Three local businesses decided to partner on a brand new monthly book and tea pairing for people looking for book lovers and stay-cationers.
The program, which makes its debut on Wednesday (Feb. 26), allows people to pick up a predetermined book and tea pairing at Elden Street Tea Shop (714 Pine Street) for $34.95, according to Bridget Blakely, a spokesperson from Mascot Books.
“Three weeks after the pairing’s launch, readers are invited to participate in the novel-tea book club and discussion at the tea shop, ” Rachel Eisenfeld, the owner of Elden Street Tea Shop, said in a Q&A.
For the first month, program participants will be able to read “Anna Incognito” while sipping a cup of Crème Earl Grey, Blakely said.
“We tried to do a good mix of fiction and non-fiction and caffeinated teas versus herbal teas,” Blakely said.
Going forward, a new pairing will be available at the end of each month, according to a press release.
