Lady Gaga is set to become the face of Twinings tea, who may create a new flavour in her honour.

The flamboyant singer's love of the hot beverage is well-documented. She regularly requests the drink during interviews, and is often seen in public with her pet tea cup and saucer.

Gaga has apparently been approached by several tea companies who think she would be the perfect choice to front their campaigns. However, she is particularly enamoured with Twinings, who are said to have offered her a multi-million-pound deal.

Twinings are an English firm dating back 300 years, and are famed for offering many different flavours of the drink. It is this which appeals to Gaga, especially as there is talk of a new flavour being invented just for her.

"Her management have received a load of offers from major tea companies but Twinings are the front-runners. They want to launch a new tea with her face on it and discussions are taking place at the top level," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

"Names like The Taste Of Gaga are being batted about. The idea is to have tasting sessions in which she would participate.

"The tasters are coming up with a tea with an oriental flavour. They want to market tea to a new, younger generation - particularly in America, and Gaga is making drinking tea cool again."

Gaga performed at Sir Elton John’s White Tie And Tiara Ball in June, and he presented her with a vintage teapot to say thanks.

During an appearance on a British television show last year, Gaga refused to leave her cup backstage and answered questions while sipping the beverage.
