BB & GT June Wrap Up!


The end of another month– and officially half way through the year. If you’ve fallen behind at all over these last few weeks, here’s a summary of what went down this month on Brown Books & Green Tea. 

Teas I was obsessed with:

  • Rumi Teas and SpicesRumi Tea, Oolong Orange Blossom: This is technically a July tea since I bought it yesterday, but I’m highlighting it anyway since it tastes and smells absolutely amazing. I’ve loved citrus notes in my tea ever since I was little, when my favorite tea was Bigelow Constant Comment. I don’t drink black tea much anymore, but this one might fill the void.
  • Teavana Peach Tranquility Herbal Tea: This is one of a mixture of teas I gave a friend for her graduation. She finished with her Masters in Social Work and her Juris Doctorate, so I figured it required something great. I picked this particular tea because I knew it would also make a great iced tea. The other teas I picked are:
    • Earl Grey Creme (my favorite black tea of all time)
    • Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea
    • Moroccan Mint Green Tea



  • What am I reading next? : A list of the fantastic books coming this month to BB&GT! Take a glance for recommendations for books to keep an eye out for.
  • Understanding Oppression Through Literature Pt 1: I’m hoping this becomes a long-term series. So many of the most impactful books I’ve read helped me understand the dynamics that contribute to oppression. Check out this list for my favorites.

Features and Guest Posts

  • #Diversebookblogger features
    • #1: Life of a Female Bibliophile

This month was a bit slow, because I had lots of travel to see friends and preparation for a new job coming up. July is going to be a great month– I already have a couple fantastic books on tap, and a couple upcoming guest posts! Check out today’s guest post on Sci-Fi and Scary about diversity in speculative fiction!

  1. 😀 Peach tranquility may be my favorite tea of all time. I have to try it iced, though! Super excited to try the other ones 🙂


  2. I really need to get back into tea. Last spring I cut out coffee for about two months, switching to peppermint and green teas, and I was really impressed by how much more energy I had. Maybe once this summer of craziness calms down a bit I can put down the coffee grinder and pick up some more tea!


    1. Me too! My friend was hoping to get a little more into loose leaf tea, so hopefully it’s a good one to start her off with.
