Fans brave the cold for some 'Downton' tea in NYC
Lines were long for English afternoon tea, Downton-style.
People dressed as 1920's maids served free tea and crumpets from the elaborately decorated truck parked in New York City this week, complete with images of Highclere Castle and the cast from the popular PBS television series.
Fans braved the cold weather for photo ops set against the truck's backdrop and a free, hot cup of tea — an English Rose blend created especially to give fans a taste of Downton.
But the steamier subject, even almost 11 months after the season finale, was the show's cliffhanger.
"Everything is brilliant," said one visitor. "I want to know what happens to Mary after Matthew."
Season four of "Downton Abbey" premieres Sunday, January 5th on PBS.
