Tea and books go together, everyone knows that. In fact, two wise sisters once said that ‘tea without a book is like a book without tea, and that’s just damn stupid’. Yes, yes admittedly these two sisters were both tea addicts and book lovers, and yes they are the Taiki Tea sisters, but what we are trying to say is that only good and warmth can come from the book and tea combination. This is why we have launched our Taiki Tea book club subscription, which will run in conjunction with our book club.
Each month our book club subscription will transport you to a different time and place with a book that captures your heart and imagination. Each month our subscription will have a theme, whether it is a season, a country or a topic.
To really indulge in getting lost we will be pairing each book with a delicious, unique authentic Japanese tea. Each tea, whether it be green, black or herbal, will be personal to the chosen book to ensure the experience from book to tea, and vice versa, is seamless.
To enhance the experience further we will be providing an exclusive mouth-watering tea recipe (we're big on using tea as an ingredient), and also an exquisite food pairing idea so you can really make the most of your gift each month.
All of this will be complemented by our book club. It is here where our monthly books are voted for through social media polls (we would love you to join the fun) and where we provide the readers with our review of the chosen book when we announce the monthly winner. Our ambition for the book club and subscription is to create a community, somewhere where people can lose themselves from the daily hustle and bustle and engage with other like-minded people. This is about you.
The Taiki Tea book club and book club subscription works with Wordery, an independent online book store. Like us, they started from small beginnings and both of our ethos’ are similar, we are both passionate, customer focused and small business champions. Whilst we believe we are pretty good at bringing great teas to the masses, we now have the expertise of Wordery to help us select amazing books for you to choose from each month.

Whether this is a gift or for yourself (which is completely acceptable), our book club subscription comes in one, three, six or 12 months subscriptions. Each month you will receive a book chosen for it’s compelling journey, amazing storytelling or ‘need to have’ reasons.
