So good

San Francisco, CA

I love this tea, I drink it all day. For a little sweetness try a touch of maple syrup. I had a bottled assam somewhere with that in it and I do it at home all the time now.

Delicious tea

Gallup, NM

My husband and I had this tea for the first time in New Zealand about 20 years ago and LOVED it. Had never been able to find it until a few years ago discovered Tea Republic. So HAPPY! This is a wonderful tea throughout the day. We love it hot and it takes milk wonderfully (soy, coconut, cow). Terrific go-to tea without the bitterness that happens with others.

Assam - Robust Black Tea

Lakeland, FL

Not only enjoyable for breakfast, it is also good for an afternoon pick-me-up. Add a little lemon juice and "WOW!"

awesome tea!

Colchester, VT

This has been my "go-to" tea for a few years, but I can't get it locally now. So, I went direct to the Republic. Wow! So much fresher and more flavorful! Really, REALLY good black tea, with just the right caffeine kick for me. It also brews nicely. What I mean is, if you measure with the same spoon, and fill the pot to the same level, you get the same strength tea, even if you get a phone call and let it brew ten minutes longer.

Our Daily Standard

Nashville,, TN

WE may mix other teas with this for a variety of flavored drinks, but this is always our starting place. The absolute bedrock of our tea drinking tradition!

Great tea flavor

Tempe, AZ

This tea is our favorite black tea. It is wonderful alone or works well blended with other teas to add a little extra flavor. My husband and I both reach for this one time and again.

Brewed strong in the morning...

Lancaster, OH

...and I drink it through the day. I love it with a touch of honey and a splash of vanilla soymilk. I fill up an extra large travel mug to get me out the door, then I add ice to the half that's remaining by 10:30 and drink through lunch. I've loved this tea for more than a dozen years.

Best in the Morning

Meadville, PA

As an avid tea drinker (and coffee convert), boiling a pot of water and brewing tea is the very first thing I do every morning -- every! I drink a variety of teas from a variety of suppliers -- none of generic super market origin. If I had to pick a single variety for that first-in-the-morning cup, foregoing every other, I'd choose Republic of Tea's Assam Breakfast Full-Leaf Black Tea in a heartbeat, and never look back. I simply think it the most robust, best tasting, most satisfying morning tea out there.

Smooth and Full Flavored


I have tried several breakfast teas but this one is the smoothest. Great wake up without bitterness!

Assam has a new convert!

Marysville, CA

I opened the tin and let the aroma fill me. Oh, my gosh. The only thing better was my first sip--I have never tasted a better black tea! I am a convert.

Go to black tea every morning with a dash of milk. PERFECT. Worth getting out of bed for!
