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.
Fine black tea blended with hibiscus, natural raspberry flavor, quince, sunflowers and peony flowers

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
this was my first experience with raspberry quince tea
June 09, 2014
This one caught me off guard! I was not expecting the floral along with the berry, it almost reminds me of the aroma of roses in the air! After my first glass of iced tea it quickly went to my top 5 list and I will definitely be ordering this one again!
My Longtime Friend
June 02, 2014
This was my first tea from the Republic of Tea. I had it as Iced Tea first and fell in love with crisp fruitiness. Then I tried it hot and love it that way too. Even though I have branched out to many different flavors, this is my favorite.
Always order this
May 14, 2014
Definitely one of my favorites. No matter what I want to try, this one is always on my list. Bold and tasteful.

Our family's second favorite, 'staple' tea. Raspberry Quince is rich and fruity and holds up to being chilled for iced tea. Excellent served as a dessert tea, though you wouldn't want to add dairy.
Nice light flavor
December 26, 2013
This tea has a nice, light raspberry flavor. It is not overpowering, just the right amount.
Like grandmas raspberry quince jelly!

Bright and beautiful, with fantastic aroma and flavor! Has all the warmth of a late summer afternoon in my mind whenever I inhale that fragrance.

Raspberry Quince tea is best beverage I've ever tasted. I sweetened it with Truvia and had it over ice.
June 25, 2013
I first requested this tea as a sample because I enjoy the flavor of raspberry. I enjoyed it so much, I placed an order right away. It has a very nice raspberry flavor, with notes of apple and pear, which I'm guessing is the quince. This is my new favorite, and I will definitely be purchasing this product again.
What a Surprise
April 22, 2013
I usually don't care for flavored teas but I was turned onto a flavored white tea at Teavanna and surprise it's been discontinued--I tasted this as a substitute and was instantly hooked went home fromt the bakery and ordered a tin immediatley!!!
Overwelmed black tea
April 03, 2013
Very disappointed with this tea. The fruit flavors overwelm the black tea. It tastes more like a herbal tea than a black tea.
I AM HOOKED
February 07, 2013
I bought this tea on Cape Cod in Aug. with a Van. Almond tea. I wasn't sure I liked the Raspberry Quince the first time I sipped it...but the next time, better...by the third time, I was hooked. In fact, this has overridden the Van. Almond. I wish I could buy it here in Germany. This is a very pleasant tasting tea.
UGH Don't like at all
February 02, 2013
Thought I would try something new but don't like this one at all. My favortie is still the Ginger Peach.
December 17, 2012
I love this tea and have reordered it several times. It's a full flavored tea with wonderful aroma. I keep a can at home and one at work. Great for an afternoon break. My favorite black tea!
Very refreshing flavor.Extra fast delivery.
December 16, 2012
Was given as a gift to my sister. She loves the flavor. Second year she is getting it for Christmas. Thank you Republic of Tea.
Quince on a Hot Mic!
November 02, 2012
I gave this to my grandmother for Christmas last year, and I was happy to taste that quince is in the driver's seat. The fruit is full-tasting, and the quince is so quincey! The experience is all over with this tea. It's so aromatic. Raspberry Quince over Glade behind the couch all day, y'all!

I've been ordering from Republic of Tea for years and have never been disappointed. Love Raspberry Quince, Blackberry Sage Decaf, and British Breakfast Decaf and Regular.
July 08, 2012
This tea has a very bold flavor that is good for waking you up; "bright" would be a good word for it. I didn't really like it that much at first taste, but I like it more and more each time I have a cup. It also makes a really good iced tea with sugar. If you want an invigorating and flavorful cup of tea, then this is for you.
Great for sun tea
June 04, 2012
For a quart of sun tea let sit out with 2 bags in it, if you want to add a bag of black tea with it that is good also.
For a gallon of sun tea, 3 to 4 bags, depending on how strong you like it; and as above, if you want to add a bag of black tea to it that is a good change of pace.
Just What I Wanted

Love the bottled raspberry quince and bought tea bags for ease of transporting. One of my favorite flavors. Find that I just want to sit and sip ...a lot.
May 08, 2012
I have enjoyed Raspberry Quince hot and plan on trying it out as iced. Requires hotter weather than we have had.
March 08, 2012
The Raspberry Quince is good, but I still prefer the Blackberry Sage and Ginger Peach. Love these teas
March 03, 2012
I first tried this tea when I lived in Missouri. It is the best tea I have ever had. When I moved back to Florida it was hard to find a place that carried this brand of tea. I went on line and found it and ordered it. I wish I could find a place near by to purchase some whenever I run out. Purchasing this on line was easy and was delivered within days.

I was disappointed in this tea. I only taste hibiscus, and it has a soapy aftertaste. I tasted no raspberry at all. Avoid this tea unless you enjoy floral flavors.
December 08, 2011
I have to admit I was unsure how I would feel about this tea when I initially ordered it. I was not all that familiar with the flavor of quince and I had been disappointed by raspberry teas in the past. When I first opened the tin my nervousness increased, there is an initial bold scent of raspberry; however, upon brewing the flavor is well balanced by the quince. I have thoroughly enjoyed this tea and will likely be ordering again when I run out.
More herbal than black
December 05, 2011
I have to say I was disappointed with this one. It tastes more like a herbal tea, than a black tea with added flavors. Not a favorite of mine.
June 19, 2011
I thought this tea was the most refreshing tea i have ever tasted. it was full of such flavor and natural sweetness!
