RECIPE: Celebrating Twining’s Presence at EPCOT
If you’ve paid a visit to the UK pavilion at EPCOT no doubt you’ve seen the importance that Disney World’s collaboration with Twinings has on bringing a real sense of authenticity to the World Showcase!
When I think of Twinings, I initially think of the Tea Caddy which has been one of the most popular places to stop in the UK Pavilion since it opened back in 1982. But if you’re on the lookout for the tea brand that Brits know and love, you don’t have to go to EPCOT to find it! Twinings is available at more than 80 food and beverage locations across both Disney World and Disneyland Resorts. This is in addition to the fact that you’ll find both Green Tea and English Breakfast Blend in most Disney resorts and hotels as well as onboard Disney Cruise Line’s ships!
For those that will be back at the Tea Caddy during the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays there’s a couple of awesome items that you’ll want to be on the lookout for that we think make the perfect Christmas gifts. A Cold Infuse Starter Kit is a great option for those who love fruit flavors. Another favorite is the Classics Collection Gift Box which features an assortment of Black, Green and Herbal teas.
If you’re a fan of Twinings you’ll also want to be on the lookout for a new variety of teas with probiotics, ginseng or vitamins to help support body and mind. You’ll also find awesome stocking stuffers including the limiited-edition Christmas Tea blend (which just so happens to be the Tea Caddy’s number one seller of Twinings.)
Also during your Festival of the Holidays be sure to stop by Holiday Sweets & Treats Holiday Kitchen located near Port of Entry. A highlight on the menu is the Chocolate Peppermint Shake featuring Twinings Peppermint Cheer.
