This week, Kyrie and Cori discuss books by authors of Asian Pacific decent in honor of Asian Pacific Heritage month. They’ll also discuss the history of Asian Pacific Heritage month, something neither one of them knew about until recently!! During their discussion, Kyrie and Cori drink Plum Deluxe’s special tea from Kyrie’s tea club membership–Orange Blossom, which tastes just like an orangesicle. The aromas from the bag are to die for, and once you start brewing and sipping, you can taste the orange completely, with a super smooth blend of sweetness. It is a black tea, so cream is recommended if you like cream in black teas.
Kyrie’s pick, Snow Flowers and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. Kyrie was unable to finish this book–something about too many words and too much detail, while Cori read this for the second time and fell in love with it all over again.
Cori’s selection, Hotel of Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford is a story of family struggle, immigration, asian concentration camps, and love. A beautiful story of life, struggle, loss, and eventually finding hope again.
