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 - long time drinker
April 27, 2013
I find this tea very robust and flavorful - perfect for breakfast. I've tried other breakfast teas and haven't found one that measures up. I like it with some sort of sweetener - sugar or splenda ( I know you probably don't approve) and silk soy milk creamer, which I don't really use for anything else - just seems to enhance the flavor. I've been drinking this for breakfast for 10 years or so and order it in the 1 lb bag. Believe it or not, my second favorite breakfast tea is Starbuck's Awake which will do in a pinch.
Nice for a change

A nice cup with a pleasant smokiness - like a very mild, accessible version of Lapsang Souchong. I like it for a change of pace, though it will never be my daily breakfast tea.
The Burgundy of Black Tea
December 06, 2012
This tea is extremely smooth and very different from all other varieties of black tea. With the first sip, it brings a smile to my face and with the long and smooth finish, the unique, luscious flavor lingers like the setting sun...beautiful in all ways. Enjoy, enjoy and enjoy over and over again. Simply the best!
Great Tea for breakfast

Wonderful bold but smooth tea for breakfast. It's been my breakfast beverage of choice for 6 or 7 years now. So glad that I can get it in bulk. Love it - thanks!
The perfect black tea
May 21, 2012
I have tasted black teas from around the world and have always preferred the smoothness of Chinese Keemun, particularly when contrasted with the astringency typical of most Indian teas. This tea, blended with a a bit of Oolong really is perfect any time. I prefer mine steeped for just 2.5 - 3 minutes.
