A blend of dependable black teas from Africa produces a rich, robust, dark cup. Great in the morning to help get the motor started or in the afternoon to keep it running. This cup is nice with a splash of warm milk. This tea was featured in the New York Times' Book Review.

Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping black tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil. Then pour water over tea and steep for 3-5 minutes if using a tea bag or full-leaf.

This is the perfect replacement for my morning coffee. Two bags in 500 MLs of boiling water and I'm off to the races. It seems to deliver a more robust, faster jolt of caffeine that did my former morning ritual of two K-Cups of Caribou. And with a smooth taste and less chance of a unhappy tummy (I drink my coffee and tea unadulterated so how it hits an empty stomach is important).
Perfect with a splash of milk

Dear Minister or Tea,
This is one of your best teas. Add just a tad of milk--no sugar needed--and you have a nearly perfect cup.
Please keep this tea in stock!
Please Keep This!!

Do NOT get rid of this tea! I need the caffeine benefits of black tea, but every kind I've tried is too bitter, even if I only steep for a short time. Bitterness is NOT an issue with this one, so I end up drinking a couple 20oz mugs daily. Best Black Tea I've Found!!
i am addicted to this tea

This is a very good tea. I agree that it is not exceptionally strong or robust, but neither is it weak. It is very smooth and with a nice flavor - at least to me!
I hope they will keep this one around permanently.
