Hey Y’all! So I don’t l know about y’all but if there are a few things that are constantly on my mind and it would be books and bubble tea…literally, I’m always thinking of them so it was only a matter of time before I had a post like this.
Some time ago, I did a post on IG for a book (I think it was Loveboat Taipei but I couldn’t find the post) where I showed every bubble tea I drank while reading that book and I think it was like 4 or 5 in the 3 day span… and before you ask, YES, I can drink that many bubble teas in a few days (I’ve done more than that when I first discovered it). I’ve also shared bubble teas & books I was reading at the time as well (I did this for A Magic Steeped In Poison by Judy I Lin, Girl Giant & The Monkey King by Van Hoang and Bruised by Tanya Boteju), especially if they matched! But this post is different where I’m picking 4 of my favorite bubble teas (all with Boba though other toppings could work too) and a book that I felt paired well with it. So let’s get into it!
Thai Tea– Zyla & Kai by Kristina Forest. I picked this book because even in the moments where it was tough for the characters, it was still incredibly sweet to experience. It’s a book that I would happily recommend because it just felt right and was gratifying in the end, I feel the same about Thai Tea too!
Peach Matcha Latte–How Maya Got Fierce by Sona Charaipotra. I paired these two together because when you read HMGF, you may think Maya may do or say one thing but ends up doing another and I feel that this tea/fruit combo is the same. And like the drink, you finish this book feeling full and happy you got it.
Rose Green Tea–This Wicked Fate by Kalynn Bayron. So everyone knows how I loved This Poison Heart and I loved the sequel as much as I love Rose Green Tea. Both give intense moments but also are incredibly hard to put down. They are both incredibly satisfying to complete though you maybe a little sad its over when you do.
Lavender Black Tea–Flip The Script by Lyla Lee. I picked this combination because like when I have a lavender black tea, I found myself very relaxed and in a happy place as I read this book. This a pair that is good for when you need uplifting and that you can finish with a happy sigh.
In my opinion, there is not a bad time to have a bubble tea (or tea period) with a book ever. Since I drink bubble tea fairly often, I’m sure I will do another post like this because I really enjoyed pairing books to teas…it’s almost like book matchmaking! Are there any teas you would like to see me pair with a book? Do you agree or disagree with these pairings? Let me know in the comments or on social media on Instagram @crystalyogi22 (I’m STILL emailing Instagram every free moment I think to (and they must be really sick of me) in order to regain access to it. You can safely follow @bookishgirlmagic, that’s me but am still having trouble getting these people to understand why I can’t log into it. *UGH*), Twitter @bookishgrlmagic and Clubhouse @bookishgrlmagic where you can find me mostly in book centered clubs/rooms (primarily on Tuesdays and Fridays). Also please subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already because it makes me feel like I’ve been keeping to my bookish intents this year! As usual, I’m sending you tons of bookish love and wish you happy reading!
