It's Always Teatime

Fiction about Tea

Tea: I can't start my day without it. I've read a lot of tea books about tea, tea ceremonies, and so on, so I was pleased to find that there are many novels on the topic. I hoped tea would be a main character, but alas, even with "tea" in the title, sometimes there's nary a drop. Brew up a pot of your favorite and get reading.
