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.

Still a favorite!

This is still one of my favorite teas! I make sure there is an ample supply in my cabinet. It starts with a beautiful tasting black tea with delightful notes of raspberry. The quince adds interest to this tea. There is a nice floral undertone but not too much as to overpower the fruits. I drink this year round as it is great iced too.

Very tasty tea and I usually hate raspberry. The quince is a real flavor enhancement. Delicious.
