Finally, my blog review of this tea!
http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/07/24/mad-tea-party-blend-from-disney-wonderland-tea-tea-review/

I did it purely to show off the awesomeness of the tin the tea comes in, lol!

I did have some MTPB iced, it was okay. I wish there was less bitterness in the black base, and better, more natural ginger peach flavoring. Pretty ho hum overall.

Iced

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.

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 30 sec

They have a really cute tea set too that is also Alice & Wonderland themed.

Seeing the name of this tea it make me think of the teacups ride at Disneyland. And then I hear the Unbirthday song.

Okay, my sister is one of those people who LOVES Disneyland. Like she goes every time she’s in town, sometimes being 2-4 times a year. She always wants me to go, but I bail every time after seeing the $125 price tag. Last time she went she surprised me with a tin of this tea.

DRY: Spicy ginger and peachy sweet smell. Really cute tin btw – very Alice in Wonderland all over it.
STEEPED: Sweet fruity and gingery over dark brown tea.

TASTE: Warm flavored black tea, strongly flavored with apricot with a zing of ginger at the end of sip. The black tea is bordering on bitter.
Sweetened, the apricot comes out more, however this cup got quite bitter as it cooled. I wonder if I over steeped or added too much leaf. I think adding milk would fix this, but not into adding milk today.

WHO SHOULD SNAG THIS TEA: If you like apricot ginger, this is decent and a step above bagged tea. Also you should be a tea peep who likes to sugar and milk their teas. And finally, if you are a Disney fan, probably would love the tin. Heck, I’m not a Disney fan and I love the tin!

COMMENTS: I liked the first cup for the good apricot taste, but wasn’t anything super special. Then the black base got all bitter crazy on me, and it became a pour out. I could see this tea being a decent iced tea.

Ehhhh, overall not for me, but I’m keeping the tin!

I love Disneyland too. When we lived down there and my grandparents were still with us, every year they would get an annual pass for me and my oldest daughter (who was my only daughter at the time) for our birthdays because our birthdays are one day apart (Mine is May 30, hers is May 31). And we would go all the time. I love where we live now, but, Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm are what I miss most about Sunny SoCal!

I absolutely love Disney, too. Grew up in southern California, so went to Disneyland all the time as a kid. This past summer I went and saw all their tea stuff and freaked out!! Bought a glass tea press, but my cat ended up breaking it recently. Heartbroken :‘[
Anyway, I wasn’t a fan of this tea either haha.

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 :)

I am constantly buying differents teas. However, this tea was a gift from a friend who visited Disney. It came with a two other flavors. I went by smell to see which I would drink first. I think this tea is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. I do NOT put white sugar in it. I put a couple of teaspoons of brown sugar in the raw in it and it tastes great!!! I would like to buy just a box of the Lemon Honey Chamomile. It is delicious and smooth.

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 :)

First loose leaf tea I have had. It is wonderful. Fruity, citrus, and black tea are a nice combination. The smell of the tea is great!

Nik

I had no idea Disney have their own tea blends. I’ll have to get some just for the names and tins. :D

Dax

Yep, they have a bunch of different flavors :D Though this was the only loose leaf tea I could find.

The flavor is a lot stronger than the Mad Tea Party blend, for it being virtually the same just minus one or two ingredients. You also have to be very careful while steeping this one. Leave it in for just barely too long and the flavor is overwhelming.

But in the right doses, it’s a rather nice and dry tea that keeps me going when I have a deadline to meet.

One of my favorite teas EVER. It’s a nice and simple black tea with just the right amount of flavors. It smells wonderful and I can literally have multiple cups a night and still not tire of it.

So, three bags of tea steeped for 5 minutes in a bit of hot water, then fill the pitcher with cold water and stick in the fridge overnight. Time to try this puppy iced. Oh, also added 3/4 cup of simple syrup.

