September's featured book was The Lightest Object in the Universe, by Kimi Eisele. It’s an uplifting story, with just a touch of the mystical. A nice change from dark, heavy fantasies!
Methodical Coffee freshly roasted this “Belly Warmer” blend. Their photo worthy packing is reminiscent of the nature themes in this month’s book. The male lead, Carson, journey’s across the country, and this blend reflects the strong cup of coffee you’d have on an early morning road trip.
Two teas matched this month’s book, so we included both! The first is an Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake tea by Simpson & Vail. Apples are one of those easy fruits to come by in the wild, but it also has hints of orange blossom, something that always reminds Carson of Beatrix, the female main character.
The second tea this month was a small bag of Organic Yerba Mate tea by Octavia tea. This tea is important to Beatrix because it is from her travels abroad, and symbolizes friendship. It’s key to her building an important relationship, and thus her progress in the story.
As cool fall nights approach, we thought it would be fun to include evening, outdoors-inspired items with the box this month: S’mores! Warm up with these fun S’mores Socks made by Pavilion.
No longer included in this box (price reduced):
[Though we couldn’t make you a nice warm s’more by a campfire, we included S’mores Marshmallows made by XO Marshmallows. When you’re on an adventure you need a good snack along the way!]
