The first time I went to Chapter Book and Tea, I was just exploring the Mt Eden Village. I liked the idea of reading books while drinking tea, a midway between a café and a library. I was more drawn to the tea collection than their books, though. I somehow stumbled upon their African Dream black tea and loved it so much that I used to tell everyone. That was more than half a dozen years ago... Perhaps drawn by nostalgia, I recently went back for another bagful of the dreamy tea leaves. For my winter reading nook at home...
