Perhaps you’ve heard of a little show from across the pond called “Downton Abbey“.
Almost everyone I know was watching it and trying to convince me of how much I would love it. For a few years, I had resisted starting it because I just didn’t see the appeal of a show about the rich in England. That is until I finally gave in and watched the first episode! I was hooked.
There is something so fascinating about this show. The character development is incredible and it pulls you in. It gets into your brain so that you find yourself thinking “I wonder what Lady Mary would have worn to an event like this…” or “did servants really have a hierarchy?” in your everyday life!
I also find that it is quite relaxing to watch (other than the cliffhangers at the end of the episodes that ensure that I binge watch it and say good-bye to sleep)!
What could be better than snuggling under the covers watching a Downton Abbey marathon? Well, for me, watching Downton while sipping tea!
If you would like to add a bit of Downton to your tea time, simply print off these tea bag covers, fold and glue. Your Downton Abbey tea bags will add some class and a bit of humour to your tea party, tea time or episode watching marathon.

Or if you would prefer a slightly more humorous approach, these quotes from the Countess of Grantham (Violet) may be more your taste. You can download them by clicking here or on the image below.
I get a kick out of Violet’s zingers and spunk! I love the romance between Bates and Anna. I love the costumes and learning about a society that seems so foreign from the one we have now. It is easy to get swept up in the show and feel a part of something that is for the most part, lost in our current society.
I hope you enjoy these little mementos as you savour the last episodes of Downton Abbey.
