July 18, 2011

The Republic of Tea introduces its new limited-edition The Help Tea – Caramel Cake Tea, inspired by DreamWorks Pictures’ highly anticipated film The Help, which will be released in theaters nationwide on August 10, 2011.

Available now, The Help Tea – Caramel Cake Tea is a blend of traditional black tea with the flavor of homemade caramel — refreshing served hot or over ice. The Help Tea – Caramel Cake Tea is inspired by Aibileen’s best friend Minny’s famous caramel cake. It is packaged in a recyclable, collector’s tin with a label featuring art from the film.

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon,  “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s,  who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times. Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, “The Help” is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.

From DreamWorks Pictures, “The Help” is directed and written for the screen by Tate Taylor, based on the novel by Kathryn Stockett and produced by Brunson Green, Chris Columbus and Michael Barnathan. “The Help” releases in theaters August 10, 2011.
