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 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
- Binti, by Nnedi Okorafor
- Modern Romance, by Aziz Ansari
- A House for Happy Mothers, by Amulya Malladi
- In the Country We Live In, by Diane Guerrero
- The Underground Railroad, by Colson Whitehead
- What am I reading next? : A list of the fantastic books coming this month to BB>! 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.

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!
