First up one of my very favourite Christmas books – The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman. I first read this one a few years ago, and absolutely loved it! It’s a story about a group of women who get together to swap cookies every Christmas, and it has all of the things I love in a story about women’s friendships and lives.
I think the Gingerbread Man tea is perfect to go with The Christmas Cookie Club – probably for pretty obvious reasons! I really liked that you can actually taste the ginger in this, unlike some other ginger teas I’ve tried before – it makes it feel cosy and definitely Christmassy.
A big mug of hot tea just isn’t quite right for an Australian summer story, so I followed Tea Garden Co’s tips to brew iced tea from their If Rudolph Was a Tea. It was so delicious – totally sweet and refreshing, but not too sweet. I had mine over ice and topped up with soda water, but I think it would be perfect with sparkling wine or even a bit of vodka! It’s a really pretty shade of red, which makes it feel festive too!
I’d love to know if you try these, or if you have a favourite drink to go with your festive reading sessions!
