NOVATO, CALIF. (November 20, 2017) – The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas and herbs, is pleased to introduce two new specialty teas for the critically acclaimed Netflix Original Series The Crown by Left Bank Pictures, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

The highly anticipated second season of The Crown returns to Netflix on December 8, 2017.
- The Queen’s Evening Tea – There is perhaps no better way to end a day of royal duties than to settle in with an evening cuppa. This blend of fragrant heirloom chamomile blossoms and sweet honey is a lovely way to calm the mind and fortify the spirit.
- Prime Minister’s Blend – Winston Churchill once said, “I am easily satisfied with the very best.” No doubt, he would be quite satisfied with this splendid Earl Grey, which blends fine Ceylon black tea leaves and exquisite Bergamot oil.
- The Crown 2-Tin Gift Set – A royal collector’s gift, the two-tin gift set featuring the Prime Minister’s Tea and The Queen’s Evening Tea is the perfect pairing for The Crown series enthusiast.
The Crown® teas can be enjoyed hot or cold over a glass of ice. Each collector’s tin with label art from the show holds 36 round, gluten-free, unbleached tea bags free of tags, strings and staples. The Queen’s Evening Tea and the Prime Minister’s Blend retail at $13.00, and The Crown 2-Tin Gift Set retails at $27.95. The Crown® teas are now available at www.republicoftea.com and specialty retailers across the country.
The award-winning Netflix Original Series begins with an inside look at the early reign of Queen Elizabeth II, who ascended the throne after the death of her father, King George VI. The series chronicles the personal intrigues, romances, and political rivalries in Buckingham Palace and 10 Downing Street, impacting world events and transforming the role of the British monarchy in 20th century life.
