Fine black tea with the juicy flavors of pomegranate and blueberry. Perfect for a midday fruit-filled energy buzz without the added sugar. A Better Buzz - We’ve intensified the caffeine content of this black tea by adding green tea extract and pure caffeine isolated from premium tea leaves. Caffeine and L-Theanine (often credited with reducing stress) are natural components of tea providing a state of calm alertness we call Tea Mind®.
Pom-berry Black HiCAF® Tea was featured on NBC Today Show as part of their "What's Hot in Health" segment.
STEEPING INSTRUCTIONS 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.
Black tea, green tea extract, licorice and natural pomegranate

Like the taste but had a little too much caffeine for me. I was shaking. I have tried the cinnamon and that was ok for me and great tasting!
Great for non-coffee drinkers

This review is based solely on my son's input, as I sent it to him recently. He is a Junior in college and doesn't like coffee. As is typical of college students, he sometimes has late night study sessions. I saw this tea and thought it'd be something he'd like; turns out I was right. He said it was "absolutely delicious" & helped him get his work done. He's a nutrition major and appreciates the health benefits in this tea. I would purchase it again.
The PERFECT cup of tea

I discovered this line of teas and am now OBSESSED. I am a law student and this tea has gotten me through finals. While fruitier teas are not always my preference (I can drink black coffee and strong, unsweetened black tea happily), this one is perfectly balanced and delicious. Not too fruity and not too bitter. It's incredibly drinkable and I have found it gives me a much more pleasant and sustainable energy boost than coffee and feels very gentle on my system. Republic of Tea nailed it on this one.
NEARLY as good as the Carmel

I usually like the fruity blends the R of T makes and this one is just lovely--plus it has that blast of caffeine! For some reason, I like the Carmel version better, but this comes in a close second. I really love this stuff. Never liked coffee, so this is a real treat.

This is a great blend for those that love berry-flavored teas! I love that I can now get my caffeine boost in a healthy way! LOVE the hicafs!!!

When I first saw these new teas in the R of T catalog, I got very excited. Ordered the Caramel and the Pomberry and both are wonderfully satisfying and tasty. And quel buzz! Hoo boy! I am a coffee drinker as well as a tea drinker but I haven't stopped for my usual Blue Bottle latte on my way home from work since I received my parcel of teas last week. Last Saturday night's dinner guests gave rave reviews to these HiCAFs as well. Well done, R of T!

THIS is the tea blend I've been waiting for! Literally for years I've always wondered why no one has come out with a highly caffeinated blend. I've tried some mate teas but I could never take the flavor. If you like fruity teas, you will LOVE this blend! It's very flavorful. And the extra boost is just perfect! I can see this becoming my permanent morning tea - can't wait to buy it in bulk!
