Generally not a big fan of chamomile, but I had a sore throat today, so…

The tea bag had a fantastic honey scent right out of the box. Once brewed, it still smelled more of honey than anything else. Lemon dominates the flavor, but that’s ok with me, since I’d rather not taste too much chamomile.

Overall, it’s decent but not amazing. I brewed it double strength (2 teabags for about 12oz of water) and I’d recommend doing it that way.

Nothing too special. The teabag has a very enticing honey smell. When brewing it goes from a light yellow to a deep amber very quickly and it’s got an overwhelming lemon taste as well. I still have mixed feelings about it.

The spice off of the tea bag would lead you to assume that it’s a very dark and powerful Chai. It was a little disappointing (like how at the zoo, you expect a lion in a lion’s den but are instead left with a kitten in a wig), but it’s got enough flavor and spice to be a mildly enjoyable black tea.

A lot of these teas in this set smell wonderful (pronounced: VAN-da-FOOL). But this made me a little sad, since the papaya didn’t transfer over into the tea and it’s very light to begin with. It felt like I was using a quater-sized teabag; the flavor just “vasn’t zehr”.

Perhaps another tea will do me in?

I liked this slightly less than the Mad Party Tea blend solely because it brews so light. Again, the fragrance is beautiful, perfect balance of mango and tea (Don’t you just hate it when there’s more than the other in a two-ingredient blend?). However, upon brewing it was much more “tea” than “mango”. I honestly felt like I had been handed the flavor profiling for a scented Pi Loh Chun. Also a tad bit drying on the finish, but very good for a bagged tea.

Excuse me, but please forgive the following tizzy:
The time has come, my little friends, to talk of other things
Of peach and leaves and loose leaf tea, of camellia and kings
And why the tea is boiling hot, and whether stems are twigs
Calloo, Callay, come run away
With the camellia and kings.

This is by far one of the better teas in the set. It’s got the wonderful fruity aroma of peaches and flowers with a base of black tea very similar to a Ceylon. The tea’s body is very light, and citrus flavors leave a crisp feeling on the tongue without leaving your tongue high-and-dry. It goes down relatively smooth (I really think it’s the quality of the water that effects this tea more than anything). Other than it having the tendency to get bitter rather quickly, it’s an excellent bagged tea and does not disappoint

So, a strong black tea and a lemon tea walk into a bar. They go to a hotel, have a great night and bask in each other’s glory. The lemon tea decides he wants to marry the black tea even though everyone knows that bergamot and black tea are actually soulmates. They have a baby together. However, they didn’t know that they were in fact, brother and sister. This tea is that mutated baby.

“It can’t be that bad” you say. Oh, but it is!

It’s got a strong lemon taste; and no, i don’t mean bergamot. This is black tea if it was garnished with a 10-day-old lemon with a zester. The brew is so pathetically bland, underbodied and unbalanced that I might have to say that the great Disney powers that be blended this with the intention of pissing people off.

Bleh. Considering a toss out to the bin.

Whoa, sorry to hear it was a horrible tea, I love how you describe the mutation though!

It went down like this Steepsterites:
Oh! They have a Jasmine Green tea in this set, since the Mad Party Tea was serious enough of a blend to merit a Steepster mention, then it MUST be good.

Jasmine Green tea entails the visualizations of tiny fragrant jasmine blossoms floating into a cup of perfect golden jade liquid, complete with monks bowing in the background and an effervescent hum of prayer. Little did I know that I was wrong. Oh so very wrong.

I was filled with doubt, fear, and most importantly, I doubted my $20+ purchase of tea blended by the hands of corporate Disney. My biggest question still left unanswered is why a tea labeled “Jasmine Green Tea” would at all taste like cauliflower?

I received from Mad Tea Party Blend teabags for my birthday, and tried my first cup today (with milk). A lovely, fruity cup of tea that is interesting with an attempt at complexity, but the flavour feels a bit confused. The apricot is front and center, but there seems to be some notes jostling for attention. It’s almost cloying in its fragrance. Still, a delightful, happy cup of tea for a nice afternoon treat.

You can’t expect much from a gift shop tea, and it’s clearly not for people who are used to tea. Blended with ginger, apricot and other fruits, the aroma is spectacular but the flavor is dull and confusing. Bitter tasting for a long steep,and not a very pleasant tea in general.

I love the name of this tea! But too bad it’s just plain apricot.

AmazonV

the ingredients say there are other flavors hiding in there…they just don’t seem to be coming out to say hi!

