It’s always a pleasure to see things you enjoy appear in the literature you read. For example, in my previous post, I talked about how I liked seeing a terrain that appeals to me, the desert, in fantasy literature.
This same pleasure also extends to food and drink. I love tea. I love expanding my palate by trying out different varieties and preparing it in a multitude of ways. Just as there are numerous different grape cultivars that yield different types of wines, such is the case with the tea plant.
While the constructed worlds of some of the series I’ve read try to capture the diversity of wine and beer, I haven’t seen this effort extended as much to tea, and even less to coffee.
