Tea For Wisdom - An enchanting blend of black tea, fruit and herbs. Finest quality tea leaves mingle with sweet, fragrant blackberries and cool, soothing white sage. The mild, head-clearing character of the white sage herb contributes to a wise tea mind.
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.
Fine black tea, natural blackberry flavor and sage

January 18, 2015
One of my all time favorites! Blackberry Sage has been a permanent staple in my home for 15 yrs. The flavor is excellent hot or iced. Thank You Republic of Tea!
Every day tea!!
January 14, 2015
Although I enjoy many of the other flavors, this is my everyday tea. Hot or Cold. The perfect blend of sweet and soothing. Love it.
One of my very favorite teas of all time
December 31, 2014
Santa Monica, CA
I've been drinking this tea for almost 20 years and it (along with Ginger Peach) still ranks in my top 2 of all time. I tried it when Starbucks used to sell it, and have been hooked ever since. Hot or iced, one the best cups of tea out there. Don't let the sage scare you - it's very subtle and merely adds a sophisticated flavor. This is a blackberry tea that is unlike any other out there. Not too sweet, not bitter, just lovely.
December 29, 2014
Received this in a sampler pack and am buying a full can - sage complements the blackberry perfectly and reigns in the natural sweetness just enough for a balanced fruity tea.
My favorite tea in the Berry Family
December 16, 2014
A hot cup of this with a little milk and sugar, makes me feel like getting my day started. I also drink this tea with no sugar at times, over Ice with or without sugar at times. This is a great tea, no matter how you drink it.... As long as it is Sip By Sip.
December 12, 2014
I'm new to The Republic of Tea, so I bought the 12 count custom overwrap along w/two other tea bag tins so I can try a variety of different teas. I'm so happy that I did. I really wanted to try this tea but wasn't for sure how the flavors would blend together, so I chose two to add to by box. I'm super inlove w/this tea, too bad I only have one teabag left. This is going to be my go to tea!!! If you have doubts, try it you will not regret it.
Perfection in a cup
October 04, 2014
This tea is by far my favorite tea. I first found this tea in a bookstore cafe years and years ago and have been hooked ever since. It's delicious, calming, and even the smell is wonderful. I usually put some honey in it and it's so relaxing. It even makes a great iced tea. The flavor is delicious. This tea won't disappoint you!
Really great, refreshing tea!
September 20, 2014
San Francisco, CA
Really great, refreshing tea! Not bitter at all. To me, there was only a subtle hint of sage, which actually complemented the blackberry and black tea flavor quite nicely.
Love this iced!!
September 16, 2014
I love this tea. A local sandwich shop uses it as one of their iced teas, and it's one of the main reasons I go there. (their sandwiches and other foods are really good) But this tea is just wonderful. The sage is subtle, and the blackberry is especially nice when it is lightly sweetened.
August 18, 2014
This tea really soothed my sore throat! Thx!
My Grand Canyon tea
July 23, 2014
Lago Vista, TX
I have loved Blackberry Sage since my son gave me my first canister years ago. Soon after I received his gift, I hiked the Grand Canyon for the first time and enjoyed my cups of Blackberry Sage relaxing at Phantom Ranch at the bottom of the canyon. It has strengthened and refreshed me on many other hikes and in several countries. Perhaps I am wiser as a result but I am certainly smart enough to know a wonderful beverage.
July 14, 2014
Best tea ever, nice refreshing taste, the pairing of blackberry and sage complement each other, this is now my favorite tea
July 13, 2014
This is a delicious tea. I have been drinking it for about 5 years now. The tea is flavorful and goes well with any dessert. I drink tea at night with a small piece of chocolate or other sweet dessert and this tea goes well with any dessert I have.
July 10, 2014
colorado springs, CO
I found this tea at a tea shop here, the owner said everyone loved this tea so I gave it a try and just love it.
What a brilliant combination!
July 06, 2014
This has become a favorite for flavoring iced tea. I place 3 of the Blackberry Sage teabags in a gallon of water with 8 regular black teabags and brew it in the sun for a few hours. What a heavenly beverage with lemon and sweetener!
What Ambrosia for the Soul!!!
July 03, 2014
This tea smells and tastes wonderful! I am a fan of blackberries so this tea is a pleasure to drink. I even gave a gift of it to my godmother:-) That's how much I love it and want to share it. I highly recommend it!!
My go-to tea.

