Are you inspired by today’s front-page story? You need not wait for Season 4 of Downton Abbey to appear on U.S. tellies Sunday to get a taste.
Heat up the tea kettle and settle in with a cup of Downton Abbey-inspired line of teas from the Republic of Tea: English Rose (rose, hibiscus, raspberry) and Grantham Breakfast (Assam black, ginger). A Downton Estate (Earl Grey, vanilla) is exclusive at Cost Plus/World Market. We enjoyed the perfume and delicate flavor of English Rose as much as the tin’s image of the three Crawley sisters.
Suggested retail price is $12 for a 2.03-ounce tin (36 tea bags). Buy online at www.republicoftea.com.
