Germans Cash-In On Britain's Royal Wedding
ARI SHAPIRO, host:
And our last word in business is high tea.
Britain's Royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton is a month and a half away, and retailers are doing their best to cash in. You can already buy limited-edition tea bags featuring the prince and his bride-to-be. The betrothed stretch their paper arms out over the rim of the teacup, as though they are soaking in a Jacuzzi of tea. A set of two bags cost about $7 and plays on the bride's name. Its called Kay Tea. Leave it to the English to come up with a product like that. Only they didn't. The company behind the idea is from Germany. The black tea in the bags was also grown in Germany.