I love this tea, not sweet, but a great hint of flavor. I've recommended it to many friends and family who enjoy a delicious glass of iced-tea!!!

Good either as hot tea or iced tea. Hubby loves the hot tea, but I do both!
Favorite of all teas!!

Joan and Tom
Favorite tea for any occasion. Excellent with or without sweetener. We have more than 30 other flavors in addition to basic black, green, red, and white. Nothing beats Blackberry Sage.
Not sure I would have bought this
June 11, 2014
If it weren't for a sample that I got with my mailed catalog, I am not sure that I would have bought this tea, but it is amazing. I love it. It now goes on my Republic of Tea shopping list.
Love this tea!!

Love this tea....drink it almost everyday!! The flavors are specially blended!!

Santa Cruz, CA
Like others, I received a sample in the mail and it's now my #1 favorite. The flavor is delicious hot, can't wait to try it iced. I am ordering the tin and a bag of refills as I know I'll go through it fast!
May 28, 2014
Really enjoy the fresh taste of this tea brewed and iced in the spring and summer. Look forward to coming home from work and enjoying a glass of it.
Perfect refreshing flavors!

Illinois City, IL
This tea helped me quit soda pop! I keep a gallon in the frig all year around. After mowing the grass or gardening, there is nothing like an ice cold glass of blackberry sage! My drink of choice with every meal for at least 10 years!
May 24, 2014
Dripping Springs, TX
As a new tea drinker, I found this to have a nice blend; subtle and not overwhelming; I'm ordering some now
May 20, 2014
received a sample with catalog and all I can say is: MMMMMMMMMMMMM
May 19, 2014
I brewed a cup on Sunday morning and decided to ice it as the morning was warm and it was delicious and refreshing. This was the sample I received in my catalog and now I'm ordering my own tin.
May 18, 2014
Land O Lakes, FL
At of all the teas I have tried, this is by far the best. I wanted to get used to drinking tea without sugar, and this tea did the trick. The blackberries add a sweetness to the tea. I drink it warm in the winter and cold in the summer and it is wonderful both ways.
May 11, 2014
Holly Ridge, NC
My absolute favorite flavored tea. Smells amazing and tastes even better
Best Iced Tea Ever!!
May 10, 2014
This makes the absolutely best iced tea you will ever taste! I am brewing a gallon of it as we speak...perfect and refreshing summer blend. My husband does not like flavored teas of any sort, and this is his favorite summertime drink. The blackberry is not overwhelming, and as strange as
May 03, 2014
The aroma is refreshing the flavor is clean and fruity.
April 26, 2014
This as an absolutely marvelous tea! I got a sample from a local shop and then went back to buy a whole tin. It is my new favorite tea. I like strong tea so the shopkeeper said to steep the teabag for 6 minutes. I steep it 6 1/2 minutes and it's not bitter at all - just wonderful.
Best fruity black tea out there
April 22, 2014
I keep coming back to this one. Unlike many fruit-flavored teas, the berry doesn't overpower the blend; it's balanced quite well with the sage and the black tea. Delicious and aromatic. Personally I like it with a bit of honey and milk.
April 20, 2014
Never considered myself a big blackberry fan. This tea has made me become mindful while exploring it's fruity and calming properties. Enjoy it hot and cold while relaxing year round.
It Starts my Day out Perfectly.
April 16, 2014
I make iced Tea with Blackberry Sage and I drink this every morning with Breakfast, because any hot beverage in the morning upsets my tummy. This Blackberry Sage is the perfect tasting iced Tea ever. It just starts my day off in a refreshing way. I absolutely love the Teas from this Company. I try a new one every time I get a sample. Some are quite interesting. It is a Tea Adventure for me at 70 years old.
Doesn't get any better than Blackberry Sage
April 02, 2014
I love Blackberry Sage tea! It is my absolute favorite black tea. The blend of Blackberry and Sage is very refreshing and smooth. It is also makes a great iced tea served cold.
the best tea ever
March 25, 2014
This tea is wonderful hot or cold. I ordered 250 of this superb tea.
Love love love !!!
March 19, 2014
This refreshing tea is my own little escape from whatever is going on. The blackberry isn't just fragrance, it comes through in the flavour as well. Great on ice too!
Absolutely my favorite1
March 16, 2014
Such a robust and full bodied delicious tea!
Our House Black
March 15, 2014
Highland Park, NJ
Since we've been drinking this for years, I never got around to writing a 'virtual tea diary' entry on Blackberry Sage. Suffice it to say, this is our house black tea. Excellent either hot or iced, bold enough to withstand the builder's tea treatment, pairs wonderfully with chocolate cake or vanilla ice cream. My eldest's favorite.
Top comfort tea
March 11, 2014
When something just is not right with the tummy, this soothes better than anything else I have found.
Love this tea.

