We are delighted to announce a festive collaboration that will warm you up this Christmas: we have teamed up with Edinburgh-based leaf tea company eteaket on a range of teas inspired by The Nutcracker!

This festive partnership comes ahead of our winter tour of The Nutcracker – our largest ever, commencing in December and encompassing 74 performances across six cities – and offers ballet fans the opportunity to buy three varieties of tea themed around the classic Christmas ballet.

The three types of tea are as follows:

The Nutcracker is a special edition loose leaf Sri Lankan black tea combining spicy brown cinnamon and warming Cocoa with light yellow sunflower petals to take you on a magical journey to cold lands with roaring fires. Great with or without milk.

Waltz of the Flowers is a caffeine-free herb and fruit infusion containing rosehips, hibiscus, chamomile, rose, apple, blackcurrant leaves and blackcurrant pieces. Blended to be enjoyed hot or iced.

Sugar Plum Fairy is a Spring Sencha green tea containing sumac berries, red rosehips, hibiscus, lemon myrtle, dried cranberries, cherries and orange peel.

A box of Nutcracker tea is available to buy individually for £8.50 (80g), or as part of a tea trio with Waltz of the Flowers and Sugar Plum Fairy for £11.95 (3 x 20g)

Don't forget that our Christmas gift shop is now open, and in addition to our range of tea we have a selection of festive gifts for 2021 – from Nutcracker dolls to Christmas tree baubles – designed to inspire and delight.
