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!!
We had this as the final tea of tea party today. My guest commented that the aroma cleared her sinuses. Haha! I was surprised that I had only remembered peach and apricot with this one. When I gave it a good sniff today, she was right. It really was powerful, and at first I couldn’t place what I was smelling, and then I realized it was ginger.
The tea is actually a marvelous strength, not overpowering at all. Apricot and peach are in the forefront, but the ginger is a nice highlight and lingers a bit. It doesn’t burn as ginger can, but it isn’t shy. This is much nicer than I remembered. It was a really stressful time when I tried it last, right before working the election, so I guess I wasn’t paying as much attention!
This tea actually holds a lot of sentimental value for me, I bought this tea on an orchestra trip and every time I drink it I am reminded of my time there.
This is my first “apricot” tea and so please note I have not compared it to others.
It’s a gorgeous smell right out of the tin, apricots hit you right in the face.
On steeping the tea apricot comes to the forefront. It’s not bitter at all.
It may be my nostalgia talking, but this is one of my most favorite teas. I’d give a lot to have a lifetime supply of this at hand.
All in all (to the experienced tea aficionado), it’s worth trying if you happen to be in a Disney theme park (if only for the adorable tin).
COLD brew! I’m pretty sure the only way i’ll get through this is as cold brewed tea with honey. It makes it a nice beverage, especially as I’m still sick/coughing. it’s just not a WOW tea given all the exposure i’ve had to wonderful other teas in the past few months thanks to all my steepster peeps!
Gave this tea another shot.
Tried 2.5 minutes at 200f – much better in terms of no bitterness. But, the flavored parts of this tea, the ginger is out and pleasant. The apricot has disappeared though. A little bit of sweetness and that’s it.
Well, next time I’ll cold steep or ice tea this – maybe that’ll bring out the apricot.
/shakes fist Crazy disney tea! Work with me! I love your fun tin! At my dinner party last night everyone kept checking out the tin too.
I’ve always wanted to try a Disney tea, and my friend bought this as a souvenir for me while on vacation in Disney World! I’m not usually a fan of black teas, and the description reminded me of an Earl Grey tea. I steeped it and added a small amount of cinnamon honey to it. I taste the orange and the bergamont. It has a bit of an artificial aftertaste to it. I’m not real impressed. I might drink a few more cups, and I’ll certainly keep the tin, but I wouldn’t buy it.
So I got this new tea steeper thing from Teavana. Basically a french press, but without the press part. Just put the “pot” on top of the cup and it pour down (only problem is I can’t see how far it has filled up as it pours).
Anyways, this allows for the tea leaves to expand more versus the tea ball I originally was using and the tea tastes much better. Glad to hear the tip about the more expansion means more flavor, thanks guys :)
Sip down….well more like a goodbye. Not sure how I drank as much of this as I did, but this was part of my pre holy crap my cupboard is exploding with tea times! Tried to cold brew this and see how it would turn out….yeah. Not that great. Thanks for the good times when I didn’t know better topsy turvy blend :)
Keep in mind that I’m not a lemon-y kind of person…
I got this tea as a gift from a friend. It was a kind gesture, haha :)
But initially, it was the sweet scent of honey that drew me in. The lemon taste was a little overwhelming and had a little artificial kind of taste…
However, it’s a great tea to re-steep 3-5 times and chamomile is amazing.
And the boxing is amazing- Alice in Wonderland is worth a little futterwacken! (an AiW reference :D)
Thank you TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a bit of this tea. I am so glad I got to try it because I’ve been really curious about these Disney Teas. I love Disneyland, I love just about everything Disney, so I am thrilled to be able to try some of their teas!
Unfortunately, while I think that Disney can do many things right, I don’t think that tea is one of them. This is just sorta alright. I taste the bergamot and the orange, but the bergamot tastes kind of funky to me. It doesn’t taste like the exotic bergamot I’m used to tasting in high quality Earl Grey blends. This tastes more like … soda pop orange flavor in a tea.
It’s alright, I’m enjoying it and I’ll certainly finish the cup, but, this tea certainly won’t be the reason I want to go to Disneyland.
I am going to need a Mad Tea Party today…but I won’t get one. I couldn’t sleep, as usually happens before a major election. I fell asleep just after two and woke up at four and I have a fifteen to sixteen hour workday ahead of me.
My daughter brought this tea to me as a gift from her Disney trip. It is very similar to Madame Butterfly or Fuzzy Navel, but with a black tea base instead of green. We drank it sans additions and it was very good. I bet it is fantastic iced, too!
I won’t be making any tea today. It will be far too hectic. Hopefully the activity will keep me from feeling sleepy or tired. Before I know it, it will be time to have a cuppa at home and get in bed. I can hardly wait.
Say a prayer for us all if you think of it, please! We need it!