This is a great tasting tea, even my daughter who hasn't been a tea drinker loves it.

Nice bold blackberry flavor
January 23, 2014
Fall River, MA
This is a full flavor, tasty tea. A wee bit sweet, a wee bit savory. I drink this tea when I'm feeling under the weather or when I am sitting down to relax with a good book.
no sweetening required
January 12, 2014
Consistent flavor - No need to sweeten.
A Lovely Tasting Tea
December 30, 2013
My sister and I discovered Blackberry & Sage at Panera's. We were so diappointed when they didn't carry it anymore. I ordered the tea for Christmas, and everyday she tells me how good it is. The lovely blackberry and sage go so well together. This smells wonderful when you open the tin. Now I will also be ordering online.
Wonderful robust flavor!
December 27, 2013
Wonderful robust flavor that never lets you down. A great way to start the day with a mug of Blackberry Sage tea.
Blackberry Sage Tea
December 20, 2013
This is the second time I bought this tea. It is one of my and my husband's favorite teas. It has a nice blackberry flavor to it. I like it in the early evening or mid afternoon when I crave something fruity.
The holy grail of tea.
December 08, 2013
Long Island, NY
This is hands-down the best tea I've ever had. Feeling sniffly? This will help. Tired? This helps. Trouble focusing? This helps. Sad? Yep, this helps. I go through periods where I drink a lot of various kinds of tea, but always come back to this one.

Love having my cup of wisdom in the morning... OK two cups. Ordering bulk is the most economical way to enjoy my favorite tea...
Clears the Afternoon Fog!
November 19, 2013
My personal favorite for the 3 PM doldrums! I hate to admit it, but it is better than chocolate for clearing the afternoon fogginess that settles in my head. A soothing cup of Blackberry Sage and I am ready to go!
November 15, 2013
Black Hawk, CO
I brew a quart of green tea and add one or two Blackberry Sage bags to it. It is a special treat. Very addicting.

