I’m delighted to announce that Stephen Twining from Twinings of London is returning to Epcot from May 25-29. He will be meeting with guests and signing tea boxes from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. each day in The Tea Caddy shop at United Kingdom Pavilion. A tenth-generation member of the famous tea family, Stephen joined Twinings in 1985 and now serves as Director of Corporate Relations for Twinings of London. You may recall I discussed his visit in 2013 on the Disney Parks Blog. In anticipation of his return visit, I stopped by the pavilion to discover the newest tea-themed products.
At The Tea Caddy, guests can now create their own unique mixes of favorite tea blends. The shop offers a wooden, single slot Twinings tea box which can be filled with 10 select individual tea bags.
The location also carries five blends from the newly introduced large-leaf Discovery Collection. The blends are each presented in beautiful drawer-like packaging. Blends offered include Golden Tipped English Breakfast, Budding Meadow Camomile, London Strand Earl Grey, Berry Blush Infusion, and Medley of Mint. Each box contains 15 large-leaf tea bags.
I spotted a special blend of tea celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday. The tea is packaged in a beautifully illustrated, limited edition collector’s tin. The Tea Caddy will have a limited quantity of this tea available while supplies last. It will pair nicely with one of four commemorative cups featuring the queen.
Finally, these two cups made me laugh. I think I should add them to my kitchen.
I hope to see you at Epcot later this month!
