NOVATO, CALIF. (January 1, 2018) – The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas and herbs, is pleased to introduce Peter’s Garden Tea, a new specialty blend inspired by Peter Rabbit™, Sony Pictures’ highly anticipated live-action/animated film that will be released in theaters on February 9, 2018.  Peter’s Garden Tea is available starting today exclusively at Cost Plus World Market and www.republicoftea.com.

James Corden is Peter Rabbit – the mischievous and adventurous hero who has captivated generations of readers now takes on the starring role of his own irreverent, contemporary comedy with attitude. In the film, Peter’s feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson) escalates to greater heights than ever before as they rival for the affections of the warm-hearted animal lover who lives next door (Rose Byrne).  James Corden voices the character of Peter with playful spirit and wild charm, with Margot Robbie, Elizabeth Debicki, and Daisy Ridley performing the voice roles of the triplets, Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail.  Directed by Will Gluck from a screen story and screenplay by Rob Lieber and Will Gluck, based on the characters and tales of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, the film is produced by Will Gluck and Zareh Nalbandian.

Representing Peter’s full belly of Mr. McGregor’s freshly snatched garden goods, Peter’s Garden Tea by The Republic of Tea features spicy ginger, slightly sweet orange bergamot mint, lemon thyme, anise hyssop, anise seeds and blackberry leaves – creating a delicious blend that soothes and comforts.

The lusciously fruity, caffeine-free, herbal blend can be served warm or over ice.  The artful tea tin label features illustrations from the movie and holds 36 round, unbleached tea bags free of tags, strings and staples. Peter’s Garden Tea retails at $12.25 and is now available at Cost Plus World Market and www.republicoftea.com.