This is much nicer iced. I tried it first without sweetening, but it was just another iced green tea. It’s the sugar that I find brings out the blueberry notes. I’m much happier with this than I was with the hot tea. Nevertheless, it’s a good thing that I don’t have a lot of this hanging around.

Sil recently wrote a tasting note about a Disney tea, the Mad Tea Party Blend. Which reminded me that I have some Disney Wonderland tea that a friend gave me last year. So now I have to try it and see what it’s like.

I’ve been avoiding it because 1) it’s a bagged tea and I generally don’t like bagged teas anymore, and 2) it’s Disney, how good can they really make a tea? Well, dry, it smells like any ol’ tea bag (LOL). Steeped, it does smell like blueberries.

I drank the first mugful plain because it’s a green tea. I taste green tea with a faint hint of blueberry. So the scent was a tease! Or I did something wrong since everyone else who’s reviewed this can really taste the blueberry flavouring. Well, I did use boiling water like the vague instructions said.

Second mug: fresh tea bag, 80° water, tiny bit of sugar. Yes, way more blueberry flavour this time.

Like everyone else, I’m giving this tea a lot of leeway because it is Disney branded. I wouldn’t buy it for myself for sure. I think I’ll try some of this iced to see what that tastes like.

Quite pleasant. It is peachy with just a touch of ginger to give it an edge.

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!

Preparation
Iced 8 min or more

Operation Sipdown is in full effect! I’m trying to get through as many of the teas that I can before December hits, as I forsee christmas tea purchases in my future. I’ve managed to sort through my cupboard this weekend and now I have a pile of teas that are older or close to being finished that I can work on over the next few weeks :)

I still enjoy this tea as an every day sort of tea. It’s got a bit of flavoring without being overpowering so I won’t get tired of it.

I did a «clean up» myself this summer, or so I thought! For some strange reasons, I forgot that clean ups work only if you don’t order new stuff a zillion times after you did it! Now I’m back to square one, damn it!

Sil

Oh i’ve got three incoming orders plus the travelling tea box and a christmas swap! haha BUT at least i have a good idea of what I need to drink first…

What I’ve learned about working out… Make a tumbler of tea before you leave the house, so that due to the insane properties of my tumbler, by the time I’m done and on my way home, the tea has cooled off enough to let me drink it while I travel home haha. And that’s exactly what I did today. This tea is a nice, every day kinda of tea…and by that I mean it’s not super crazy flavour insane tea, but it’s not too bland and blah….it’s like the red rose orange period tea my parents drink every day. Except this taste nothing like that heh the is apricot goodness in a tea.

Having this with breakfast. Office-brewed (which means I just sort of pour boiling or once-boiled water, let it sit however long I remember, then drink).

Nothing too special here. Tastes good with some honey and soy milk. Good alternative to coffee in the morning. (The coffee maker at work needs some help.)

And it’s hot. Ow.

Thanks to Azzrian I was able to try this one!

I have tried about a half dozen other Disney teas and I have liked them for the most part. I thought I had tried this one but it was actually one of the others ones I was thinking of. It’s also been a while since I have had any Disney Tea to sip on so I am very thankful for this!

The black tea base is a sturdy-medium strength and the fruity and bergamot flavors are almost as strong as the black tea base, but not quite. The strengths of both the black tea base and the flavors work very well together. There are other fruity notes in addition to the bergamot. The bergamot isn’t overly astringent, tho.

This tea would make Walt proud!

I was curious to know, which Disney tea is your favorite?

This tea is delicious! It’s a nice black tea with a sweetness from the apricot and peaches and ginger. I added a little of natural agave to mine and it’s fabulous.

I find this to be extremely enjoyable as iced tea. Requires no sweetening, low tannin, so it doesn’t go foul after a day in the fridge. Now if I could just get it delivered in massive quantities all on it’s own . . .

Surprisingly good. Not as strong as traditional English Breakfast, but also lacking bitterness, and still refreshing.
