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.
Black tea, sweet blackberry leaves, natural caramel and vanilla flavors, cardamom seeds

Awesomeness in a cuppa

Warm, mellow & delicious

What can I say – this tea is droolingly delicious. When I opened the canister I smelled the wondrous aroma of warm spice and burnt sugar (the cardamom and creme brûlée). It smelled familiar and exotic at the same time.
I added two tea bags into my 14oz mug. Added boiling water, a touch of sweetener and splash of half & half. As I lifted the cup to my mouth I the aroma of the tea wafted forth. It smelled scrumptious. My first sip gave my taste buds quite a treat. The warmth of the cardamom added an interesting, mellow contrast to the burnt sugary sweetness of the creme brûlée (I’m guessing it’s a combination of vanilla and caramel but either way it’s tasty). I didn’t find the flavors overwhelming. They seem to blend together well and offer a subtle flavor to the tea.
I can’t wait to sip more of this wonderfully warm and tasty tea. My only regret is that it’s not available in loose leaf.

This is a fabulous tasting tea. The cardamom lends a special taste to the classic vanilla tea. Must try. Hope the Republic will make this a permanent offering.
nice flavor, but can't taste the cardamom

Nice flavor, but I can't taste the cardamom. Reminds me of Republic of Tea's Caramel Vanilla or Vanilla Almond.

with a splash of half and half and some sugar..this tea is the best! Taste like creme brulee..and in warmer weather, it was great over ice...

I love creme brulee, so I knew I would like this tea. I did not realize this would be one of my favorite teas! Many teas smell great, but after brewing them, you lose a lot of the flavor you were expecting -- not the case with this tea!! It has a wonderful flavor and adding a touch or milk as the canister suggests makes it creamy like creme brulee.
Delicious to sip

Really enjoy this flavorful blend. Not only does it taste great, but the aroma is lovely as well! I also enjoy the beautiful artwork on the tin and the collaboration with the film. Really neat project for a great taste blend! The Republic of Tea never ceases to surprise me with their new flavor combinations that taste wonderful. I will be buying more!

Love this flavor. Smooth and rich; a traditional fall flavor tea --splash of milk really brings out the wonderful flavors.
