Back In The Body Tea - The robust, malty character of this tea comes from pure, unblended Assam leaves grown in Northern India. Plentiful golden tips on leaves & hearty body qualify this tea at the top of its class. Certified Assam tea by the Tea Board of India.
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! Great anytime, but especially in the morning. I like my tea with milk & sugar, only need just a touch of sugar with this blend & it holds up very well to milk. Love Love Love!
nice rich tea, wish it came decaf!

This is one of my favorite teas, rich, stands well and blends nicely with other flavors.
I'm sorry it doesn't come with a decaf variant, caffeinated I can't drink it as much as I'd like to!

Brisk full bodied--makes an excellent flavorful iced tea (esp with a cinnamon stick added)

Excellent Black Tea Variety

This Assam has a rich strong smooth flavor--not as flavorful or as strong as some I've had--but very good. Perhaps the bulk Assam would have a stronger flavor. One sign of an excellent black tea that this Assam has is no bitterness or aftertaste even after lengthy brewing time. An all around good black!
Keeps me going

Very high quality tea. So glad to have a good source for Assam tea.
The PERFECT black tea
December 05, 2012
I think this is the most perfect cup of black tea in existence. I love, love, love to drink this both plain and with honey. This is the only plain black tea that I've ever been able to brew strong enough--I like very strong black tea. The only way it could possibly get better would be if a decaf version was offered.

My favorite tea

I had to give up coffee which I loved but found this assam tea to be just what I needed! A rich bold flavor, I have been drinking this in place of coffee for several years. I never start my day without it!
My Absolute Favorite

This has been my "go to" tea for many, many years. Naturally sweet, this is the most smooth and satisfying tea I have ever tasted!
My Go To Tea
January 08, 2012
I've drinking tea for as long as I can remember - I drink coffee out and tea in. The Assam Breakfast tea is my go to tea of choice. It's bold, and flavorful. I really enjoy it with milk and sugar, but I've also enjoyed it without milk.
Bulk Packaging Might Cause Flavor Loss

Recently purchased bulk bags of Assam and Mango Ceylon and found both to be less punchy in flavor and strength. Surprisingly, as hard as it may seem to believe, each tasted like the other despite being of different varities. The individual 50 bag containers, which brought me to Reublic of Tea to begin with, may be the better way to go.
My favorite breakfast tea
December 17, 2011
This tea has a wonderful nutty richness to it without ever getting too bitter or tannic. I could drink it all day everyday- its not just for breakfast anymore!
Great tea great service

For value, Assam tea is wonderful. Ordering on line is very easy and it always comes in a very short amount of time. I love The Republic of Tea.
Best every day tea

Smooth start to finish. Great way to start the day.
I Can't Stay Away
September 12, 2011
I am occasionally wooed into sampling another, more exotic tea but I always come back to this one. Strong, but not bitter, pleasantly smooth. Great with a splash of cream or just plain. This is the best tea I've ever tasted!
Best ever black tea
August 13, 2011
I fell in love with this tea many years ago. I have yet to find one to take it's place. For me, it's the tea of all occasions.
full-bodied, strong, slightly smoky - yummmmm!

The best tasting black tea that RoT sells. Slightly sweet (malty), very very mildly smoky, not acidic at all (esp if you add milk) - lovely!
