goodreads monday | a magic steeped in poison

Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme where you choose a random book from your Goodreads tbr and highlight it in a post.

Budget Tales Book Blog has taken over the role of host from Lauren’s Page Turners. 

The book I’ve chosen for this Goodreads Monday is A Magic Steeped in Poison (The Book of Tea #1) by Judy I. Lin.

A Magic Steeped in Poison (The Book of Tea #1) by Judy I. Lin

Publication 29 March 2022


I used to look at my hands with pride. Now all I can think is, “These are the hands that buried my mother.”

For Ning, the only thing worse than losing her mother is knowing that it’s her own fault. She was the one who unknowingly brewed the poison tea that killed her—the poison tea that now threatens to also take her sister, Shu.

When Ning hears of a competition to find the kingdom’s greatest shennong-shi—masters of the ancient and magical art of tea-making—she travels to the imperial city to compete. The winner will receive a favor from the princess, which may be Ning’s only chance to save her sister’s life.

But between the backstabbing competitors, bloody court politics, and a mysterious (and handsome) boy with a shocking secret, Ning might actually be the one in more danger.
