NOVATO, CALIF., (June 23, 2010) – The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas, introduces new limited edition EAT PRAY LOVE TEA inspired by Sony Pictures’ highly anticipated film Eat Pray Love, which will be released in theaters nationwide on August 13, 2010.

Available now, EAT PRAY LOVE TEA blends flavors from Liz Gilbert’s three destinations of self-discovery – succulent blood oranges from Italy, smooth black tea from India, and heartwarming cinnamon from Indonesia. It is packaged in a recyclable, collector’s tin with label art from the film.

Subject to availability, EAT PRAY LOVE TEA has a suggested retail price of $11.50 and is available in recyclable tins containing 50 all natural, unbleached, round tea bags free of unnecessary strings, tags and staples. It is available nationwide exclusively at Cost Plus World Market and through the company Web site, (www.REPUBLICofTEA.com), mail-order catalogue and by calling, 800.298.4TEA (832).

Liz Gilbert is a modern woman on a quest to marvel at and travel the world while rediscovering and reconnecting with her true inner-self in Eat Pray Love. At a crossroads after a divorce, Gilbert takes a year-long sabbatical from her job and steps uncharacteristically out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life. In her wondrous and exotic travels, she experiences the simple pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of love in Bali. Based on an inspiring true story, Eat Pray Love proves that there really is more than one way to let yourself go and see the world. The film is directed by Ryan Murphy. The screenplay is by Ryan Murphy and Jennifer Salt, based on the book by Elizabeth Gilbert. Dede Gardner is the producer.
