This tea was so much more than I was expecting! Disney packaging is so cute they don’t have to worry about product…but this blend is so wonderful.

VERY light in color and in taste. Nearly tastes like hot water. It’s not terrible but it’s not much either. I will mark neutral.

RIP English Breakfast tea by Disney Wonderland Teas, you were decent and bittered out much too soon for my taste.

My mom-in-law bought the tea pot for me and this tea came along with it. I must say that I’m rather impressed Disney. Or whoever it is that they go through to make their teas. This is befitting of the tea drank at the mad hatters party.

The tea pot it came in was really cool and the tea tastes good. The dry smell is my favorite part though. The peach/apricot smells overwhelm the rest of the scents but in a good way. Sometimes peach can over take in a way that’s obnoxious. Couldn’t imagine flying around in one (James and the Giant Peach anyone?) The taste is also somewhat over run by those flavors. But the black tea comes out enough to mellow it down.

This is one of the better flavored black blends I’ve had lately. As other people have noted it comes in a cute black Alice in Wonderland tin. I still wished it had a bit more tea flavor, but I didn’t find it as bitter or acidic as most blends. It says Indian tea and I’m assuming Assam, but am not quite sure. I like the flowery fruity bits with hint of ginger. This is a very good summery tea and I liked it even more iced. The fruit flavor is quite sweet so it doesn’t really need sweetener. I found it was tasty with a smallish teaspoon and a longer steep didn’t make it bitter. A nice tea overall.

Aaaaaand another backlog. (And cold steep).

This was kind of a mystery tea last night. I couldn’t for the life of me rememeber what it was until this morning. But after drinking the other tea in the fridge (most of which was labeled) I figured it out.

The bitterness and astringency in the base disappears this way (for the better). I really like the apricot notes with the light peachiness. It didn’t seemed quite so dessert/candy like this way either. The ginger was also more subtle and added a bit of depth.

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

So, seeing as today is one of my unbirthdays, I thought I’d try this tea!

This reminds me of drinking peaches in unsweetened ginger syrup. Which I happen to like. I did a short(ish) steep because Adagio has made me wary of oversteeping when trying new flavored black teas. The base here was still a little bitter, but very light on the astringency. The flavoring is naturally sweet from the apricot/peach flavor, but there’s very much ginger spice that comes through as well. It would still benefit from additional sweetener and possibly some milk or cream to add some creaminess and interest. The aftertaste totally is peachy gummy rings. Though I don’t get that during the sip.

It’s a fair flavored black tea. And I’d bet it would be really good cold steeped to kill some of the bitterness in the base. I also really like apricot flavors iced. Yum.

I also was hoping for my own personal Cheshire Cat to hop out of the cup and was sorely let down there. Thanks Rie for letting me try for some Disney magic here.

The tea, it’s just not… Wonderland, enough, is it? :c
The tin though, is amazing. I’ll add the tin description to the tea info to make up for the lack of magic in the leaves themselves, haha.

“drinking peaches in unsweetened ginger syrup” sounds good to me.

Thank you Rie for sharing some of this tea with me.

I didn’t realize that it had ginger in it when I first asked to swap for it. I do not like ginger except in cookies and other heavily spiced recipes, just not ginger alone. ginger tea makes me nauseous just smelling it. For the longest time, I didn’t realize that ginger was my problem. There was a flavor I frequently detected in some Chinese dishes and it was awful, but as I didn’t know what it was, it was impossible to avoid. I never suspected ginger, because it is common in all the yummy autumn pastries that I love, how could it be the enemy? Then one day, when I was eating some store-bought sushi, I sampled the pickled ginger that came with it. Yuck! that was it. That was the nasty Chinese food flavor that alluded me for so long. Finally! On a related note, I was in shock the day I learned that ambrosia fruit salad is made with mayo. Strange how ingredients can take on a life of their own in a blend. So far, I haven’t had any luck with ginger blend teas.

I read reviews of this tea and most of them say that the ginger stands out. Strange enough, I didn’t detect it at all. A case of ambrosia salad? This tea tastes like peach gummy rings. Oh man, I used to love those things when I was a kid. I had a bag of them in my candy stash at all times. The tea brings back memories, but I’ve largely lost my taste for candy. My sweet tooth aims for cakes and bakery goods, but generally not candies.

My husband on the other hand, who is not the biggest fan of peaches, likes this tea. He says he gives it an 88. Good thing since I have quite a bit left!

Mayo in ambrosia salad? blech! My mom never put it in hers, thank god!

Shelley_Lorraine

Yeah, I’ve heard that some people use sour cream, cool whip, or both. And mayo is often mixed with cool whip too. My mother always used just mayo and coulda fooled me, I always thought that it was cake frosting!

Rie

I’m really glad this turned out okay despite the ginger! :‘D The gummy rings comparison is appealing, I’ll try imagining that the next time I attempt to like this, haha

For being a Disney brand tea, it’s very tasty!

Thanks to Sil for a generous sample of this one!

My first impression when drinking it was that it tastes like a black flavoured with tasty tropical fruits! Well, apricot and peach aren’t terribly tropical… but I think it was just the slight hint of ginger throwing me off, because now that I know what ingredients are in it, I definitely feel like I’m tasting apricot/peach and ginger. Overall, pretty tasty! Lacking in astringency too, which is always a big plus for me + black teas.

Thanks again, Sil! It’s great trying all these totally random teas that I would never have access to otherwise! :D

I was excited when I first heard Disney was making teas! I thought, wow, Disney is jumping on the tea boat? How fantastic! If Disney is making teas that must mean that tea drinking is truly getting more popular in America! Excellent!

Now, I’ve experimented with this tea a few times before really judging thoroughly. Here are my conclusions: This is a beginners tea; It’s very weak. Disney recommends to steep for 3 to 4 minutes, for me, I had to steep it for 10 minutes just to get a strong enough flavor out of it to please my pallet. It’s not a bad flavor by any means (citrusy), but 10 minutes for a black tea? It’s pretty weak, (and it says medium flavor on the tin).

That all being said, this is a tea that probably should be enjoyed with friends who are Disney fans that aren’t familiar with tea, or children.

I love this tea. Maybe more than I should. But what can I say—it’s delicious and magical and brings back fond memories. And did I mention peachy, gingery, and delicious? Not to mention the tin is ADORABLE.

I recently had a friend bring two tins of this back from Disneyland for me :) Looking forward to LOTS of MAD tea parties!!
