This Thanksgiving – Stephen Twinning of Twinnings of London Travels to Epcot– Calling all tea lovers and Anglophiles everywhere – get yourself to Epcot to meet this tenth-generation member of this famous tea family! Stephen Twinings will be visiting Walt Disney Resort during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend of November 21-24.
Twining joined the Twinings Tea business in 1985 and is now serving as the Director of Corporate Relations. If all things English are your cup-of-tea, you are in for a treat! Tea lovers have the opportunity to meet Stephen Twining and have merchandise signed at The Tea Caddy Shop at the United Kingdom pavilion in Epcot! Do you fancy a cuppa? You are in luck! Visitors of The Tea Caddy can hand-pick their own collection of Twining Tea when they meet with Stephen Twinning!
A unique holiday gift for the tea lover – a custom selected collection of teas in a special box signed by Stephen Twining! A gift that will bring a smile and a story to tell over tea and biscuits! Visitors can purchase a Twinings tea box, made of wood, to then fill with 10 individual tea bags they select!
In addition to the Twinings tea offerings at the shop, 12 specialty blends from the Walt Disney World Discovery Collection are available. Conessiures have choices such as Pure Sencha Green Tea, Two Seasons Darjeeling, Medly of Mint or Budding Meadow Chamomile. These distinctive blends come in boxes of 15-large leaf tea bags and are only found at The Tea Caddy shop.
When you enter the shop the smell of the holidays is in the air. Though the weather outside is, quite frankly, still warm in Florida, it is chilly in other climes. A cup of tea is just the thing to warm up when it is cold outside. In the still warm south, perhaps a tall glass of the iced version may better suit you. Either way, a stop in this quaint shop will leave you happy.
Looking for a place to have a spot of tea? Look no further than the Rose & Crown Pub and Dining Room Tea Experience. A tradition worth experiencing in a place filled with old world charm. Space is limited in the tea room so reservations are encouraged. Take time to slow down and relax in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. It will do you good!
What is your favorite way to relax? We would love to hear your suggestions here at Chip and Co.!
