Countdown to Downton Abbey Season V

Downton Abbey fans [which includes me], Season V, Episode 1 is just 30 days away [Jan. 4th]!

  I've purchased all Downton Abbey teas by Republic of Tea.

Downton Estate Blend is a Classic Earl Grey Black Tea with Vanilla that was blended exclusively for Cost Plus World Market and must be purchased from them.  The other blends can be ordered from Republic of Tea or purchased at select stores.

"I do think a woman's place is eventually in the home, but I see no harm in her having some fun before she gets there."    ~ Violet, Dowager Countess of Grantham

It was hard picking just one quote for Violet.  She has so many great ones.  She's my favorite character in the series.  Who is your favorite?

Grantham Breakfast Blend is Organic Assam Black Tea with Ginger.

"Every mountain is unclimbable until someone climbs it."  ~ Lord Grantham

Lady Cora's Evening Tea is a caffeine-free blend of Chamomile and Lemon Balm.

"I'm an American.  I don't share your English hatred of comfort."  ~ Lady Cora

English Rose Tea has Blossoms and Raspberries, and is caffeine-free.

"I'd rather sleep on the roof, than share with Edith."  ~ Lady Mary
"Oh Granny, even the English aren't in control of everything."  ~ Lady Sibyl
"I'm always a failure in this family."  ~ Lady Edith

Mrs. Patmore's Pudding Tea is a Premium Black Tea with Caramel and Vanilla.

"Daisy!  What's happened to you?  I said you could go for a drink of water, not a trip up the Nile!"   ~ Mrs. Patmore

Bates' Brambleberry Tea is a Premium Black Tea with Berries.

"I'd rather have the right man, than the right wedding."  ~ Anna Bates
"I miss a lot of things, but you have to keep moving, don't you?"  ~ Mr. John Bates

Downton Abbey Christmas Tea is a Premium Black Tea with Mulling Spices.

Downton Abbey CD, DVD's, and books are keeping me inspired until the new season begins. It'll be fun time traveling back to 1924.

For local readers: 

"Celebrating Downton Abbey Season V" promises to be an enjoyable theme.  Please plan to join us!  2555 W. 12 Mile, Berkley, MI.  Reservations are required.


  1. Oh, reading all these great quotes reminds how very much I cannot wait to see the new season! I've watched the whole series twice this year and hope to get in another viewing before the 2015 shows begin. Not bad for a gal who had never even watched the show at the beginning of this year!

  2. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Downton Abbey! So far I've bought The English Rose Tea, Lord Grantham's and Mrs. Patmore's. Hope to get the Christmas one soon. World Market has a whole display of Downton Abbey goods including dishes and food items.

  3. Am looking forward to it too! Great collection of teas!

  4. I have not gotten into the show but the teas look delicious.
