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.

Love this tea...one of my favorites
May 30, 2014
A nice tea - not as rich and strong as the decaf vanilla almond but still is more flavorful than a regular black tea. I love it in the afternoons.

Excellent balance of black tea and apricot flavors.
May 27, 2014
This is a very tasty tea. Needs no sweeteners. Excellent as a night time tea if you get the decaf.
May 24, 2014
Great taste, wish it came with caffeine also
May 20, 2014
Although I don't drink tea I buy the decaf for my sister who can only drink decaf because of a heart problem she loves all these different flavors.Thanks Much
If You Love Apricots, This Is The Tea For You

I love this tea. When I want to change it up, I let it steep in a two cup pot for hours, then add a small juice glass of Apricot Juice to it. Drink this room temperature or drop an ice cube or two into it. Yum! Love Apricots. Love this tea!
April 04, 2014
It is great as both a hot tea and an ice tea. In fact, I had one cup that was left on the table until lukewarm, and I finished it. It had great flavors still while other teas would have tasted dead.
Don't miss the caffeine!
March 30, 2014
Delicious, smooth, flavorful. Love this tea anytime of the day!

delicious, warm and deep flavors - love it!
March 12, 2014
I enjoyed this so much I bought 250 bags before I finished the canister I just bought. I put a little lemon & sugar in it to dazzle my taste buds and I am a very happy camper! A full bodied flavor. Thank You!

This tea makes the very best iced tea. My friends, family and customers all love it. We do find buying the 1b bag is not only economical but makes and even better iced tea. And we Texans know our iced tea!
Still hoping for a caffeinated version?!

I'm still hoping you'll develop a caffeinated version I can alternate with my daily staple, Ginger Peach.
Best tea ever
January 05, 2014
Makes the best iced tea I have ever tasted. Great hot, too. Smooth with a natural touch of sweetness. Perfect.
Better with Sweetener
January 03, 2014
The tea did not taste like apricot at all. With my second cup, I used a little sweetener and that brought out the apricot flavor! I love it with sweetener to bring out the flavor.
Best Apricot tea I've ever had!!
December 23, 2013
The real bits of apricot is what gives this tea it's amazing flavor. I highly recommend. Great as iced tea as well.
December 21, 2013
My all time favorite!
The best to drink day or nite since it is decaf. Perfect taste, not too strong.
I bought it first in the tin and now purchase the 50 count refill bag!
Very good tang to it.

SILVER SPRING, MD
Pleasant tang, good color.
If there were 10 teapots I'd give it a "10" !
December 01, 2013
This is probably the most mellow, smooth tasting tea I've had.
Best Apricot Tea
October 21, 2013
Beach City, TX
I had Apricot Tea mixed with traditional tea (Luzianne) and it was wonderful! Adding the Apricot gave my regular tea a brisk, clean flavor. It is also very good hot. I just finished a cup just minutes ago. It is refreshing. Can't wait to try a cold glass of Apricot tea.
Love this tea
October 04, 2013
I love this tea. It is smooth and has a wonderful taste. It has become my favorite afternoon tea.
Still Hoping for a Caffeinated Version
July 12, 2013
I don't bother with decafs when it comes to my tea - I want "the whole package" - but am dying to enjoy the taste, health benefits, and that all-important aroma in a caffeinated Apricot Tea. Have requested such an offering in the past, but no luck yet, as Ministers tell me they need to find right tea/mix to meet their standards. Might I suggest experimenting with addition of spices, as well? Ginger would seem a natural, as it pairs so well with the peach. Or how about some variety of pepper, or ginger + pepper. Cardamom? Cinnamon? Nutmeg? Any of these would seem naturally enhancing to that sweet/tart flavor, and a great boost to the aroma. Please give it the old ROT try?
The best tea flavor!
May 07, 2013
I have been drinking this tea for years and it has the most delightful flavor. I use it for a dessert after dinner, with skim milk--it just fulfills my sweet tooth without the calories. Love it!
April 12, 2013
I want to start by mentioning that I LOVE Republic of Tea and have some definite favorites that are always on hand. I have never seen apricot tea before, and the reviews were so great that I was super excited about trying it. Apricots are definitely one of my favorite fruits, but I also have IBS and have to stay away from caffeine, so coupled with the additional digestive benefits, I was really looking forward to this tea. I was surprisingly disappointed with the lack of aroma and serious lack of flavor! For those of you who have enjoyed the ginger peach or the honey ginseng teas (among some of the other flavors!) you know how important aroma is. For flavor, I've tried two bags at a time, brewing it longer, and even sugar to try and coax the flavor out. I'm still on the fence about returning it -- I might just mix it with an herbal peach since it's iced tea time.
My very favorite evening tea!
February 22, 2013
I dearly love this decaf tea! I have lots of your other ones, but I want this one most nights.
February 12, 2013
This is one of my favorite flavored black teas and it's decaf too! Sometimes I just need a hot cup of tea (w/milk, of course) but I don't need the caffeine. This is da one! Love it!
Greatest Decaf Tea ever !!!!!!!!
February 04, 2013
I absolutely love this tea. I have introduced it to many of my friends and I hear only rave reviews.

