Not too long ago, a kiosk called Joy of Tea popped up in Epcot across from the beautiful China pavilion. I knew the little red pagoda sold several different kinds of tea, but I had no idea of the extent of the fun and interesting menu!
While wandering around Epcot earlier this month my stomach started growling while I was walking toward China — perfect timing! I had no idea of the food offerings at Joy of Tea — or the alcoholic drinks! There were so many options that I had a hard time choosing.
When I was told the the Green Tea Plum Slush wasn’t ready yet, I quickly opted for the non-alcoholic Strawberry Oolong Tea Slush instead. Then I had to make the choice between the edibles… lovely Egg Rolls, Chinese BBQ Pork Buns, and Curry Chicken Pockets! I asked the cast member in the kiosk which one was his favorite and bought that — a Curry Chicken Pocket.
Believe it or not, the pastry was delicious! The curry added a slightly spicy kick to the warm, savory chicken — it was the perfect choice for a rainy, cool day.
And the Strawberry Oolong slush was the perfect accompaniment. A sweet, strong, tart strawberry flavor was accented with the slightly bitter ice tea — a lot more depth of flavor that you’ll find in other theme park slushies, that’s for sure!
This place is the perfect “tide-me-over” spot to stop for a late afternoon snack. You’ll see that many of the items on the menu are Disney Dining Plan Snack Credit snacks, too! Just grab a quick bite and head over to watch the acrobats…or go visit the soldiers inside the China pavilion! Enjoy!
