Darlene

Sorry Danielle, I can't help you with either of your searches. I think Simon from StuckInABook mentioned that he likes Earl Grey tea and that's about as close as I can get!

Danielle

Darlene--It's a hard one, isn't it? I'm sure I've read lots of books with tea drinking characters, but nothing specific comes to mind. Maybe I should see if Simon has any idea!

I'm no help with your questions, unfortunately. I'm looking forward to reading Sebald; he's a writer I'm curious about. I'm hoping to do more reading in March than I did in February; it's felt like a very slow month for me. We'll see! At least March has a spring break, which should give me more time :)

Oh no! I can't help either. Earl Grey is a common tea to drink here in the UK (and there was a time when people drank it as a sign of sophistication, so..). You'd think I'd know of a bookmark site, but I don't. Bookmarks are usually by the checkout desk in the bookstore or else they come with the book. But I'll look into that one - maybe there's something on the web. Paperchase, for instance, do interesting bookmarks and they may have a web site.

Stefanie

Can't help with either of the questions. I do love the Pomegranate site though! And the tea, all I can think of is Captain Picard on Star Trek Next Generation: Computer! Earl Grey, hot!

Jean

Thanks, Danielle, for posing the question to your readers. I'll keep checking back to see if anyone comes up with it. I had a vague recollection of it being a housekeeper who drank Earl Grey, which was why I thought of Mrs. Danvers in Rebecca. Could have been a character in Green Darkness. This is one of those silly things than can drive one crazy! Since I'll be writing more about tea on my blog, delightfulrepast.blogspot.com, I'll want to mention it if anyone comes up with the answer.

Danielle

Dorothy--I'm not sure when our spring break is, though the library is open so I won't get the week off (may have to squeeze in another day off soon, though). I've yet to read Sebald, so this should be interesting. And Feb was a slow month for me, too. I didn't accomplish much, which is why I wanted to finish one more book so badly (though it does need to go in the mail now!).
Litlove--I didn't realize there was a 'politics' to tea drinking. I don't drink a lot of tea, but now I am going to have to go in search of Earl Grey! And if you do think of a good bookmark site, please do let us know!
Stefanie--How funny about the Star Trek reference--tea is everywhere it seems. And I love Pomegranate, too, besides bookmarks they have those cool knowledge decks.
Jean--Do check back as someone may happen along with the answer. I will have to reread Rebecca now and see if there is a reference--you've piqued my curiosity, too. Have you googled on the subject? It's amazing sometimes what you'll find!

Jean

Hi Danielle--Yes, I've googled on the subject, but I'm probably not the world's best googler! I'll keep hoping! Thanks, Jean
