"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read."
There is probably evidence all over Twitter, Goodreads, and the blogosphere that I love to drink a nice mug of hot tea, especially when I'm reading. So, even though I had resolved to only review books on this blog, I couldn't resist this product from Bag Ladies Tea when they approached me about reviewing their product.
The tea itself is a lovely English Breakfast tea, something that most tea drinkers will enjoy, and the product is very reasonably priced. But the best part of this product is the literary quote that comes on the tag of each tea bag. There are quotes from Alice Hoffman, Louisa May Alcott and C. S. Lewis. Usually I try to get two cups from a tea bag. But these are so fun, you want a new tea bag for every cup you drink. I only wish I would have found this product sooner--a pouch of this tea and a mug would have made wonderful gifts for book club friends! Next year!
Tricia McIntyre, of Bag Ladies Tea, wrote of her families deep affection for books when she sent this product which inspired this line of packaging. But the company also offers at least a dozen other types of packaging for the English Breakfast tea (including a set for teachers, one for mothers and one for birthdays) as well as other types of teas.