November 14, 2013
Not very much taste as the last order. Will not reorder.
The best full-bodied fruity-black tea around!
November 12, 2013
It's absolutely delicious! It's been my favorite tea since I discovered it about a year or so ago. It was one of the samples sent in the monthly magazines.
Perfect for studying
October 19, 2013
San Francisco, CA
I love the fruitiness of this tea! It's mellow enough to wind down but caffeinated enough to keep me focused during a night of studying. I usually don't like black teas, but the blackberry notes keep it sweeter so I don't need to use sugar.
October 17, 2013
Mission Viejo, CA
The fragrence and flavor of this tea is marvelously satisfying. It is soothing and I always enjoy this tea hot or iced. I now have tea in the afternoon rather than coffee and find it is stimulating, and I always feel refreshed and revived and ready for the rest of my day.
September 17, 2013
Very impressed with your customer service! When I called to let them know that I only received 31 teabags in my package of 50 refill bags, they immediately took down the info and sent me a new bag of 50! Quick service, very accommodating and I was treated like royalty!
Thanks! I already LOVE this tea, so this was just 'icing on the cake'!
BEST FLAVOR EVER
September 16, 2013
Love the way it smells when the cannister is opened...it's one of my favorite scents and it's my all-time favorite flavor!
September 13, 2013
Blackberry Sage has been my absolute favorite flavored black tea for years. I introduced it to a friend and it quickly became their family's favorite as well! It is the perfect blend of fruit and black with just a hint of clean sage. I LOVE THIS TEA!
September 10, 2013
The natural sweetness of the berry combined with the depth of the sage makes for an absolutely delicious cup of tea! Tastes great with a splash of milk, as well. I highly recommend this tea!
July 20, 2013
This is an absolute favorite! Great iced without any sweetener (as I drink all teas). Why hide the flavor with sugar? Goes great w/ pizza!
Makes a refreshing cup of iced tea
April 24, 2013
A barista at a small coffee stand recommended this when I stopped for an iced tea last spring. It was perfect for an afternoon sip after a long, warm day at work. Not only have I made that stand my regular beverage stop, I have been a loyal drinker of Blackberry Sage, both warm and iced, since.
April 05, 2013
Tried this at a local coffee & bagel shop and loved it. I enjoyed it on ice without any sweeteners....it is great.
One of the best!
April 03, 2013
This is one of the most fantastic teas I have ever tasted. Highly recommended!
March 09, 2013
This tea is my absolute favorite!! And I don't like fruity tasting teas. From the first time I had this stuff I fell in love. The smell is so enticing!! I think I may like the smell more than the taste, although they're both my favorites. Nothing needs to be added, it's so great by itself.
Cons: Not as good cold. Hard to find. I had to go online!!
February 25, 2013
Be careful of brewing time or it gets bitter. Otherwise, love the taste.
Simply The Best
February 10, 2013
Found this by chance, after getting sick of drinking coffee while at hospital. Took me years to track it down, and thank the good Lord that I did. Amazing! Love ROT. They make excellent products. I hope they never stop making it, don't know what I would do. Going to stock up now! :) <3 LOVE MY BBS.
January 28, 2013
I experienced this tea at a hotel in Honolulu. Love it!! So refreshing...and tasty too!

My favorite tea
January 25, 2013
Mission Viejo, CA
This is my favorite tea. I am partial to black teas, but with the sage addition it is my favorite. It is soothing, fragrent and makes great hot or iced tea. Whenever I serve this, everyone has more than one cup. It is delecious and also lends itself to sweeteners nicely.
January 20, 2013
Up North, WI
Got this tea as a gift many years ago and found it to be a great commute tea. Now that I'm driving 50 miles to work again, decided to give it a try, and it's still a GREAT driving tea. Really comes to life if I don't finish and it sits for eight hours. Never bitter, just better!
Delicious! My new favorite
January 14, 2013
I ordered Blackberry Sage because I received a sample in the monthly catalog of teas. I enjoyed it so much that I've been ordering it frequently in recent months. It has a wonderfully fine flavor - different from any other tea I've tasted so far.
A cup of awesomeness!!!!
January 11, 2013
I brew this double strength and pour over ice every morning. My day just doesn't start out right without it!

December 21, 2012
This is one of the few teas that my friend and I both enjoy, as we have very different tastes in tea. Blackberry sage is are favorite.
December 20, 2012
This is my second refill. Blackberry Sage is my favorite black tea.
December 18, 2012
Very smooth with an almost sweet taste. I love it!

