QE Iced Tea in Buffet

Recommended Posts

When I was on the QM, there was only one iced tea dispenser in the buffet. Does the QE have iced tea in the buffet and are there multiple dispensers?  I know this may sound trivial, but we do love our iced tea!

Hello annmarz.  QE has three drinks stations on deck 9, one located centrally at the start of the buffet area, and the other two located port and starboard at the aft ends of the buffet, near the doors out to the aft pool and bar area.  All three stations have coffee, tea bags and hot water, ice water and ice, and juice/iced tea dispensers.  The Twinings tea bag selection for hot tea is a little more extensive at the central location.  All stations have ceramic mugs and drinking glasses, and the aft stations also have paper cups.


Bringing coffee outside to one of the deck 9 aft tables and enjoying the sea breeze is one of my favourite habits on QE or QV, especially early morning on sea days when the ship is still mostly asleep.

Does anyone know the brand of flavoured drinks that the dispensers in the buffet areas supply?

We mainly used the dispensers for water or ice but occasionally tried the flavoured drinks.

It was like a cordial type of beverage not fresh juice.

Thanks for the answer.

Went  to the website for details of ingredients, not a lot of detail. 

Did see the staff filling the dispensers from large containers.

We mainly drink tea and like Twining's brand .

The hot water from the dispenser was not boiling water probably a safety measure, but the tea in pots at afternoon tea was very good, not stewed.

Of course we could boil water in the kettle in the bedroom. 

We did not see fresh fruit juice available, freshly squeezed anywhere but perhaps we did not look hard enough?

We boarded QV today in Rio.  Pics of the Deck 9 buffet drink dispensers shown below.  I recall QE's being the same or similar.
