Thursday Tea (Mar. 3): Big in China

Thursday Tea is a weekly(-ish) meme hosted by yours truly. To play along, all you need is a cup of tea, the book you’re currently reading, and the answers to the following questions: what tea are you drinking (and do you like it)? What book are you reading (and do you like it)? Tell us a little about your tea and your book, and whether or not you think the two go together.

The book: I’m about 100 pages in Big in China, a memoir about this dude who moved to China and eventually became a pseudo-rock star. Or something. It’s actually kind of disappointingly boring– mostly because everything I actually want to read about, like the difficulties of adjusting to life in a foreign country, or even stuff about the people who LIVE in that foreign country and who aren’t ex-pats, that stuff is glossed over so the author can have more space to whine about being a stay-at-home dad or about having actual staff members to help run the household.

It’s not a BAD book (if it was horrible I would have dumped it before now), but I’m hoping he’ll finally start doing some actual music stuff soon because I need some excitement.

The tea: Trusty old Earl Grey. It’s my last bag, though, which is terrifying.

Do they go together? Well, really I should be drinking green tea, but I actually can’t stand most green tea. Sooo. Yeah.

What’s your Thursday Tea?
