Faiz Kermani‘s latest book, The Toad Who Loved Tea, is still about toads, though this time the main character is a toad who is absolutely crazy for tea. Tungtang wants adventure beyond her muddy pond and decides to go into town, with the humans. There she smells and tastes the most wonderful of beverages: tea. She ends up at Queen Catherine’s Olde English Tea Shoppe, ready to fulfil a prophecy, long told amongst the other toads.
Aren’t you full of curiosity
To meet the toad who loves tea?
It’s remarkable, don’t you think
That she can advise you on what to drink?
I’ve heard she has impeccable taste
And lets nothing go to waste
They say that when she inhales the tea vapour
She can immediately tell you the flavour
So let us visit our amphibian friend
And see what she can recommend
For whatever teas we may choose
She is sure to give us her views
I hear that she happens to reside
Deep in the English countryside
So let us be on our way
And hear what she has to say!

My perfect cup of tea might be ginger, mint, lavender, fennel or even chocolate but what makes it really perfect is having a friend to share it with. I just love having tea with someone I connect with and tea always makes life better, just as friends do.
Wow, that’s so nice! Thank you for taking part in the giveaway, Faiz will choose the winners at the end of this month :). Good luck!
I’m very fond of white rose tea from Lens Roses. I would like to read the book with my reading club Tea & Books. We always have an afternoon tea with a talk about the book we’ve all read. So, it would be nice if I got one. Thank you😉😊😍 And I could post a review on my blog http://www.booksandwords.be

My perfect cup of tea is an English breakfast tea with a lot of milk, served in a beautiful vintage cup. I really like to win the book. I give kids cooking classes in Belgium and often include tea and stories. It seems nice to do something with the book and the the story.
Hmm, yummy! Thanks for participating in the giveaway! Faiz will choose the winners at the end of the month. Good luck! 🙂
