Anne of Green Tea Gables by NovelTeas

Metal tea tin labeled Anne of Green Tea Gables by NovelTeas

During a recent visit to a bookshop, a tin of specialty Anne of Green Gables tea caught my attention. It's called "Anne of Green Tea Gables" by NovelTeas. The company produces a delightful library of punny teas for book lovers that include "Pekoe Pan," "Pippi Oolongstocking," and "Oliver Lemon Twist." The Anne-inspired tea is a green tea flavored with raspberry pieces and orange peel. You can purchase it here.

Here's the charming description of the tea by NovelTeas:

"Guaranteed to be non-alcoholic, eternally optimistic and not get you into trouble. Our blend will romance you away to Avonlea and the world L. M. Montgomery brought to life through the eyes of Anne Shirley."

What a fun concept. Aren't books and tea a perfect match? Would you like to try Anne of Green Tea Gables? I think I'd like to try "Don QuixoTea - Man of La ManChai" myself.

Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe Page Petal Bookmarks

Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe Page Petal Bookmarks

I love visiting bookstores and spending time browsing the shelves for new things to read. I'm sure I share this trait with many other fans of Anne of Green Gables. Last fall, while wandering around in a bookshop, I saw this pair of delightful Anne Shirley and Gilbert Blythe bookmarks by Page Petal.

Page Petal makes handmade, pressed flower bookmarks featuring literary characters, fictional TV characters, and celebrities. They have bookmarks for fans of Little Women, Harry Potter, The Gilmore Girls, Barbie, Taylor Swift, and more.

The company makes three Anne of Green Gables bookmarks featuring Anne Shirley, Gilbert Blythe, and Diana Barry. There's also an Anne of Green Gables bookmark collection that includes all three bookmarks.

Here's how Page Petal describes the characters:

"Anne: Passionate, stubborn, loyal, intelligent, an articulate chatterbox. Embodying her loving and imaginative nature, the Anne Shirley bookmark is made to add a bit of wonder and whimsy to your page."

"Gilbert. Keenly intelligent, and demonstrates a sense of patience and devotion. Handmade with love, the Gilbert Blythe Bookmark is inspired by his passion and curiosity."

"Diana is a kind and sweet girl. She's polite and versed in social etiquette. Loyal and diplomatic."

Gilbert Blythe Page Petal Bookmarks

On another visit, the pressed flowers in the Gilbert Blythe bookmark were different. This time they were yellow.

In person, I couldn't recognize the pressed flowers. There was no description about how the flowers chosen were associated with the characters. The website does not list the flower types or explain the association either.

Personally, I associate certain specific flowers with Anne, Diana, and Gilbert, and I think flowers play a crucial role in several important scenes in the book.

What do you think of the bookmarks? Do you think the flowers chosen represent Anne, Gilbert, and Diana?

I keep running across Anne of Green Gables-themed items in bookstores lately. They seem to be everywhere. Last night, I saw this cool bibliophile pencil set featuring literary quotes by Chronicle Books. It features the art of Jane Mount. It's a set of ten pencils with the green one featuring a quote from Anne of Green Gables: "Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it yet."

The other nine pencils feature quotes from Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, The Three Musketeers, A Tale of Two Cities, The Art of War, Moby Dick, Frankenstein, The Prophet, and The Marrow of Tradition

I'm tempted to buy a set.

Anne of Green Gables Literary Quote Pencil Set

Anne of Green Gables Literary Quote Pencils

I ran across the cutest Anne of Green Gables literary quote pencils today. It's a set of six #2 HB pencils featuring the following quotes by L.M. Montgomery's classic novel:

MAPLES ARE SUCH SOCIABLE TREES
I LOVE BRIGHT RED DRINKS, DON’T YOU?
I HAVE GIVEN UP ALL HOPE OF DIMPLES.
PLEASE CALL ME ANNE WITH AN 'E."
IT’S DELIGHTFUL TO HAVE AMBITIONS.
I’M IN THE DEPTHS OF DESPAIR.


I think they'd inspire me to write a poem or story like Anne's "Averil's Atonement." What about you?

Anne of Green Gables House, Prince Edward Island National Park Playing Cards

Today, I found another fun gift idea for an Anne of Green Gables fan. It's a pack of 52 playing cards featuring the Anne of Green Gables House at Prince Edward Island National Park. Do you think Marilla Cuthbert and Rachel Lynde would play a game of gin rummy with these cards, or would Rachel disapprove?
