon Literary Discussions
As the weather begins to cool off, curling up with a good book and a comforting cup of tea is an ideal way to spend an evening. Trust me, I’m a professional reader.
My name is Marisa, and I am the founder and host of Le Salon Literary Discussions. I am bringing in-depth discussions back to book clubs with all kinds of resources for literature lovers—from reader guides with multi-layered questions to virtual discussions.
To enhance your reading teatime, below you’ll find some of the most popular book genres each paired with a Tealish blend. Just like a bookstore, there is something for everyone!
Romance novels usually have the love interest showering the protagonist with the classic flowers and chocolates. So, why not treat yourself to both? Chocolate Strawberry black tea and Organic Sakura Cherry Rose green tea are both seductive flavours, perfect for pairing with your romance story du jour.
Marisa's Pick: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang + Tealish Chocolate Strawberry or Sakura Cherry Rose
Chances are if you’re a fan of thriller novels, the plot is going to keep you turning pages. So, pair the suspense of a thriller with the caffein free Chill Out tea. It will help you relax so you can keep your mind clear to figure out whodunit.
Marisa's Pick: The Maidens by Alex Michaelides + Tealish Chill Out
Classic literature calls for a classic tea pairing, but this Earl Grey is anything but boring! Earl Greypfruit kicks the flavour up by adding grapefruit to the familiar bergamot blend—it will make you feel like you’re having high tea with Jane Austen!
Marisa's Pick: Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontë + Tealish Earl Greypfruit
With multiple characters, maps, and sometimes new languages, fantasy novels deserve a tea that is as complex as their plot! Vanilla Orange Spice has it all: heat, citrus, and cream. It is sure to be one of your favourites!
Marisa's Pick: From Blood and Ash by Jennifer L. Armentrout + Tealish Vanilla Orange Spice
Memoirs, tell-alls, political debates, business manifestos—oh my! With so many non-fiction books to choose from, you will want a tea you can linger over while you browse. Almond Biscotti will give you the comforting feeling of relaxing in your favourite café with your latest read.
Marisa's Pick: Taste: My Life Through Food by Stanley Tucci + Tealish Almond Biscotti
