Television viewers are invited to join fellow Downton Abbey devotees for KTWU’s Big Sip Drive-Through. Get a taste of England with authentic blended tea served in a “Downton Abbey” cup with branded coaster and cup sleeve. And the best part is one doesn’t even have to get out of their car!

Tea will be served in a drive up lane in front of the KTWU, local public television, studios at 19th and Jewell Avenue on the Washburn University campus in Topeka.

On Friday, December 19th, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., viewers can receive a hot cup of a special blend of Downton Abbey tea by stopping by the KTWU studio drive. There is no charge for this fun television promotional event.

Everyone can then prepare for a return to Downton Abbey when season five premieres on KTWU on Sunday, January 4, 2015. The newest episodes will be complete with Lady Mary’s courtship contest, Lady Edith’s trials as a secret single mom, Thomas’s scheming and of course, the Dowager Countess’ one-line zingers.