Fabulous, totally hooked
December 08, 2012
Redondo Beach, CA
I make 2 quarts iced and drink within a day, two at max. The flavor is smooth on the tongue, not sweet but so interesting that you just keep drinking. Definitely a prize, introduced in Los Vegas when ordering iced tea at 'The Rio' Steak House.
November 30, 2012
Very good, not great; but tasty and unique. I would buy this again
November 07, 2012
Love the black tea & blackberry together. I don't taste that much sage, but I think that is because I make fresh sage tea from my herb garden. I do really enjoy it!
November 02, 2012
St. Paul, Minnesota,
The blackberry and sage flavors really compliment each other! It's very refreshing.
Possibly my favorite
October 25, 2012

This is possibly my favorite black tea of any brand. It's great hot or iced.
love the black combination and berry
October 18, 2012
love the combination of blackberry and black tea. flows together and is quite strong but beautiful.
Perfect for Studying!
September 29, 2012
I found this tea my freshman year of college. Any time I was stressed out or couldn't focus this was my go-to tea. It tastes *great* and it was perfect for mellowing me out and helping me focus better. Definitely my favorite tea! I'd recommend it to anyone!
favorite daily tea

Blackberry Sage is my all time favorite tea. Strong enough to taste good, but not overpowering. Time to make another cup.
August 20, 2012
Palo Alto, CA
I'm usually not into tea with fruits and herbs, but this one just changed my mind! It is extremely delicious, so far my favorite tea at all. I highly recommend it.
This is the best tea I've ever had!
August 14, 2012
Shasta Lake, CA
This tea has been my favorite since the first time I tried it. It's fantastic hot or cold. From the moment you take out the tea bag & it's fruity fragrance hit your nose your senses are exceedingly pleased. I prefer this tea without sweetener or sugar it truly stands on its own. I always enjoy trying Republic of Teas new flavor but I always come back to this tea. I recommend this tea often & I've never had anyone say the didn't completely enjoy it.
August 12, 2012
Great flavor and easier to use for sun tea than the loose tea.
A Daily Favorite!
July 27, 2012
I drink this tea every day - it's very calming and soothing. I can't do without it, so I bring this tea with me wherever I go.
July 26, 2012
I like to give this tea only a short steep time and drink it with a splash of cream and some Splenda (I use Splenda in all my teas)
July 26, 2012
This is my favorite tea! Soooooo delicious. I make pitchers of it for iced tea and drink lots of it! Absolutely love the berry notes.
Drink it every day!!!
July 08, 2012
I had Blackberry Sage the first time about 7 years ago and decided that it is the best tea I have ever had. I drink the Blackberry Sage during the day and the Blackberry Sage Decaf in the evening hours. I have tried your other flavors but still go back to the Blackberry Sage! It is the great!!
June 23, 2012
This was the first tea I had tried from The Republic of Tea and it is by far my favorite black tea (hot or iced)!
June 16, 2012
West Salem, WI
This was a tea which sounded very interesting from other tea readings. It immediately became the favorite tea at our house for the soothing flavor, aromatic presence and over all beautifully blended flavors. Never dreamed of drinking something with "sage" in it but this was amazing, refreshing and savoring all at the same time.
lovely blackberry flavor
June 10, 2012
lovely blackberry flavor. very warming and soothing.
May 26, 2012
I must confess~I combine the blackberry sage w vanilla almond, so I can't comment on blackberry sage as an individual taste, but together....delicious! (further confession~ I had this combo at Olga's Cup & Saucer in Providence a couple of times and decided I needed this treat at home!) Flavors last a long time. I tend to add hot water to my bags several times and the flavor is still there a few of cups in.
May 23, 2012
I beg you, please do not ever discontinue this tea. It is so lovely for breakfast and has become one of my favorite teas. The flavors are perfectly balanced and just delicious!
One of my favorites
May 16, 2012
This tea is one of my all time favorites of yours. Can't count how many years we've been sipping this delicious tea.
Grand Canyon tea
May 11, 2012
My son first gave me this tea as I was preparing for my first Grand Canyon hike. I took several tea bags with me on the trip and thoroughly enjoyed both the adventure and the tea. Blackberry sage goes with me everywhere -- Europe, Canada, Mexico, Cleveland :) -- and I look forward to my breakfast pot every day.
April 28, 2012
This tea is good hot or iced, but I like iced the best. Very refreshing.
Clears the mind!

