On this trip to Orlando I only purchased one item (other than photos) to bring home. After taking tea at the Garden View Lounge, we stopped at the lobby gift store to see if there were any new tea items. I thought that this was an interesting teapot with its metal sleeve with “Wonderland” cutouts and the metal lid with its little cup and saucer. The glass liner is removable, although I found it rather difficult to remove since it is a very tight fit.
There is a plunger type lid that you push down to trap the tea leaves after brewing.
The Mad Tea Party blend loose tea is a medium flavor strength. The label lists Indian black tea, ginger, peach and apricot flavors. (But no mustard – don’t let’s be silly!) I found the tea to be quite good – much better than their Official Unbirthday tea in bags.
The gift shop had some pretty china teapots and teacups in the “Alice” theme. I was hoping to find a new tea theme Disney trading pin, or even a Grand Floridian pin, but there haven’t been any new ones lately. I’ll have to post about my Disney tea theme trading pins sometime.
