When it comes to gifts involving Downton Abbey and tea, the obvious choice is any number of the collectible teas released by The Republic of Tea.
Along with some of those, we’ll also be taking a look at some tea ware, and books, because there aren’t many things that go better with a nice cup of tea than a wonderful book.
5. The Art of Afternoon Tea: From the Era of Downton Abbey and the Titanic
This is a lovely book that doesn’t just cover Downton Abbey itself, but the era as well. Let this book guide you through 100 Edwardian recipes for afternoon tea. Try to replicate what’s in the book, or put your own twists on it – the choice is yours.
4. Downton Abbey Estate Blend – Earl Grey Black Tea with Vanilla
Here’s just one of the options for actual Downtown Abbey branded tea by The Republic of Tea. It’s very well reviewed, this isn’t a novelty item at all. It comes with 36 bags of black tea with vanilla. It’s tasty, and it’s fun to drink Downton Abbey tea while watching the show – even if it’s a little silly!
Of course, it also comes in a nice collectible tin that you can keep and use for other teas in the future, or to store an assortment of nik-naks.
3. Stop Whining and Find Something to Do
How great is this? This ceramic mug will earn a spot next to your finest of China, will it not?
2. Mrs. Patmore’s Pudding Tea
Another tea from the same set we looked at for #4, this time it’s a tasty dessert tea. It’s a caramel/vanilla combination in a black tea, and once again, the 36 tea bags come inside of a lovely collectible tea tin.
