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.

Even if You Don't Love Tea, You Will This One
September 25, 2014
First time I had this tea but at lunch with a friend, and I fell in love with it. I then went to this site to order. I have shared with family and friends, and they asked me for more. Greatest taste in tea ever as well as their other flavors, but this one is my favorite.
Great tea! Refreshing

Great tea! Almost reminds me more of juice than tea. It's great hot or iced, and not bitter at all.
May 24, 2014
This tea is so good that I buy the largest quantity of bags available. You can actually put it in a cup for hours and it never gets bitter. Such a wonderful tea, I have been buying it for years.
Makes great iced tea!

Great tea flavor with a touch of orange. I like to add a splash of fresh OJ or cranberry juice
April 20, 2014
This has become my most favorite RoT. I drink it all year around. Cranberry and Orange is perfectly fruity harmony...Look forward to enjoying this tea every day. Lured by the aroma, then by the taste to have another cup... Always order 250 bags now.
Best flavor ever!
April 07, 2014
I can't get enough of cranberry orange flavor, so when I found this tea I knew I would have achieved tea nirvana! Love this one especially for breakfast . I haven't used it for iced tea, but I see of previous reviews that I should give it a try.
April 02, 2014
Makes the best iced tea EVER! Completely addictive, can't go back to regular tea.
March 26, 2014
My husband and I loooove this tea! Try it with regular tea bags and several of these Cranberry Blood Orange tea bags to make iced tea. Everytime I make it, I am asked what kind of tea is this??? Love it!!!
Just sweet enough
March 24, 2014
This is my favorite mid-day tea, when I still want a pick-me-up but have finished with coffee. It is just sweet enough to drink without extra sweetener, and is a delightful finish to lunch. This purchase was a refill, and I'm sure I'll buy again.
The very best
March 24, 2014
It's not hard to understand why this is an award-winner. This is my all time favorite and a terrific way to start your morning
Terrific Base for Tea Sangrias or Mock Smoking Bishops
March 15, 2014
Highland Park, NJ
My go-to winter tea of choice, like a Russian Tea mix without the sugar and petrochemicals. In addition to enjoying this on miserable rainy days, we've used this as a base for tea sangrias and as a faux smoking bishop (brew it up, serve it in a crockpot with a clove studded orange floating in it, with or without mulling spices or port).
March 06, 2014
Can really taste the cranberries and the orange. The second best. The best ever is Comfort and Joy.
Please Make a Decaf Version

I love the flavor of this tea and it's very satisfying. I'd love it even more if it were also available in a decaf version so I can drink it at night.
Favorite tea anywhere

San Jose, CA
I grew up a "southern sweet tea" girl and through the years have developed a love for hundreds of flavors and types of tea as I have traveled the world. This is my absolute favorite and the way I start my day, every day. I carry it with me in my work bag and look forward to it's subtle wake me up.
A new favorite!
January 08, 2014
There is something about this tea that is really special. It has a lot of flavor while still being mild (not overly fruity). Very smooth & tasty. I will be ordering more :)

Quickly became my favorite tea. I have shared it with many people and they all love it as well.

Cranberry Blood Orange Tea Takes the Prize
December 02, 2013
I love this tea! It's fruity and fragrant, a treat for the senses. I can't stop drinking it and will be sharing future product purchases with friends in the way of gifts. This tea will not disappoint!!
November 24, 2013
This tea is delicious! If you love the taste of oranges you will love this tea. With the tartness of the cranberries, this would be great all year round. I made mine hot with sweetener. It was perfect for the cold day. This tea would be great on ice too!
This makes me smile
October 24, 2013
I found this tea at a friends house and just had to have it! The family loves it iced during the summer, and enjoy it hot on chilly mornings! Pure bliss in a cup.
Awesome tasting tea
October 05, 2013
Got this tea as a present. It was sitting for a while, because I normally not crazy about fruity teas, prefer black tea only. When I finely used it, I was impressed by the great mild taste. I do not even need sugar for this one.(I have a sweet tooth. Need sugar or else in my tea). Great tea.
My favorite black tea
September 15, 2013
Oklahoma City, OK
This is my favorite black tea of all time, other than plain old black tea. It has SUCH a wonderful wonderful scent of blood oranges, along with a slight tang of cranberry when you drink it. I love to drink it with some honey, and it is SO good even cold... So even when I forget to drink it all when it's hot, I come back to a wonderful cold surprise! I will always be ordering this tea.
Best Tea Ever!

