What I meant was, if I'm going to order it online, I might as well order it from England (the real country) instead of ordering it from the States.

"Special" is right! It's $2.99/box from the online store (plus shipping, which for small orders can raise the per unit price by >$1 per box).

So...what does this tea taste like? I'm a tea drinker and I'm always looking for something new. My usual for the holidays is a loose leaf tea called Cinnamon orange spice, is this tea anything like those flavors?
It would be so much easier to buy tea at WDW than bring my tea and tea ball with me.

I understand that. What I am trying to tell you is that if you really want the tea DO NOT EXPECT IT TO BE AROUND IN FEBRUARY!!!

I'm not good at describing a tea taste, but I would say it taste like Winter Tea with a bit more cinnamon.

I'm not sure what Winter Tea tastes like, but I like cinnamon so I will have to look for this in December.

I love this store and visit it whenever I am in EPCOT. I will make sure to stop in there next month we when are in WDW.

When we went in May 2012, I bought two boxes of the Lady Grey tea. Now I want to check out the Christmas tea after reading about it here

Haha, you all had me curious so I went down there. I can confirm that they have a ton right now.

It's a black tea with cinnamon and cloves. It's quite nice and I like it a lot.

I also picked up some of the Twinings honeypot stirers while I was there. There are super good too!

A friend and I were just talking about this tea and how you can not get it in England, UK.


We both are going to stock up on it from there.

Twinings sent me a free shipping code for purchases of $20+.
Here's the code:
THANKU

I ordered some Christmas tea ($2.99/box) Pumpkin Spice Chai ($1.99/box on sale) and some drinking chocolate ($5.99). I first found the drinking chocolate in Epcot and love it! I consider this order part of my upcoming trip budget. I don't remember the prices in Epcot but I'm sure they are higher than direct from the company.

Feel free to use the code on http://www.twiningsusa.com/

PS. My order shipped the same day I placed it and I got a nice confirmation email with a tracking number.

Are you sure you're not U.K.'ish?

My DD loves pretzel M&M's and we can get them at our local Target in big sacks. She just bought some last weekend. They went away for a while but now we can get them again. (Maybe it's regional.)

What she REALLY loved were Crispy M&M's, which instead of a pretzel in the middle had something like a Kix cereal piece. Haven't seen those in years.

Sold in grocery stores

I bought the tea in UK 2 Decembers ago, returned home (PA), went to the grocery store, and there it was for at least 1/2 the price. I buy it every at the grocery store. Now I hope I have not spoken too soon and it will not be available this year!

I just found out that they are actually selling Twinings tea in my local supermarket, but they won't get the Christmas tea :-(
