Smooth blend with a mild vanilla & cinnamon spice taste. I’m personally not a fan of mega-strong chais, so this was a great option for me. Tastes great hot and cold.

Alright Disney, you stole my daughter’s heart and soul with Frozen, making her damn near unbearable singing on repeat the one or two lines she can remember from the song. She told me she was going to freeze my heart and make me dead all while “pretend you are a princess” mania has taken a firm grasp in my house. So screw you, but you can hold your own with tea.

This little tea bag came to me in a traveling tea box, has been beating up in my bagged tea drawer, then dragged 1/4 way over the globe before I finally tried it. The bag didn’t hold up so well and luckily I had a fine mesh steeper to pick up the slack. And to my surprise it actually wasn’t disgusting, but the fact that I have been camping recently could be influencing my perception. The tea is pretty fragrant and tastes very bright. Even through some sweetened creamer, the flavor still holds up and has a little kick or bite at the end. The aftertaste is really nice and bergamoty. I’m impressed for what it is! I wonder who makes this tea for Disney. They couldn’t possibly have a tea garden and processing plant hidden away on the magic kingdom, where the little dolls from the small world ride go to work a night shift picking tea in the moonlight after the park closes… could they?

That reminds me of when my cousins daughter she would him or sing parts of Arielle’s theme from little mermaid almost constantly, but especially when she was unsure of where she stood at the moment. If she had gotten in trouble she would often come down the stairs singing it as a form of apology and question to test the grounds as to wether everything was alright.

She still sings a lot to this day and seems to be heading into the preforming arts as a career.

That is super cute! It is neat to see how traits from little ones evolve with them as they grow! I often look at my kid’s behavior and wonder what traits will develop and which are just a phase. I’m really hoping the princess obsession fades fast!

Disney teas are pretty good! You should try the mad tea party blend. It’s loose leaf and I think you might like it.

Oh, golly, Miss Molly! Am I excited to try this tea! It is Disney!:D I have ever been fascinated by the sure skill of their marketing and how easily I can get swept up into the “Disney Magic.” But I am no where near as crazy about Disney as many others are.. much rather cuddle up with my neuro research and a nice cup of tea than wait in lines with a billion people buzzing about:P But place and time— both have their lovely moments.

This tea has a nice medium strength base with gorgeous notes of peach and apricot. mmm, yum. It is one of the better apricot teas that I have tried and doesn’t taste too far off from the apricot that I had for breakfast. I do enjoy that it has flavor but without being too overpowering, very well done. A great blend with a sweet spice from the ginger. Oh, Disney.

Flavors: Apricot, Ginger, Peach

I had Eve by Nina’s Paris today. It’s a really good apricot tea, IMO, if you’re looking for another.

albertocanfly

I read your review on that earlier! It sounds absolutely amazing^.^ I’m going to have to get my hands on some of that:P

If you haven’t already, you can email Nina’s Paris USA and request three free samples- you don’t even have to pay shipping :-)

Skysamurai

This tea came with a cute tea pot as well with all the Alice in Wonderland characters on it.

albertocanfly

mj Really?! Oh my gosh! I must try this^.^ Thank you!

Skysamurai That is adorable!^.^ Did you actually get it in Disneyland? :]

Skysamurai

My mom in law discreetly got it there for me while we were all there.

What a tricky but sweet mother-in-law :D

A very sweet and flavorful tea, the lemon and honey mix perfectly and give it a taste that always sends me straight to bed.

By far one of the worst Earl Greys I’ve ever had, it’s very bitter (even though that’s how Earl Grey usually is) and I can barely swallow it, no amount of sweetener, honey, or creme helps.

Backlog annnnnd I think the main purpose of today’s review is to show I’m alive .-.

I’ve been somewhat busy but tea is starting to take more precedence again so yay!

I received this tea from my sister-from-another-mother who picked it up as a birthday gift for me while she was at Disney World.

Overall I was excited…this seemed like the perfect gift for me…but the smell was, well, STRONG. I brewed up a cup for myself and my mother and was greeted with some fruit and spice but also a lot of floral. I’m currently cold steeping this tea to see if I can coax out more of the fruity flavor.

