The Republic of Tea Introduces Limited Edition  Bridgerton™ Tea Collection

Five Exclusive Bridgerton Teas Feature Character-Inspired Blends for the Emmy-Nominated Netflix and Shondaland Period Drama

LARKSPUR, CALIF. (March 15, 2022) – The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas and herbs, is delighted to debut five limited edition teas inspired by the acclaimed Emmy-nominated period drama, Bridgerton. The collection debuts in accordance with the highly anticipated release of the second season of Bridgerton, premiering March 25, 2022.

Shondaland’s Netflix series is based on Julia Quinn’s best-selling romance novels of the same name. Bridgerton follows the well-to-do Bridgerton family as they navigate Regency era English society full of gossip, drama, secrets and lies. The Republic of Tea’s five new great-tasting blends feature flavors and vibrant custom tin art inspired by series’ leading characters. The collection encompasses:

  • Anthony & Kate Spiced Chai – This medley of exceptional black tea and warm spices like cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, cloves and black pepper, steeps a rich and formidable cup. Best sipped when spirited scheming and taming wicked rogues are on the agenda. Prepare this chai the traditional method – accompanied by warm milk, a touch of honey and an abundance of irresistible passion.
  • Duke & Duchess Honey Breakfast Tea – Pure, sweet honey tempers the boldness of strong black tea, paired with blackberry and vanilla flavors. Could there be a more perfect coupling? Sip this seductive infusion to ignite desire and, ultimately, devotion. Best taken with a big spoonful of warm milk.
  • Featherington’s Blood Orange Mimosa Tea – These days, the modern young lady must display a miscellany of talents in her quest for a suitor, and the ladies of the Featherington household are no exception to this rule. This quest requires delightful refreshment in the form of this ruby-hued hibiscus tea laced with the essence of champagne and blood oranges. But will this be enough sustenance to fill a dance card? One can only speculate. Caffeine-free.
  • Queen’s Cake Vanilla Fruit Tea – This diamond of an herbal tea is imbued with the flavors of a rich vanilla confection studded with sweet black currants and lemon. This cup meets the discerning approval of Queen Charlotte – the veritable tastemaker of London society. Sip like a royal and enjoy this decadent tea with no scandal and no remorse.
  • Whistledown Punch Hibiscus Iced Tea – Is there a more perfect way to start event season than with a delectable, iced tea? A fashionable arrangement of exotic hibiscus blossoms with a mélange of citrus and pineapple steep a pleasing refreshment to sip while indulging in the latest gossip. Caffeine-free.

The Bridgerton Teas retail for $14.50/tin, a great value at 40 cents/cup.  The Iced Tea will retail for $9.00/tin. The collection is available on March 21 for a limited time only at www.republicoftea.com and specialty retailers across the country. Each tin holds 36 round, gluten-free, unbleached tea bags free of tags, strings and staples. The Iced Tea tin contains 6 quart-sized tea pouches, perfectly sized for an elegant punch bowl. The Bridgerton Tea Collection will also be offered in a variety of gift sets.
