USDA Certified Organic Ceylon Black Orange Pekoe Tea. Hand-plucked from the highest elevations on the tropical island of Sri Lanka. This pleasant tea has a full yet delicate flavor with a distinctive aroma. Enjoy with warm milk.
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.

The flavor is soft and mellow, and it brews smoothly every morning. I enjoy it with a bit of sugar. One of the best black teas out there.
Lovely, full bodied and delicious

Discovered Ceylon breakfast years ago while in France. Loved its wonderfully delicate yet substantial taste. I use a bit of milk in mine (oh so British...)and can't wait for my first cup every morning. Buy it from Republic of Tea in bulk and find it the best of its kind.
My all time favorite tea!

This classic tea my favorite because it is clean tasting and not bitter, even when brewed a little longer. Equally good whether you prefer milk in your tea (white tea) or not (black tea).
I am disappointed I cannot find it in stores any longer.

I have this most mornings, with milk and sugar. English Breakfast teas (from any manufacturer) are too bitter for me; this is a milder blend. Goes very well with Maria biscuits.
THE Morning Tea

I cannot do mornings without this tea. The only reason I gave it 4 teapots instead of 5 is because 5 is reserved for the organic Ceylon full leaf tea which I use when I am not in a hurry. This tea is great with just a little (or a lot)of turbinado sugar and/or milk if you need a little more to get going.
Lovely all day

This is my all-time favorite black tea. If it were offered in decaf, I'd drink multiple cups every day! It is a lovely, unique breakfast tea- not as aggressive as most breakfast teas, but still full flavored.

I have been drinking this tea for more than 2 years. It is my first favorite tea and my first cup of tea in the morning.
not very flavorful

The orange aroma is there with each opening the container; disappates QUITE quickly upon pouring of the water or even if you microwave to just before boiling, so none of it is left for the tea; a disappointment to both of us.
Definitely seems to be organic in effect, so that is nice.

This is a favorite of mine! A very mellow taste. Good with desert or just by itself.
My son loves it to!!
