    We will be going to the EF&G Festival in 2016 and I heard there was a free tour of the English Tea Garden? All I know is you have to go to The Tea Caddy as early in the day as possible? Could you give me some insight and more information on the tour? T

    Judy, after a cold and snowy winter, I bet you will love welcoming spring with the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! Events and entertainment included in the festival are subject to change year to year, so there is no guarantee that The English Tea Garden tour will be included in the 2016 festival. This is a very popular tour, so I will keep my fingers crossed that you do get a chance to enjoy it! I did some research for us, as I am planning to take part in several tours while in Epcot this spring, and found some blooming great information to share with you.

    Twinings of London Tea presents the free, guided 20-minute tour of the English Tea Garden in Epcot’s United Kingdom Pavilion, during which Guests discover the art and history of tea blending. Tours are typically held Monday through Thursday at 3:45 p.m. and 6:15 p.m., and Friday through Sunday at 1:00 a.m., 3:45 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. You do need to register in advance at The Tea Caddy located at the United Kingdom Pavilion on the day of the tour. You will be given a ticket that you can exchange at the end of the tour for several free tea packets. There is also an opportunity to sample several cold brew teas. In previous years, the tours have filled quickly, so avoid a thorny situation by heading over to The Tea Caddy to sign up as soon as the World Showcase opens.

    I hope this information helps you plan your trip for next year! Please let me know if you have any further questions.