Bad… but not that bad.
The jasmine flavor is not strong enough to block out the green tea flavor completely so there is some kind of balance… I didn’t say it was a great balance but whatever…
It’s better than bentley’s.
It’s got a cute little disney flower picture on it… that’s nice.
Yea I didn’t like this one. But… it’s not horrible…

Imagine my surprise at seeing a picture I took and posted on my blog (Rosemary’s Sampler) on this site! I will accept it as a compliment, I guess. This tea is enjoyable, if you like flavored black teas!

i just had to make a cup :) its been calling to me ever scene my last post about it.
it is a very smooth and fruity tea. i would love to try this iced but i have noticed my mug is now empty ;) maybe with a second infusion? it is defiantly not an every day cup in my book, but for someone who is bonkers for apricots it may be. i only wish it tasted more like a flavored black and not an herbal.

I just rated Mad Party Tea based on a hot tea, and I think it would be delightful iced, too!

Taken with a little sugar.
The first time I made this I followed the instructions on the box thinking that even if it was a green Disney might have had a reason for saying bring the water to a boil… They don’t know what they are talking about so for trying the remainder of their teas I’m going to use my own know how and make them the way that it will taste good.
So… the tea really smells like fake blueberry! And it tastes fake like blueberry candy too! So if you like artificial blueberry candy (like I do oddly enough) you’ll love this.
And in case you were wondering about the ‘tea’ part of it… Disney took the vast majority of green tea flavor out the equation so you don’t have to worry about it mucking with your fake blueberries!
I know the only reason I like this is because it’s an Alice tea… there is no real merit to this tea what-so-ever… but I’m ok with that.
*This review is TOTALLY biased by my Disney nostalgia. But honnestly it’s not bad… and I have told the truth about what it tastes like. But if it were any other company I would have ripped it apart and not told you of my love of blueberry candies.

Trish McEvoy makes this candle called Wild Blueberry Vanilla. It was a bit of a splurge, but it’s lasted me all year and it was sooooo worth it. Makes me melt with its goodness.

Kitch3ntools

im a bit of a disney nerd (drinking out of my lion king mug right now) so i totally get where your coming from with the biased opinion :) (i have one too lol) now that i know it tastes like blueberry candies, i wish i bought some of that too :)

Madison Bartholemew

The only annoying this about the disney tea is it doesn’t seem like you can just get individual flavors. I can only find the 3 tin or 12 hat pack.
Unless you would like to tell me I’m wrong which would make me happy!

I took this with one tsp sugar and milk…. and without anything.
Without anything it’s bland… a liptonesk plain black with the smell if anything of vanilla.
And then you put milk and sugar in it and the flavors do open up.
The tea itself is mild with little to any astringency and with milk and sugar it is rich, sweet and smooth.
AND PLAIN!
You know that tea that you go back to when you are just trying to enjoy watching a movie and it’s late so you want so caffeine but you don’t want to worry about mucking up you cup by missing a timer or anything silly?
This is mine.
*Yes… I like older Disney movies … so I may be a bit biased for the novelty.

I thought I opened this prior to now but I was wrong. How did I let this get by me? Regardless…here is the review…It is a true black looking tea. The French Vanilla Aroma is strong prior to steeping, just starting to steep, and maybe a little bit after steeping a while. The barely-there French Vanilla Taste is ok with me as I am not a Vanilla Freak but if you are looking for boo-koo Vanilla this is not it. It’s a fairly strong over all black tea taste with a hint of french vanilla for a bagged tea but it’s really the Disney Memories that come thru on this tea, isn’t it!? All-in-All fairly good bagged tea.

I didn’t know Disney also dealt in tea. Well well. Inspiring though… eyes kettle

Auggy

Uh oh. I fell a vanilla wave coming on.

TeaEqualsBliss

@ Angrboda – check out the other Disney Teas I logged…some are better than others but still fun regardless.
@ Auggy – LOL – time will tell!?

Jillian

Yes, a vanilla wave would be awesome! dives into her tea cupboard to see what she has XD

“boo-koo Vanilla” raises eyebrow As a Canadian can I murder you for mangling the French language? Please? ;P

TeaEqualsBliss

LOL – I was raised near the N. Falls Area – NY side – so I sometimes spell things with the “U” but the boo-koo is just a personal slang word, I guess, not an intentional botch of the Canadian…I LOVE Canada! :P

Jillian

I know, I’m just being silly (and anal!) because I was in french immersion during school. Not sure how a Quebecois would react though, some of them can be quite millitant about their language! XD

TeaEqualsBliss

I hear ya! LOL :)

I was skeptical. The balanced taste of this tea and the warm apricot overtones convinced me that Disney really can do tea. This is not a challenging or bitey tea, and its surprising lack of acidity makes it a really good choice when you just want a nice soothing tea. It isn’t what I would serve at a mad tea party, but it is exactly what I would pull out to comfort a heartbroken friend (and it would go quite well with salted chocolate)

I couldn’t agree more teaequalsbliss!! The blueberry is intense but satisfying.
