Christmas isn’t complete without a performance of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. You probably didn’t think it was possible to make a tea out of a ballet, but that didn’t stop us! A caffeine-free rooibos plays host to flavors of marzipan, cocoa, plum, and peppermint, while decorative candies in the shape of snowflakes and silver balls dissolve in the hot water to give the drink a nice sweetness.

    It's sweet and glittery. It is fairly whimsical, and it's a fun tea to have with kids. It's definitely on the sweet side, but I didn't mind it.

    It's amazing! I wish it was available year round. My go to dessert/after dinner tea because it's caffeine free! Rich nutty flavor.

    Whenever I drink Nutcracker, I'm always reminded of my wonderful time living in St Louis, and of a specific sci-fi book I was reading when I first drank this tea! It's just the right sweetness, and it tastes great with soy milk (it's always exciting to find a tea that works just as well with non-dairy milk as it does with cow's milk)!

    My favorite holiday tea. So good, I wish this was available all year long. Hopefully, I just stocked up enough to make it through the next year. Please don't ever let this one go away completely!!!
