June 2024

The Wager is a mesmerizing story of shipwreck, mutiny, and murder, culminating in a court martial that reveals a shocking truth. 

While you read The Wager, sip on English Evening, a softer and lighter blend compared to our English Breakfast tea. 

May 2024

A Mexican bookseller, Lydia Perez, is forced to flee as an illegal immigrant to the USA, along with her son, after her journalist husband exposes a local drug kingpin. Instantly transformed from comfortable middle-class into migrants, Lydia realizes everyone is running from something. American Dirt will leave readers utterly changed with this page-turner filled with poignancy, drama, and humanity on every page.

Chocolate Chai is a decadent, chocolate-drenched chai blend with real cocoa beans. The rich dark chocolate flavor, while ginger, cinnamon, and cardamom add a spicy warmth. Make a point to try this chai both hot and iced with your choice of frothed dairy and sweetener.

April's pairing brings together our Lavender Earl Grey with The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.

A story of two sisters, separated by years and experience, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France – a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of human spirit and the durability of women.

French lavender adorns this popular British Earl Grey with an aromatic infusion of deliciousness. Citrusy bergamot only tastes better with lavender.
