Clipper Tea

Hey there! Today I wanted to introduce you guys with Clipper Tea. I think Clipper Tea is my favorite tea brand at the moment. And I must admit, I've bought my first package of Clipper Tea just because of the package design. Because come on, isn't it amazing? The illustrations and typography did it for me. At the moment I've got 4 different flavours:

My favorite of these 4 is the organic white tea with orange. But they're all deliciousno bitter aftertaste at all. The only thing I kinda don't like about these, is that they don't have a string. So you have to get the bag out with a spoon, get a tea egg, or dip it really carefully with the corner of the bag between the tips of your fingers. We use these bags in our Menu teapot (click here to read more about it) since we both don't like strong tea.

April TBR

Can you believe it's april already? I can't. We didn't have a real winter here in the Netherlands (thank God) and it's really warm here for this time of the year. Spring started really early and I love it.

This month I'm planning to finish and continue some series and I want to finish Neil Gaiman's American Gods on the Kobo reader.

I'll be finishing the Seven Realms series by reading the Crimson Crown by Cinda Williams Chima. I think I'll be starting with this one, I'm so curious about how it all ends. I'm also gonna finish the Divergent series by Veronica Roth. I really liked the first book, the second a little bit less, so I'm hoping the final book will be amazing again. I'm gonna read the second book from the Shatter Me series by Tahereh Mafi, I want to read Unite Me before I'll read Ignite Me, but I don't have that book yet, so it'll have to wait a little while before I finish the series :)
Last friday I also bought a new boxed set: The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare. I've heard some amazing things about this series, so I'm eager to start it!

So this is it! I'm hoping to read a little bit more than these, but let's not press it. What are your reading plans for April?