I have ordered many tins of Cranberry Blood Orange Tea and have shared it with friends. My husband drinks it daily and likes it above all teas. I sometimes join him when I'm not having coffee.
Hope it will always be around. The best!!
Love This TEA :)
July 10, 2013
I love this tea...Iced or hot, it has the best flavor ever. I was given this tea for Christmas and I am strictly a black tea person...the stronger the better. So at first i used one of each in my pot, but now i just use Republic of Tea...Cranberry Blood Orange. Give it a try...Bet you will like it :)
This is a great tea

This Cranberry Blood Orange Black Tea is the best tasting flavored tea I have ever had. I received a sample in a catalog and tried it this morning for my wake up drink at work, and it was wonderful. I hope that many will try it and that it stays available for a long time.
April 24, 2013
i first experienced this blend as iced tea at a bakery near my home. Although they no longer use this as their house iced-tea blend, I still enjoy a cup, iced or warm. Since I am not often near that bakery any more, I will have to suggest this blend to the coffee stand I frequent and who offer other blends of Republic teas.
Surprised by the deliciousness!!
April 21, 2013
I got this tea as a sample and made it right away. It was soooo good! I didn't have to put anything in it (which is unusual for me!) and it was perfect! I even had a hard time holding on to my mug. I gave my father a lift and he took a sip and loved it right away too. I was lucky I got it back!! Absolutely delicious!
Very nice and clean as all republic of teas are

Really enjoyed this tea it was in my catalog as a free samples, I would love to see this as a decaf, would for sure order it then, as I prefer decaf

Baton Rouge, LA
Smooth, perfectly balanced flavors of cranberry and blood orange. This is one delicious tea! I love both cranberry and orange, and really like the flavor of the orange without spices. I haven't tried it iced yet, but I plan to this spring. As a hot tea, it's the current family favorite. With 3 tea-sippers in our house, the 50-bag tin doesn't last long, so I bought the bulk 250 bags--a good value!
A favorite black tea
December 21, 2012
A repeat order! love it!
Better Than Expected
December 18, 2012
Tried this tea a few different ways before I found the "right" way for me. I enjoy this w/a tiny bit of sweetner & a couple drops of lemon, totaly "brightens" up the cup!
Usually I put a splash of cream in my black teas, not recommended for this tea but do recommend as iced, wonderful!
I used to love coffee over tea...not any more...
December 11, 2012
I first tried this at my daughter's house. Normally I go for the coffee. This tea is delightful with honey and lemon. Now I go for the tea...but it has to be this particular one!
December 10, 2012
This is the best! No wonder it's an award winner. Flavor is just right - not artificial; not so strong you forget all about the tea.
The Tea Eliminator
December 08, 2012
I am so sad for all other teas. After sampling this tea over a year ago, it's all I ever buy or drink now. I keep trying other great RoT teas, but none of them are even half the tea of this. Possible the best tea in the whole universe.
I buy bulk bags and full leaf all year long. If this tea is every discontinued, I may just shrivel up and die from thirst.

Parker City, IN
This is just one of my favorites. Absolutely love it hot or cold.
MMMMmm sipping away right now
October 02, 2012
I just this minute made a cup & sat down to check my e-mail...there you were!
I love the scent of Oranges and the taste.It is a MOST refreshing sip of tea in My satelite Republic of tea here in Vermont.Come see the colors....(-:

A sample of Cranberry Blood Orange was included in one of your periodic mailings. Curious, I tried it, and now I order it in bulk!

