Tea is not just for winter. The nine characters in the novel Jane Eyre Gets Real share their favorite way to enjoy this classic beverage on a steamy summer’s day.

Alice in Wonderland: a pot of chamomile served with rabbit mousse tea sandwiches; rabbit mousse is like ham mousse but made with–well, you know….

Emma Bovary: oolang tea macarons

Hester: homemade herbal tea cough drops (good for allergies)

Mr. Darcy: Earl Grey shortbread biscuits

Sherlock Holmes: salmon cured in lapsang souchong

Dorian Gray (no relation to Earl): iced tea with bourbon

Jane Eyre: lavender tea bread

David Copperfield: black tea punch (Mr. Dickens loved it!)

Heidi: chai tea fudge