Pomfret Center, CT
This has been my favorite tea for almost ten years now! Wonderful flavor and just what I needed when studying or working on papers.
Absolutely the best!

Illinois City, IL
I first experienced this iced tea at a small coffee house on a hot day. It was the most rejuvenating but yet "peaceful" tea. I'm a letter carrier and it made my day! I make a big jug of sun tea all summer long and it just makes me smile inside when I sip it. I haven't tried it hot but I will!
April 04, 2012
Coeur d' Alene, ID
This tea is the perfect combination of the simple black tea and the fruity taste of blackberry. I'm not usually big on fruit teas, but the taste is so well blended that it is not at all overwhelming. It's very tasty and soothing. Probably my favorite kind of tea!
Great mix of herb and fruit
April 04, 2012
I can't tell which flavor stands out the most, the blackberry or the sage. They mix together so well and it creates a really calm, refreshing blackberry taste with an almost minty sage aftertaste. It's absolutely excellent.
All time favorite!
March 29, 2012
I received Republic of Tea's Blackberry Sage as a gift years ago. The aroma, taste, and sheer comfort of this blend introduced me to the company and to this day it is still my absolutely favorite tea, despite the fact that I own almost every kind of tea that the Republic makes! You can never go wrong with this outstanding brew!
Comfort in a cup
March 27, 2012
All the stress of the world can be whisked away with a cup of blackberry sage.
March 25, 2012
I love this product. I use it in my keurig and then pour over ice. Very nice
March 23, 2012
My all time favorite tea all year long. I love it hot or iced. I enjoy several different teas that I alternate between but this one I go to most often. The blend is perfect in every way and is my absolute favorite!
Great Iced Tea
March 20, 2012
I love this tea as an iced tea. If you like your tea sweetened, add blackberry syrup.......yummy!
March 18, 2012
Rich blackberry flavor with just a hint of savory sage brings to mind homemade cobbler & ice cream, specially when you sweeten with just a touch of honey and add a splash of milk! As delicious as it was hot, I can't wait to try it iced, with frozen berries as ice cubes.
March 16, 2012
This tea is a perfect balance. I love the flavor and it gets a whole new taste with just a splash of milk. Defiantly one of my favorite teas and has just enough caffeine to get me going.
March 09, 2012
Salt Lake City, UT
I was quite pleasantly surprised by this tea. The blackberry brings in a touch of sweetness and the sage cuts it to tolerable leading to a great tea for anytime of day. I was worried the sage would be overpowering but it is perfect in keeping the sweetness of the berry in check. I would recommend this tea for anyone as it is mild and not necessarily herbal or sweet in nature and a perfect blend of both. Enjoy, I certainly do and this will now be a staple at my house!
This is my favorite tea!
March 09, 2012
My husband bought me this tea in a sampler for Christmas several years back. I was not a big tea drinker then. Well, I enjoyed it so much that now I have 2-3 cups of this tea everyday. I love it! I buy the bulk 250 tea bags, and drink this year round.
March 08, 2012
Nothing else comes close...satisfying every time