I was drawn in by the blood orange, curious to try it. What I discovered was the best black tea I'd ever tasted. This is our new family favorite. I've tried it cold but the rest of the family prefers hot tea. I'll take either in this flavor. It does not disappoint.
September 11, 2012
My favorite black tea! The flavors are perfect. A wonderful way to begin the day!
Best ROT Tea

Priest River, ID
A perfect blend of black tea. I love cranberries and with the blood orange makes a taste that I want to drink always. One big pitcher last me only a couple of hours its so great.
Love this tea!
August 02, 2012
I drink this flavor or Wild Blueberry tea every morning. It goes well with my breakfast and tastes great.
April 28, 2012
This makes the best iced-tea ever! I buy the 250 count tea-bag and use it all spring and summer.
April 16, 2012
Love it....hit's the thirsty spot when nothing else can.!
March 28, 2012
I love this tea. The flavor is wonderful.
I drink it at breakfast and again any time through out the day.
Makes great iced tea!
March 23, 2012
This is one of my favorite teas to make iced tea with! I love the taste!
Drink it every morning!

Silver Spring, MD
This tea starts my day and prepares me for my morning stretch routine. Wakes me up and keeps me regular, if you take my meaning. Wouldn't miss it. When it became hard to find in stores, I went direct to manufacturer and sure enough, found better pricing options.
Cranberry Blood Orange is Delightful!
March 17, 2012
Oklahoma City, OK
"Delightful" is the perfect word for this tea. I drink it all day long. The only problem I have is that I keep running out! Its a "When its gone, its gone tea". Please warn me when you are getting low so I can stock up! I get cranky without it.
March 16, 2012
I am a big fan of the blackberry sage and do not drink a lot of teas with caffeine in them, but this tops the chart. The flavor is awesome, I just can't say enough good things. Try it!
Tastes as good as it smells!
March 12, 2012
Absolutely LOVE this tea! The first cup I made, it was the fragrance that had me hooked even before the first sip. It not only smells great, it tastes great! This is one flavor of tea I have come to crave, don't want to be without. I will definitely be ordering more.
My favorite of all the ROTs
March 09, 2012
Salt Lake City, UT
This is my favorite of all the Republic of Teas. I can drink this nearly all day long; hot, cold, tepid- it always tastes good. I enjoy it with just a touch of honey for sweetness and sometimes some milk. This tea is timeless and can be enjoyed in any season! It's difficult to find in the stores, so I'm glad I found it here!
February 27, 2012
one of my all time favorites!!!!!!!
January 20, 2012
This is one of my favorite black teas. The cranberry and blood orange flavors are very strong and present but they manage to blend with the black tea and make this a great blend! Even my friends who are not avid tea drinkers enjoy this tea!
December 26, 2011
I love this tea. It has a light fruity flavor, but the flavor is not overpowering.
December 17, 2011
Great mix of flavors that blend into one
Wish This Came in Decaf
December 09, 2011
I love everything about this tea except for the caffeine. It's great as iced tea on a hot summer day, and the cranberries and orange peel make a wonderful hot tea when the snow flies in winter. I'd happily drink it all day every day if there were a decaf version. Please, Republic of Tea...???
Wonderful rich flavor!
December 08, 2011
The Cranberry Blood Orange tea has a wonderful flavor that is not too sweet, but rich in flavor. Wish this wasn't a limited time tea, as I would continue to buy it!
Wonderful anytime tea

I love this fruity tea anytime of day it is an excellent pick me up when ever you are in the mood for a cup.I leave the tea in the cup until I am done with the whole cup.
A Bright and Warm Cuppa Tea
December 03, 2011
The shipment came in fantastic time, thank you.
This tea needs the proper brewing time in order to enjoy the full flavor and aroma. I prefer with some sugar. I usually love iced tea, but this is great hot.
October 30, 2011
This is now my favorite fall morning tea. The flavors and finish are delightful and it has actually replaced my beloved Earl Greyer as my morning cuppa. Definitely one to try if you have not already.

This tea has a wonderful uplifting flavor. It was so good hot I decided to brew some for Iced Tea....Hard to pick which I like more!
