NEW YORK, NY – Attention, Downton Abbey aficionados: Tighten your corsets and ready your bow ties, because you have a high tea to attend.
We won’t be reuniting with the Crawleys until next month, but fans can get a taste of what’s to come in Season 4 this week. According to Variety, PBS is sending a Downton Abbey tea truck out onto the streets of New York City.
The vehicle will be making several stops in Manhattan throughout the week, offering free crumpets, hot tea and photos with a backdrop of Highclere Castle. Unfortunately, N.Y.C. is the only place on this side of the pond the truck plans to stop.
Fans outside New York can still raise a cup to the costume drama’s return by purchasing one of The Republic of Tea’s special Downton brews or—for something with a little more kick—a bottle of Downton Abbey Bordeuex wine. Just remember: Pinkies up.