This is the best Tea in your line up! Great flavor, I will be buying it by the 250 pack!
Delicious Iced Tea
March 05, 2012
I haven't had it hot, however as an iced tea, it is DELICIOUS!!
March 01, 2012
The Blackberry Sage tea is simply a delight...
Go to tea.
February 12, 2012
This is my "go to tea", if I need a cup to get started in the morning or just a cup of comfort, If I could only have one tea this would be it. Thank goodness I can have more than one, I enjoy several.
February 08, 2012
I've been drinking this tea for over 10 years, and I'm glad they continue to provide it! I especially like it cold, I brew it at regular strength and leave it to chill in the fridge for a much healthier alternative to soda. I don't really care for sage in savory dishes so it really suprised me that I like it so much in this tea. Give it a try, it's incredibly refreshing!
My all time favorite
February 05, 2012
I enjoy fruit teas, but there is something about the addition of sage that cuts the sweetness while still leaving it refreshing and delicious. This is equally good hot or iced.
Comfort in a cup
January 24, 2012
Combining blackberry and sage may seem unlikely, but when I am feeling a little off in the tummy whether due to stress or irregular food or schedules, nothing beats a cup of blackberry sage tea. It heals!
January 18, 2012
You will LOVE This!!!! SO fruity, light and refreshing!!!
Just like eating blackberry pie
January 10, 2012
This tea was an unexpected surprise, and now is in my top five favorites. The aroma and the taste are fabulous. My friends, even the non-tea drinkers are always hooked as soon as they smell the fragrence in the tin. It is even better than a blackberry pie, because it is every bit as good, easy to make, and has 0 calories. Life is good with a cup of Blackberry Sage in hand! I savor it, and even bought a blackberry patterned bone china cup and saucer to complete the enjoyment!
No other tea measures up
January 09, 2012
Tried this tea about 10 years ago and it is the best!! Moved away from the big city, but thankfully it is only an email away.
love the blackberry sage

I love this smooth blackberry tea hot in winter and cold in summer. In fact, I often keep a pitcher of it in the fridge to share with friends in the warm months. I also like to give it as a gift because it is sure to please.

I never run out of this tea at home. We alternate between this and the blueberry Republic Tea as we work in our home office. My teenagers like it too. It is fragrant and has a slight herby sweetness that is refreshing and warming. In a home full of teas, this is one of our go-to teas for daily enjoyment.

I did not consider myself a "black" tea fan... and the sage didn't excite me. However, this tea is delicious and it smells so good! I would recommend everyone tries this tea - and if it's not your cup of tea, I'm sure you'll have a friend who'd love to receive it.

A lot of flavor comes out of these tiny little tea bags. When iced it has subtle yet delightful sweetness to it, and doesn't need any help from sugar. Served hot it serves up an earthier taste which very satisfying. These tea is so good that I do find myself ignoring the Republic of Tea's motto. Not only will I enjoy it sip by sip, but also gulp by gulp, and even chug by chug. I will enjoy here and there, I will enjoy it anywhere.
An Earthy, Distinctive Tea
August 26, 2011
Though lovely anytime of the year, I most enjoy drinking this distinctive tea in the Fall when the weather is turning, and Winter when it is oh-so chilly outside. This tea is true to its name, with a rich blackberry flavor and earthy, yet subtle sage notes. Enjoy snuggled under a cozy blanket on dark, chilly evenings -- a perfect companion.
Great, even for a non-tea drinker

I am not an avid tea drinker, but I do try tea from time to time trying to find one I like. This one I love! The flavor is refreshing and not overwhelming. I have gotten many people to try this tea and they love it. Highly recommend.

It's been my favorite tea for years, hot or cold. I've also made ice cream with it and it's delicious!
Favorite Summer Drink

This is one of 2 of my regular summertime drinks. I make a big pitcher to share with friends who stop by. It's very refreshing. I also like the ginger peach. Both are a welcome change from plain black tea or green tea. Try the blackberry -- it's delicious!
Great for iced tea

We have been making iced tea with the blackberry sage for many years. It is a favorite with my large family. We purchase it in bulk. Great tea, great taste, great value.

This was the first Republic of Tea blend I ever bought and it continues to be a favorite. Makes for a really comforting cup.
