Russell Crowe gets his own brand of tea

Russell Crowe has tapped into his inner tranquili-TEA (sorry) and gotten his own range of tea bags with legendary tea maker Yorkshire Tea, whilst on tour with his new band Indoor Garden Party.

The Hollywood star was spotted handing out free boxes of Crowe’s Tea to fans at a recent gig and is said to be “excited” about his new venture.

An insider explained: “Russell is excited about his new venture. The tea bags are proving a real hit too.”

Russell’s product is expected to hit supermarket shelves in the near future, with fans having already given the tea bags their seal of approval.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: “They’ve gone down a storm at his recent gigs. We’re certain they’ll be hitting the supermarkets in no time.”

The 53-year-old actor dropped in at Yorkshire Tea headquarters in Harrogate in England to treat them to a surprise performance.

Yorkshire Tea marketing director Dom Dwight admitted to being caught completely by surprise by the acclaimed actor, who won an Academy Award for his starring role in the Ridley Scott-directed drama ‘Gladiator’.

He said: “It was a complete surprise for staff when Russell and the band parked up their tour bus for a tea break on their way to the City Varieties.

“We can’t thank them enough for dropping by and treating us to a performance.”
