New Winnie the Pooh Ears Spotted at the Tea Caddy in EPCOT
That silly old bear is up to it again with darling new ears spotted today by our MickeyBlogger at the Twinings Tea shop. The popular boutique located in the United Kingdom Pavillion at EPCOT is officially known as the Tea Caddy.
The delightful plush ears stand out thanks to their signature color choices. The same iconic yellow the covers our favorite bear stuffed with fluff also covers the outside of the ears. The bright red often found on Pooh Bear’s shirt (and coordinating balloon) highlights the inside of the band.
A sweet honeybee embelishment swirls to the top of the left ear. The buzzing bee looks as though its about to fly right off. It must have a beehive to reach somewhere nearby.
As with so many things Winnie the Pooh, the etching on the side offers a simple and inspiring Pooh-ism.
“Today is my favorite day” certainly characterizes any day spent wandering World Showcase with friends and family.
The super-soft ears retail at $29.99. Spot them within the merchandise area of the Tea Caddy, the popular tea emporium at the United Kingdom pavillion. Shoppers often delight in the Alice in Wonderland and Mary Poppins-themed merchandise also available in the retail location.
The shop features iconic British sweets and cookies as well as an arrray of Twinings Teas. Many of the blends are quite hard to find outside of the theme park. Royal memorabilia, upscale scarves and scents also highlight the store’s offerings.
For those looking for inspiration, the Twinings Tea Tour continues this month as part of the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival. The tour is self-guided and presents clever floral arrangements that educate guests on the benefits of each speciality tea. You will definitely want to make room in your suitcase for a few souvenir blends.