Flavors: Apricot, Flowers, Peach

Well, this tea has had a long steep today, and it holds up quite well. I actually chose it for today for just that purpose — I have a three hour period in which I can’t really get up and take a break, and wanted something to drink during it. And thus, here I am, and here it is — two hours in and still going strong. Even at this point, there isn’t much of a bitter oversteeped taste to it. It would be a bit better with milk now, yes, but it’s still pleasant and fruity.

I really do enjoy the peachy-mango-y flavour to this tea. It’s light and reminds me of spring. I actually prefer this sort of flavour with a green base, but I like it with the black here too.

It’s not bad. I can’t figure out how to sweeten it, though, and whenever I make a cup it always ends up bitter.
I’m finishing what I have, but I won’t be buying anymore.

my tastebuds have some kind of weird block against this tea i think. every time i’ve tried it i ended up in somesort of uncertain flavors realm.

i’m not even gonna mess with a tasting note really. it was just that confusing. i’m pretty sure this tea is delicious and i don’t trust myself.

thanks to jump62359 for this memorably weird experience!

I made instant iced tea with this by steeping it like normal tea that putting a million ice cubes in it. I don’t even know why I did this because I hate iced tea. Anyway, it tastes just like iced tea. I don’t really taste any pomegranate. The Disney Wonderland Teas aren’t really making a good impression. They just taste like cheap tea. Not a fan.

Okay. I have to admit, on its own, this tea reminds me of dishwater. Its scent and taste reminds me of the scent of dish detergent. Which… isn’t something I particularly want to say about tea. Adding milk and honey helps, but I still can’t find it within me to recommend this tea, as I would some of the others in the Wonderland Tea brand.

One of my favorite teas. Its wonderfully sweet on its own, and delicious with milk and sugar or honey. Right on, Disney!

I got this during a recent trip to Disney. It comes in a cute tin which claims the contents to be “The Official Unbirthday Tea” but also says it’s authorized for real birthdays too. The tin contains 3.08 ounces. I think I paid $11.95 for it (possibly 10.95??).
I consider it a version of Earl Grey because of the Bergamot. It’s decent and just strong enough for my liking. The flavors are subtle and mix well. It’ll probably become my new morning tea and I’ll grow to love it and miss it when it’s gone.
If I have some left the next time I get a traveling tea box, I’ll put some in.

Mmmmm I like the tin more than I actually like the tea… But the tea is still good. Just kind of a classic earl gray.

I had a Halloween tea party and someone brought this at a hostess gift(how sweet :D). I love the tin. It seemed appropriate because I was the Cheshire Cat for my costume. Anyways… The tea is nice. Just a simple bergamot and orange. Yum :)

okay black tea. I can taste the other flavors in there but still kind of an overall mediocre tea.

First cup of the day. I was so excited to try this tea that I actually made a cup a few days ago, but did not like it at all. I’m trying it again and hoping that I enjoy this cup more. It smells very fruity – of peach and apricot, and there is a strong gingery aroma noticeable from the steeped tea. The flavor is mostly ginger – I can only taste a tiny amount of the fruitiness in the aftertaste. This tea isn’t terrible, and it would probably be good if I liked ginger more or if the peach or apricot flavors were a little stronger, but it’s a little too gingery for me. I’m glad that I got to try it though (thanks, Nicole!) and I will take the rest of this to my mom, who will probably love it.

I am officially on fall break! Yesterday was actually the first real day of my break, but I spent the day reading and napping. I think that I am just so worn out from my crazy day at the hospital on Thursday and my whole clinic group actually felt pretty poorly, so I think we’re all fighting off some kind of sickness.

Our little parakeet also passed away yesterday. I’ve had him for 5 years, and he came from the shelter as an adult, so we think he was probably older when we got him. He hadn’t had any outward signs of illness, just gradually was getting a little more quiet and losing a few more feathers than normal. He started chirping really strange yesterday and when my fiancee and I ran in there, he was on the bottom of his cage. We tried to pick him and sit him back on his perch, but he went right back to the bottom. Thankfully it was very quick and he didn’t seem to suffer terribly. Yesterday was the first day in weeks that my fiancee and I were both home at the same time, so I can’t help but feel like he was waiting for us all to be there with him. The dogs, cats, and my fiancee and I sat next to his cage so he wasn’t alone at the end. The house is unusually quiet this morning, and I’m missing his cheerful chirping already.

