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 tea is very unique, i have heard of it for many years and since The Republic of Tea is my go to source I thought I would give it a go, it is a acquired taste and probably not for everyone...........but I love it, great winter tea on those cold rainy days a classic and wonderful tea.
Try a sample first if you can

I like strong things - strong coffee, strong tea, strong foods.
When I saw this 'smokey' tea, I had to buy it, but I was completely unprepared for how, honestly, smokey, it is!
This is like no tea I've had before, it's like a dry-rub for grilling a roast.
That is NOT to say I don't like it - it has it's time and place and I've come to enjoy it in moderation, but it's certainly not in my top 5. or 10. A review below states they liked it on the 2nd taste, and I'd completely agree.
As I explained to my wife, this is either "full-bodied and smokey" or "ashtray" flavored.
Strongly suggest you try it first before you spend the $$$ for a whole canister!

I have been using this tea - 1 tsp w/1tsp earl grey. love it. The delightful small shop I have been purchasing this item from for at least 8 yrs. has gone out of business & have no idea where to find it.
HELP The last location of "The Front Porch" is out of business & I cannot find this tea.
