This bookshop is lovely and quaint; I have visited this shop several times and today decided to treat myself to a cup of tea. They have the Keurig brewing system and one just has to purchase the K-cups (coffee, tea, hot chocolate, or cider) and bring it to the machine; place a cup underneath it and hit the start button and within about 30 seconds you have a lovely, hot cup of tea.

I selected the India Spice Chai Tea and the tea’s aroma was that of fragrant spice of Cardamom, cloves and cinnamon; teas’ color was like dark chestnut and when I take a sip of the tea, the spices are there to meet me. It is warmth. I was being greedy as I added several packets of white sugar to the tea. I stirred and stirred it until it dissolved and took my tea with me. I drink this tea throughout the day; I tried to make the cup last that is all.

In all, I have enjoyed drinking tea made using the K-cups Brewing Machine and they have all being most enjoyable. I am somewhat familiar with the Celestial Seasonings® Brand and this India Spice Chai is made by Celestial Seasonings Tea.

The tea has lovely spicy aroma, tea’s color was rightly for the chai…that darken chestnut making for a lovely malty Assam tea. Tea is smooth and sweetly with a complex layering of spices like cinnamon, cloves and cardamom with hints of nutmeg giving it that vanilla bean quality.

The book store has many wonderful treasures that one can find as gifts for friends, relatives and for oneself; for all occasions the bookstore can be for gathering of folks wanting to spend sometime while waiting for an event to begin at the library, or to have a snack while researching at the library. So indulge in this shop and take in all that it has to offer.
