Tchaikovsky's Christmas classic 'The Nutcracker' introduced the world to what has become one of ballet's best-known sequences: the dance of the Sugarplum Fairy. Thanks to his famed score and beautiful retelling of this ancient tale, the Christmas season can't be called complete without taking in a performance of this stunning piece of dance and pageantry.

We've done our best to capture the grace and style of Tchaikovsky's piece through the creation of this mouth-watering, organic black tea blend. Inspired by a performance of the Nutcracker, put on by his daughter's own ballet school many years ago, our Master Blender carefully concocted this tea to capture all the wonder and delight of the holiday season.

Like the intricate music that drives the piece, this skillfully crafted blend combines high-grown, seasonal Ceylon teas with tart pieces of dried fruit, delicate flower petals and all-natural flavoring for a cup that's pure magic. Brew a pot today and drink in the majesty and wonder of the holiday season. The perfect finish for the perfect Christmas get-together.

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with boiling water for 3-7 minutes.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 5 minutes.  Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher.  Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 5 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves.  Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.

NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves.  Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion.  Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
