The Republic of Tea Debuts Fourth Blend in The Crown Tea Collection, Honoring The Princess of Wales

The Princess’ Peach Bellini Tea is Released with the debut of Season Four of the Award-Winning Netflix Original Series

LARKSPUR, CALIF. (November 13, 2020) – The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas and herbs, is delighted to introduce a new specialty tea blend for the critically acclaimed Netflix Original Series, The Crown, by Left Bank Pictures, in association with Sony Pictures Television. Coinciding with the November 15 premiere of the show’s fourth season, The Princess’ Peach Bellini Tea presents a delicious, free-spirited cuppa inspired by The Princess of Wales’ favorite cocktail.

The Princess’ Peach Bellini Tea features a base of fine black tea blended with a delectable combination of lush natural peach, apricot, organic monk fruit, vanilla cream, and the essence of champagne. The blend serves as the fourth tea in The Republic of Tea’s beloved The Crown Tea Collection, which also includes The Queen’s Evening Tea, The Prime Minister’s Blend, and The Queen’s Afternoon Tea.

The fourth season of The Crown opens at the end of the 1970s, when the Royal Family is preoccupied with safeguarding the line of succession by finding an appropriate bride for Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) who is still unmarried at 30. This season covers the introduction of Diana Spencer (Emma Corrin) and delves into Charles and Diana’s tumultuous marriage over the 1980s. The timeline of season four introduces the Thatcher era, following the election of Margaret Thatcher (Gillian Anderson) and explores the divisive relationship between Prime Minister and sovereign.

The Crown Teas can be enjoyed hot or cold over a glass of ice. Each collectable tin features label art from the show; The Princess’ Peach Bellini Tea showcases Princess Diana in her iconic wedding gown. The tea tin holds 36 round, gluten-free, unbleached tea bags free of tags, strings and staples, retailing for $13.50, or approximately 37 cents per cup. The Crown Tea Collection is available at www.republicoftea.com and specialty retailers across the country.
