Who doesn’t love a good mystery? I have always enjoyed mysteries and what I enjoy the most about them is that there are different kinds of mysteries to dive into. Whether it be cozy mysteries or mysteries set in different periods, I rarely pass the opportunity to read a good whodunit with a good cup of tea.

I have one of those enormous mugs that can hold about 2–3 regular cups of tea. I love those mugs because I can slowly sip my favorite tea and get lost in whatever mystery book I am reading. However, like mystery books, tea can also set the mood and add to the atmosphere you are about to dive into. When I read All That Is Secret by Patricia Raybon, I choose to drink Stash Tea’s Cinnamon Vanilla Herbal Tea. I made it into a latte with my Subminimal NanoFoamer and frothy milk. The vanilla and cinnamon was a pleasing compliment as I read about Professor Annalee Spain’s journey to find out who killed her father.

So are you a spicy tea drinker? Do you love drinking holiday tea blends as you read a chilling mystery set during the winter? Or, are you a herbal blend fan who prefers fruits and flowers to rejoice lively in their mouth while reading a mystery that takes place somewhere warm or exotic? Take this quiz and find out what book you should read next based on the type of teas you like.
