A Friday Morning Book Chat + A Cozy Tea Recipe


It’s Friday! And we’ve finished remodeling, so I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend full of books and tea. Since we’ve been remodeling, I haven’t read a lot, and I’ve missed it. I’ve started reading The Blade Itself, but I haven’t got very far. I think I’m around 104 pages in. But I will say I’m shocked at how dark it is. I’m a grimdark lover, and this might possibly be the darkest one I’ve read. That being said, I’ve noticed I can only read so much and then I have to put it down and take a break. But I’m hoping to knock out a pretty good chunk of it this weekend, because Babel comes out on Tuesday and I’m so ready to get to it.

While I’m reading this weekend, I can guarantee that I will need a few cups of tea. After the stress of the last couple of weeks, I’m ready for all the cozy feelings. I’ve been obsessed with one particular tea recipe, and I thought I’d take a minute to share it with ya’ll. It’s my take on a London Fog. It’s not completely traditional, but it’s been so, so good.

My London Fog Recipe

  1. Steep two tea bags in the boiling water for five minutes.
  2. Sweeten the tea.
  3. Add hazelnut syrup.
  4. Top with steamed milk.

The steamed milk in this recipe is important. I didn’t take the time to steam it this morning and it had a totally different taste. And obviously, the hazelnut syrup is optional. I just enjoy the toasty flavor that it adds. But that’s been my go-to tea recipe for a while now. I hope it makes you feel as cozy as it does me. And I hope you have an awesome weekend!

BAM! Books-A-Million
