Location: Royal Anandapur Tea Company is located directly across from Yak & Yeti in Asia, which is also near Kali River Rapids.
Food Type: This is another of the Joffrey’s kiosks that serves coffee products and pastries among a few other items. This particular establishment specializes in tea.
Dining Plan: Most items are available for a snack credit, but some aren’t.
Some examples of specialty teas (they change out, so will likely be different):
Unique items: Many of the teas are unique, but the items on the regular menu are available at the other Joffrey’s locations, including the kiosk outside the main entrance and just after you cross the bridge into Discovery Island. You may have also seen them outside Epcot, across from Tower of Terror’s exit, and at the Transportation and Ticket Center.
- Lines are almost always extremely short because it’s nestled away behind shrubs.
- The frozen drinks are particularly refreshing on a hot day.
- Joffrey’s Coffee is much better than the Nescafe you’ll find at most other quick services and restaurants.
- The specialty teas are often overlooked, though you’d have a tough time selling me a hot tea in July. The iced teas are unique and high quality.
- If you’re in the back of the Park near Everest or Kali River Rapids, it’s convenient.
- Prices are on the high side and guests on the Disney Dining Plan can only order the small version for a snack credit.
Value: Pricing is in line with the rest of Disney property, including the other Joffrey’s stands. The $6 Frozen Drink pricing is a bit tough to stomach, but it’s “only” about $2 more than reasonable.
Reputation: The Joffrey’s stands are a lifesaver for those looking for a break from the resort Nescafe. All of the drinks are very good and it doesn’t look like you could go wrong with a pastry, bagel, or muffin either.
An example of the Large Frozen Cappuccino. Florida is virtually always too hot for coffee or hot tea as far as I’m concerned. This tastes great and is incredibly refreshing in the heat, particularly with the caffeine/sugar bump. It’s easy to drink and there’s quite a bit of it.
There are tables across the way at Yak & Yeti that may be unoccupied. You’ll also find tables up and down the walkway that connects Africa with Asia.
Just your usual sugar and sweetener along with stirring sticks. Ask if you’d like something specific – they probably have it back there.
