INFORMATION:
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 an 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.

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100C/212F

HOT BREWING METHOD:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Pitcher): (To Make 1 Liter/Quart):
Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of loose tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1 cups/315ml over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the tea. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish 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. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about.)

ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving):
Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the tea. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional serving. Sweeten and/or add lemon 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. (Note: Some luxury quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of luxury quality and nothing to worry about!)

FOOD SAFETY ADVISORY: We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today's water has been known to carry viruses, parasites, and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illnesses.

RECOMMENDATION: We recommend the use of our '1 Cup of Perfect Tea' measuring spoon for best results. Please contact us to place an order.

ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: For a greater antioxidant benefit brew longer and use more tea.