Today I have a nice and clean house to myself, so I plan to spend the day with my pups/kitties and read and drink tea. I also need to get half of my paperwork done for clinic so that I don’t have to worry about it on my actual days off (Monday and Tuesday). I’m going to savor every minute of this fall break!

-Dry blend has large black tea leaves and twigs with small petals and small pieces of dried fruits.
-Dry leaves smell like fruity apricot and peach. Tea liquor aroma is of juicy peaches with a strong hint of ginger.
-Tea liquor is a clear very dark brown color.
-Overwhelming ginger flavor and finish. Faint fruity aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Fair tea. Flavor is overwhelmingly ginger.

Sorry to hear about your parakeet. So sad!

Josie Jade

Thanks, Tealizzy.

ashmanra

So sorry! How wonderful that you gave an older pet a second chance at happiness! You guys are really great.

Rosehips

I’m so sorry about the loss of your little singer. I’m glad you’ve got a quiet day to yourself. That can be nice, after something sad.

Angrboda

I’m sorry about your bird. :( Sounds like he was quite simply just old, though, which is not a bad way to go.

Josie Jade

Thank you, everyone!

Janefan

sorry to hear about your bird. Your home sounds like it is so full of love and positive energy though. You are so generous to share your home (and time and energy) with all these animals.

Josie Jade

Thank you, Janefan. We’re so lucky to be able to foster and to spend time with so many precious little ones. :)

DO NOT DRINK THIS COLD. lol. First off, I made my morning tea and totally forgot about it. Second, I forgot about the steeping. So this is strong! It tastes like medicine. ick. anyway, I will change my review when I finally drink it like normal tea. haha.

Let it be known to everyone who doesn’t know, I love Alice in Wonderland and all things Lewis Carroll, and I have since as long as I can remember. I fancy myself a bit of a Mad Hatter (tons of hats, a little crazy, no mercury poisoning though) and also have a serious love of Disney. Though I have no shame in admitting that the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland was never really ‘big’ with me, I still was super excite to try a Mad Tea Party!

So if that introduction didn’t do it, allow me to properly introduce today’s tea: Mad Tea Party Blend by Disney Wonderland. A blend of Indian Black Teas, Safflowers, Calendula Petals, Ginger Bits, Apricot Bits, Peach and Apricot flavors. I just love it when ingredients include the word ‘bits’ it just makes me smile. Anyway, this tea is very pretty with the different flower petals mixed in with the tea leaves, I love pretty teas.

The aroma of the leaves is very fruity and tart! You mostly get the aroma of apricots, so much apricot that it drowns out all the other things at first, but if you keep sniffing around you get to experience a mild floral scent and just a touch of spice. It is a very potent aroma, almost a little too strong and makes me feel a bit topsy turvy.

After brewing the aroma just kicks up the intensity, the smell reminds me of an apricot liqueur with heavy citrus notes. Where the citrus is coming from is beyond me, but oranges are definitely there and poking me in the face. I am slightly worried I am going to get sloshed from this tea. The brewed liquid has more of the ginger aroma to it but it also has an artificial ‘perfume’ smell.

The taste is intensely tart, like eating unripe cherries tart. I should point out that it is not bitter, just intensely tart. I need to add some sugar to this tea (much like I need sugar with store grade strawberries, their tartness is not enjoyable to me either) to make it a little more tolerable so I can actually see what flavors are there under the tart. Well, it actually does taste a but like liqueur or maybe the flavoring has alcohol in it, but it also tastes like peaches and apricots. I decided after seeing a lot of other people on Steepster say that this tea is great iced to turn it into an iced tea, and you know what, it works that way. It still has that ‘fake’ taste that a lot of flavored bottled teas have but it is no longer tart and I can taste the earthiness of the tea mixed with peaches and apricots, and at the end a zing of spice from the ginger. Sadly I am not overwhelmed and doubt I will be seeking out more of this tea, it is just too tart for a hot tea and too artificial for an iced.

Made this one as a cold brew. Brewed for about 12 hours. It was ok. Not as good as the hot brew. Initially the tastes were pretty blunted, so I added some white sugar to bring out the fruit taste a bit. This brought out more peach flavours, but it was almost like way too overripe fruit taste. The ginger is still spicey but it is almost bitter as well. Definitely drinkable but better tasting when hot.
