Ain’t nothin’ finer than a cup of hot tea and a good book…unless it’s a cup of hot tea INSPIRED BY a good book and a good book. In today’s edition of Here’s A Nifty Thing I Found On The Internet, meet Prologue Tea Co., a line of teas based on classic literature:

The line of loose leaf teas are blended using flavors inspired by each story, and the individual tin designs “include motifs from the narratives and other elements that are a part of the reading experience.” The first lines of each work is printed on the back of the tin.

As far as I can tell, the line is a one-of-a-kind design from Flora Chan as part of a portfolio and isn’t available for sale (a good bit of googlin’ didn’t reveal a retail site, but please correct me if you find one). But they are nice to look at, am I right?

I especially like the concept of a Gatsby tea. Tastes like money, maybe?
