Beauty and the Beast Teas

I'm sure that special Beauty and the Beast themed products are nothing new these days, but knowing I'm really into tea (as well as the fairy tale) my friend sent me this link to the limited edition Twinings tea in honor of the Disney movie:
"English tea company Twinings has debuted special-edition Beauty and the Beast packaging($15 for 4) on some of its herbal tea blends, and it's sure to bring a smile to any Disney-lover's face.
The Lemon and Ginger tea features Emma Watson as Belle in her blue dress, while Belle in her iconic yellow dress adorns the packaging of the Camomile, Honey, and Vanilla flavor. The Pure Peppermint tea features the famous scene of Belle and the Beast dancing. Lastly, the Orange and Cinnamon Spice Tea features our favorite teapot, Mrs. Potts. Luckily for us, the teas will be available in the US in leading grocery stores and specialty stores until December of this year."
The boxes would be fun to collect, but they just put a new graphic on basic teas that already existed. I would have loved to see special blends created in honor of the fairy tale. A rose tea would be an obvious choice; I can imagine a flavored black tea called "Enchanted Castle" and a calming chamomile blend in honor of Mrs. Potts. If you could create a BATB themed tea, what would it be?

  1. Oh my, I want some. But I agree, a special B&B tea blend would be even better. I like your rose tea idea; and how about a really earthy, spicy blend for the Beast?

    1. Ooh yes that would be perfect. Maybe Pu Erh as the base?

  2. Have you ever visited Adagio Teas? I highlighted them on the blog ages ago (years!) for their Disney Villain blends but there are a ton of other fairy tale teas too. I think you can create an account and make our own tea blend to add to the options (not sure how it works). I've used them couple of times - really lovely teas!
    Anyway, there are a few on the Beauty and the Beast theme:

    1. I remember when you posted about them and I went to the website! They have a location in Chicago and a couple in the suburbs but nothing too close to me so I've never actually been there. But I love the idea of creating your own blends!

  3. Funny there wasn't a rose tea blend in there! Also surprised that there wasn't a black tea as well and all the teas were caffeine free. But otherwise, a very smart move on Disney's and Twinings's parts. If I were to make a tea...maybe it would be a mix of rose and passion fruit? Or a very soothing flower mix tea, something to drink after a nice walk through a garden.

    Have been following your blog here and there and really happy to see how far it's come!

    1. I love the idea of a garden-inspired flower tea! Especially with spring here and flowers starting to bloom.

      And thank you!