I have been drinking your wonderful green tea for at least a couple years now and have tried some of your other choices as well. Excellent tea.
I am especially in love with the Decaf Apricot Black Tea. I find it so richly delicious and very soothing tea that I enjoy so much. I gave a few of the bags away to a dear friend and she loved it also, so I need to send her address to you for her to receive your book. She too also loves her tea, as I do.
Thank you for such a wonderful product.

This tea is delicious and I look forward to my daily cup in bed before I go to sleep. I do wish there was a full flavored Apricot fruit/herbal tea, too!
Nice flavor - no decaf aftertaste
January 20, 2013
Some decaf teas have a weird aftertaste. This one is nice and smooth. Love the apricot flavor.
November 19, 2012
I've purchased this tea many times and enjoy it's rich apricot flavor. It's one of my favorites.
One of my favorites!
November 09, 2012
I'm a big fan. Sometimes I'll combine this tea with the Cranberry Blood Orange for a delightful combination. Alone or mixed it's a very satisfying sip and without the caffeine I can feel comfortable having tea before bed or sharing it with my children.
October 27, 2012
Excellent tea -- lovely flavour! It’s one I will be buying many more of.
September 24, 2012
My very favorite Apricot Decaf!
Great Iced Tea

I always use this in my iced tea, I like the delicate but fruity flavor
September 10, 2012
I love apricots and prefer to drink decaf, this is by far one of the very best teas to pass my lips. When my day is coming to an end, this is my Quiet time treat for myself. Excellent.
My sister loves it

I bought this for my sister because she likes apricot tea. She really likes this. I perfer the regular.
September 04, 2012
Decent flavor, definitely tastes of apricots. Could be a trifle stronger, but it's not bad. Made good ice tea.
Love this decaf. tea!
August 02, 2012
I like to drink this flavor in the afternoon and evening every day. The flavor is great.

I love the Apricot Decaf Black Tea. it has such a refreshing flavor. It may just replace most of my coffee..

My absolutely favorite tea of all time. I really look forward to the end of my day, when I can relax with a cup of my Decaf Apricot. (with a teaspoon of your vanilla honey).

This is the best cup of tea that I have ever had. It has a beautiful flavor that is not overpowering. Decaf is the best!!
April 28, 2012
Really enjoy this decaf apricot tea. I think what I like best is that it has not other spices in it...just the plain and pleasing taste of apricot.

PARK CITY, UT
had my first cup last nite after a stressful day and was disappointed. no real outstanding flavor and tasted like a tea bag in hot water than had been used a few times.
My fav tea of all time! It suits my craving for tea with a mellow, fruity flavor
April 08, 2012
I love this tea. It has the fruity flavor with the soft tones of sweetness and smooth tea quality. I like that is is decaf and lets me sit quiet with it for long periods of time doing whatever.
I mix my teas and this is one that goes with every other one.
Decaf Apricot Black Tea

I got this tea for my daughter because we both love apricot. She said it wasn't one of her favorites. Not enough apricot taste. She loves the mango though.

Apricot decafe tea

Delicious tea, not too strong just right. Loveing it.
February 29, 2012
"Wow" is what everyone says when I serve this tea. They always want a few tea bags to take home. Needs no sweetening added. Two people even come to meetings at our home because they know they are going to get Decafe Apricot. They have admitted to trying to find a tea like it at the local stores but have not succeeded. I think I am going to make out little cards to hand out so they know where to get this magnificent tea.
Apricot Lover's Delight!
February 08, 2012
This is in my top five favorites from Republic Of Tea. I love apricot and it truly sings in this tea! I add a touch of wildflower honey and it is divine! I prefer it cold but it is equally lovely as a hot tea. The peach flavor seems to really come out if you do sweeten this tea a bit. The fruit flavors are perfect and not fake tasting like other brands of tea. Buy this and you will not be disappointed at all!
February 08, 2012
Smells amazing and one of the rare teas that actually tastes about as good as it smells. Highly refreshing!
I love the way this smells
January 23, 2012
I love the way this tea smells. There's something about it on a cold winter morning on my way to work. It's like summer and joy all rolled into one. The black part of the tea makes it stable and deep, where the apricot just gives it light lifts. The fact that it's decaf doesn't decrease its essence. Yummmm.
January 16, 2012
I love this tea.
January 15, 2012
One of the best apricot teas I have had!
December 24, 2011
This tea is delicious! We drink it iced, and it is really wonderful - one of my favorites.
Great Decaf tea
December 15, 2011
I really like this decaf tea. It has a subtle apricot note and is very good both iced and hot. It is one of my favorite teas and I am so glad that it is still available.
How to choose--Apricot or Peach?
December 08, 2011
A. Marina Fournier
If I'm up at the late or the wee hours, and I'm chilled, I will want tea, but decaf or green.
I like the Apricot AND the Ginger Peach, and have a really hard time choosing between them, but then I like both fruits.
November 20, 2011
Yay, decaf black tea with flavor. My favorite stuff with hot water in a cup.
November 19, 2011
I love this tea in the evening! The flavor is great! Don't stop carrying this one.
