I love tea, so I rarely make a trip through Epcot without checking out what’s new at the Tea Caddy in the UK Pavilion.
The little shop is your stop for just about any variety of Twinings Tea that you might be looking for. You’ll also find an ever-changing host of snacks and British pantry items. But my favorite items to browse are the tea pots, teacups, and mugs you’ll find here.
I always spy something new. And my recent visit at the beginning of the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival didn’t disappoint.
Cupcake Tea Accessories
You know all those afternoons that you sit around, leisurely sipping tea and eating delicious cupcakes?
Right. Me neither.
But a girl can dream, can’t she?
So maybe daily cupcakes aren’t such a great idea for my waistline. But cups of tea? Score! Super good for you! So we might as well have our Cupcake Teapot. And hold the cupcakes. (At least some of the time. On Thursdays maybe?)
And while you’re at it, here’s a great coordinating Mug!
And Coasters, too!
And don’t you need a little calorie-free-ish cupcake-themed serenity in your life?
Alice in Wonderland Goodies
But there are also some really fun finds if you love a little madness in your tea party. Fans of Alice in Wonderland will like what’s coming next. These have been available in the parks for years, but just in case you haven’t seen them… .
Here’s the single serving tea set first. Perfect for those serene afternoon tea sessions.
The little One Cup Teapot is darling, and features Alice, the Mad Hatter, and the Cheshire Cat having tea.
The Teacup pictures Alice having what I’m sure is a maddening conversation with the March Hare.
There’s also a larger Teacup — rather a fancy Mug — that matches the set as well, if you prefer bigger cups.
This is my favorite, though! I love this wonky “Stacked Cup” Cup! And especially the little “Drink me” tag. 🙂
The black and white design is really striking. I think Alice fans would absolutely love this piece.
Here’s another Alice Words Mug that features lots of the fun sayings from the film.
And of course, what’s tea time without your…Shot Glasses? But seriously, I love the “Curiouser and curiouser” tag. It’s a pretty common saying in my household.
Finally, check out this adorable Mad Hatter Mug, shaped like the little crazy guy’s hat, of course.
And it has its own built in saucer. Perfection.
I thought I had enough teacups and teapots…but I’m rethinking that. I may need to clear out a cabinet or two. I mean, do we really need all those plates?
