FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
The Republic of Tea Debuts Third Blend to The Crown® Tea Collection
Leading Purveyor of Premium Teas and Herbs Introduces The Queen’s Afternoon Tea, Inspired by the Award-Winning Netflix Original Series
LARKSPUR, CALIF. (November 17, 2019) – The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas and herbs, is pleased to introduce a new specialty tea for the critically acclaimed Netflix Original Series, The Crown, by Left Bank Pictures, in association with Sony Pictures Television. In conjunction with the show’s highly anticipated third season launch, The Queen’s Afternoon Tea delivers artfully blended flavors based on the show’s beloved characters.
The Queen’s Afternoon Tea features fine black tea and sweet honey essence, a lovely way to calm the mind and fortify the spirit. It represents the third blend in The Republic of Tea’s The Crown® Tea Collection, which also includes The Queen’s Evening Tea and The Prime Minister’s Blend.
The third season of The Crown sees a new guard sweep into Downing Street, as Queen Elizabeth (Olivia Colman) and her family struggle to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing Britain. From cold-war paranoia, through to the jet-set and the space age – the exuberance of the 1960s and the long hangover of the 1970s – Elizabeth and the Royals must adapt to a new, more liberated, but also more turbulent world. Written by Peter Morgan, The Crown also stars Helena Bonham Carter as Princess Margaret, Tobias Menzies as The Duke of Edinburgh, Josh O’Connor as Prince Charles, Erin Doherty as Princess Anne, Ben Daniels as Lord Snowdon, Jason Watkins as Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Charles Dance as Lord Mountbatten.
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 Afternoon Tea retails for $13.25. All three The Crown® teas are available at www.republicoftea.com and specialty retailers across the country.
