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.
So Santa did the same thing, this candy cane tea is what Santa uses to get his reindeer all in a row for that special night of deliveries.
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 and with real pieces of candy cane 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!

The Amazing Tea Company recommends 2-3 minutes
IDEAL BREWING TEMPERATURE: 85ºC/185ºF. For Food Safety reasons bring water to 100ºC/212ºF and let it cool down to 85ºC/185ºF.
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. Briefly infuse with freshly boiled water and then pour off. Re-infuse the tea and pour after about 1 minute or longer to taste.
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD (Individual Serving): Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose leaf or 1 tea bag 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 leaves. Cover and let steep for 3 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea leaves, or removing the bags. 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 black tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.
