Tea at Disney

I spent a few days at Disney World last week, and was surprised to find quality tea options. At Epcot, a small stand in Asia had Ten Ren Ginsing Oolong Tea. It was bagged, but I wasn’t about to complain. I also had some TGY in the Animal Kingdom, and this stand has loose leaf. I was pretty excited to get quality tea that I did not have to bring and make myself. Disney is the best at quality.

Does the China pavilion at Epcot still have the frozen teas? I think they had a frozen peach oolong that was very good. Not really a pure tea, but a nice and very unique treat. It’s been too long since I’ve been to Disney :( Where was the stand at in Animal Kingdom?

There were frozen flavored teas, but I cannot remember which stand had them. The tea stand in the Animal Kingdom was near Expedition Everest. I believe the ride is relatively new.

Yeah the frozen ones should be in/near the China pavilion. Cool to hear they have a tea stand (with loose leaf) by Expedition Everest. That ride is awesome. Now I really want to go just to see that tea stand! Even with the Florida resident discounts I don’t have the money right now :(

I did notice last time I was there that they were starting to market tea with Alice in Wonderland stuff. They had a tea press and a set of black teas (but in bags)

There were other places where tea was highlighted in the park. I know they had tea sets in the England section of Epcot. They had a Twinings display somewhere too. It is pretty cool.

That’s surprising but encouraging, I would not expect to find great tea at a place like Disney. I agree that Ten Ren is very good among bagged teas. I especially like their Ten Wu tea. They’re the company that first introduced me to greener oolongs.

I wonder if Disney is starting to sell the loose leaf and better quality bagged teas for the high volumes of Asian tourists. Just a thought. I doubt it’s for Americans.

The England part of Epcot has a whole store dedicated to tea. They also have a garden full of camellia sinensis plants, lavender, etc. Pretty cool stuff.

Next time I am there, I know were I will be going…

My brother went to DisneyLAND on a trip and brought me back actual Disney brand tea… Madhatter and… Something else. One was ginger peach, the other was bergamot something or other… They were pretty good!

Could be mad tea party and topsy turvey. They’re in my cupboard :)

I got the Madhatter tea as well years ago in a cool tin, it was english breakfast, it was good!
