Northanger Abbey by the inimitable Jane Austen is a charming novel made even more wonderful by the novel’s heroine, Catherine Morland, who is darling. At least I think so.
Northanger Abbey is a satire and a fun poke on gothic novels. Jane Austen really was spectacularly genius. If you haven’t read it yet, then be prepared. Simply put, this novel contains a darling heroine with an oversized imagination, silly characters, loving parents, a thriller-like abbey, a handsome young hero (hello, Mr. Tilney), his ridiculous, callous brother and their mean father. What’s not to love about this novel?
“No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy, would have supposed her born to be a heroine.”
So, this brings us to our cup of tea. Which tea would go well with this over-the-top faux gothic tale?
How about Fortnum’s Assam Superb? It’s dark and rich and full of flavor, just like Northanger Abbey.
I think this tea would make a fine cup of tea while you are reading (or watching) Northanger Abbey. What do you think?
Also, because I like to be extra, there is a Pinterest board for this tea pairing. Happy Reading! xoxo, Jane
