INFORMATION:
Kids have loved candy canes for a long, long time. According to legend, the peppermint variety most associated with the holidays was conceived in 1670 by the choirmaster of Cologne Cathedral. Looking for a way to quiet children down during long church services, he asked a local confectioner to create the sweet peppery sticks as a sort of pacifier.The candy was a hit.
 
Soon candy canes could be found in sweet shops throughout Europe, making their way to North America sometime in the early 19th century.These days, no Christmas Tree is complete without at least a good handful of red and white canes hanging from the boughs, waiting to be savored on Christmas morning.
 
And now, thanks to Candy Cane Burst black tea, you've got the perfect beverage to pair with them.Crafted using our proprietary blend of high-grown, seasonal black teas, Candy Cane Burst is made with real pieces of candy for a real blast of sweet mint. Serve this tea with a candy cane as a stir stick - Santa would approve.
 
Tastes like Christmas morning!

IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 100ºC/212ºF
 
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 1¼ 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 teas. 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 ½ 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. 
 
ANTIOXIDANT BENEFIT: For a greater antioxidant benefit brew longer and use more tea.
