Downton Abbey Tea Review

Downton Abbey returns this Sunday, January 4th, so we thought it would be the perfect time to review the Republic of Tea Downton Abbey teas (of which there are many). Most of these are available on the Republic of Tea website or at Cost Plus World Market. We want to make sure you are completely prepared for the return of the show. 

Here is what your intrepid review team had to say about each flavor:

Butler's Pantry Tea - This taste like England in a cup. Strong black tea with a hint of lemon. Best taken with sugar and milk. This will wake your taste buds up in the morning and keep you going all day. This is my favorite tea of all of the Downton teas to drink first thing in the morning.

Mrs. Patmore's Pudding Tea -  Mrs. Patmore knows her tea and her puddings. This tea had vanilla and caramel flavors and it is the perfect afternoon tea when taken with cakes.   We've taken it with milk, and by itself. We all liked it better with the milk.

Lady Cora's Evening Tea - This chamomile tea is caffeine free with a hint of lemon balm. While I love the name of the tea, and I love to have chamomile tea at night, this tea drinks like many other chamomile teas. It's just not distinctive. 

Downton Abbey English Rose Tea - This tea is caffeine free and delicious. It doesn't need milk or sugar, although some might add fresh lemon. It also makes a fabulous iced tea. 

Downton Abbey Estate Tea - Black tea with a pleasant hint of vanilla. This is an excellent tea to have any time of day. It is excellent with milk or without. 

Note: There are even MORE flavors of Downton tea, but this is just what we sampled. And of course, if before you go down stairs for tea, you should apply perfume...
