Mad Tea Party Blend

The trip to Disney provided a memory bank full of fantastic adventures, photographs of happy days, and a once-in-a-life time experience. Actual souvenirs were purchased on a limited basis as the thought of taking three kids into any of the amazing gift shops just was beyond our scope of fun. I did manage to steal a moment in a gift shop and purchased a tin of the Disney Wonderland TEA, The Official Unbirthday Tea. The tin is full of clever little quips, for example, it mentions 'you'll be simply mad about this premium...tea', and after the description of the ingredients (premium blend of Indian Black Teas, ginger peach & apricot flavor) it states (But no mustard ~ don't let's be silly!). In another spot on the tin, they ask the question 'Why is a raven like a writing desk?' The reader is then directed to the other side of the tin for the answer, and then in the next sentence you're informed that the answer isn't on the other side of the tin, but you're welcome to look. Someone had fun deciding what to put on this tin! Another side provides directions on How To Make Hot Tea (a.k.a. Uncold Tea) as instructed by The Mad Hatter. Start at the beginning (and when you come to the end...stop). Somewhere among the silliness you can actually find the directions, with the suggestion that your clock be two days slow.

Drink me!
It's an absolutely perfect souvenir!

What a fun tin. I hope the tea is good. I would love a tin like that for the Mad Hatter Tea Party I think I will do later this year.

I'm a HUGE fan of Alice's Adventures, and an Anaheim local. I've been searching for such a long time for really good Alice merchandise! When I saw all the different types of tea, I nearly fell (down down down).

I first bought the big box of 12 flavors to sample them all ($16.00), but went back for the beautiful tin box that the loose leaf tea comes in ($7.00).

I must say that if you're looking for a tea to really drink, the tin is the way to go. The loose leaf has so much more flavor than the tea bags, and the Mad Tea Party blend is the best flavor, anyway!

ooh, PS: Just last weekend, I spotted an incredibly cute Alice tea cup at The Emporium (The really big store on Main Street)! It's perfect for this tea :)

Ms. Funk, my girlfriend went to Disney and brought back a tin of the Mad Tea Party Blend. We're addicted and soon will be out - do you know of any sites online where we can get our fix??

Any info is greatly appreciated.

I bought this blend for a friend and she loves it. Now I am back at Disney and she wants me to get her some more. I can't remember where I bought it, but will look and hopefully I can find some for her.
