I'm kind of a tea snob. I drink bagged tea at work and when I'm in a rush, but if I had my druthers, I would exclusively drink high quality loose tea. I have many small bags of different loose teas and a few different pots. I like big malty black teas and green teas that taste like popcorn and smoky lapsang souchong.
What I'm trying to tell you is that I know all about foofoo teas and I like them and do not need to be convinced otherwise.
I received a little gift tin of teas from Disney World after my mom and relatives went there earlier this year. The dang Mad Tea Party Blend is surprisingly good for a bagged "souvenir" tea. It has some fruity, flowery notes, but also a bit of gingery heat behind it. It's actually a really nice tea to have in my drawer at work. I was shocked to find that I really enjoyed it.
But I'm down to one bag and I don't find myself in the Magic Kingdom regularly, nor do I want to buy 18 other teas in a gift set to get 6 bags of this. I'm sure it's a proprietary blend for Disney. I've Googled all over trying to find a wholesaler hiding it somewhere.
The ingredient list is as follows: Premium blend of Indian Black Teas, Safflowers, Calendula Petals, Ginger Bits, Apricot Bits, Peach and Apricot Flavors. It appears as though The Mouse offered it loose in a tin at one point as well as the bagged version I have.
Have any of you enjoyed this tea and found anything similar? I see that someone on Adagio made this blend,
but there are no follow-up reviews to see if it comes close.
Help me make more Mickey Mouse tea!
