Jane Austen and tea go hand-in-hand so for today’s giveaway we have a tea giveaway, actually.

The kind people at Bingley’s Teas has generously donated two boxes of loose tea. As they kindly sent me samples of the two teas, I can say that they are delicious.

This giveaway includes:


-1 box of Mr. Knightley's Reserve  55 grams of loose tea
Best Seller. An Earl Grey that is true and balanced. The Bergamot is smooth and steady. A tea to depend on and love more with each passing cup!


-1 box of Emma’s Perfect Match 50 grams of loose tea
Is green naive? Our green tea blend with strawberries from Mr. Knightley's garden and rose petals to encourage romantic matches just might cause you to fall in love.


-1 Copy of Emma Penguin Classic Deluxe Edition


About the Jane Austen Tea Series:

Ms. Jane Austen, well known authoress during the Regency period of timeless favorites such as Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion has held a longstanding place our hearts.

Our own company name is drawn from one of her characters, who was quick to approve of everyone he met and always approachable in his manner. This inspiration spilled over into our Jane Austen Tea Series. Characters from our beloved author's novels have been specifically paired with very particular premium teas and tea blends. Each was carefully chosen to reflect that character's personality and well known traits. We hope you will enjoy, what we find a natural combination of Jane Austen novels and Tea!

With Tea Names such as:
Mr. Darcy
Miss Elizabeth or Darcy’s Distraction
Sweet Jane
Wicked Wickham
Compassion for Mrs. Bennet’s Nerves
The Patience of Miss Price
The Captain
Marianne’s Wild Abandoned
Treasures from the Colonel
Longbourn Wedding Tea
Bingley’s Blend
Longbourn Wedding Tea
Mr. Collin’s

These Teas are the perfect companions to Jane Austen’s novels.

Who is your favorite Jane Austen Character?

2. Giveaway is Worldwide .


  1. Thank you so much for this great giveaway:) I love everything Jane Austen. However, I have yet to read Emma so I appreciate the chance. Of the Jane Austen novels that I have read (Pride & Prejudice and Persuasion) I would have to say that Elizabeth Bennet is my favourite of Austen's heroines. Thank you once again:)

    Happy holidays!


  2. This is actually a pretty hard question...I mean where to begin? Favorite heroine is Anne Elliot, for sure. But in terms of whether I prefer Mr. Darcy over Captain Wentworth or Edward Ferrars....not so easy. And then what about the brilliant secondary characters? What about Mary Musgrove who is just so insipid and whiney, or Fanny Dashwood that cold hearted minx?? Sigh. And I actually don't care for Earl Grey, but Green Tea with Strawberries? Yes, please!

  3. I like Mr Darcy and Anne. Thank you for the contests!
    Merry Christmas!

  4. My favorite Jane Austen character is: Mr. Darcy!! Thank you so much for the giveaway! Crossing Fingers!! :D

  5. My Favorite character would have to be Jane Bennet because I was named after her.

  6. My favorite is Mr Darcy! I'm a follower!

  7. Favorite character is Mr. Darcy; doesn't hurt any that I always picture him looking like Colin Firth.

  8. Oh that is a hard one to answer. Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy for sure. But I also love Anne Elliott and Capt Wentworth.

    Merry Christmas!!

  9. My favorite Jane Austen character is Elizabeth Bennett. I love that she has a mind of her own and that she's a reader, of course!
