Proving that success doesn't always happen overnight, the Nutcracker, masterpiece of famed composer Pyotr Illyich Tchaikovsky garnered mostly negative reviews following its debut performance in St. Petersburg on the 18th of December, 1892. The performance, which stretched well past Midnight, was called "insipid", "lopsided" and "ponderous" by unimpressed Russian critics. Now, well more than a century later, the ballet is so well enjoyed that for many, the Christmas season simply isn't complete without taking in a performance.

The tale, which focuses on the adventures of a little girl, Clara, her brother Fritz and a magical nutcracker that comes to life, takes viewers on a magical journey starting at home in a 19th century German chateau and ending most famously in the Land of Sweets, in a far away kingdom known as Confiturembourg, ruled by the beautiful Sugar Plum fairy. At this point in the story, the children, as well as the audience, are enchanted by the kingdom's various inhabitants - Chinese Tea dancers, Russian Candy Cane dancers and Danish Marzipan Shepherdess dancers, among others.

Now, we wouldn't be Master Tea blenders if we didn't think that list of performers sounded like a fabulous recipe for a deliciously soothing winter tea blend. So to honor Tchaikovsky's memory, we've decided to blend exactly that, a fabulous tea guaranteed to put a smile on your face even on the longest of winter's nights. Based on a luxury Rooibos, we've added the flavors of marzipan and fruit finished off with delicate snowflake candy quins and tiny silver ball candies for a dash of added theatrical flair. Like the ballet itself, this is one performance you don't want to miss.
