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.

Smooth and delicious. Was a gift to a friend who doesn't drink tea and she gave it to me --it came straight from India! Thank God for friends with good taste!

Never had this kind of tea before . It is very smooth and delicate not strong like most black teas. I'm hooked now. Try some.

It has a smooth fruity, clear taste. Its great hot or cold. It doesnt have a bold strong taste like an English Breakfast. So if that is the kind of taste your going for, this isnt the tea. It has a fine delicate taste that I truly enjoy!

Maybe it's me, but it seems this tea has returned to the superior quality offered in the past. For awhile it didn't have that robust flavor and deep, clear color I sought, but this is superb. Please don't change what you're doing.
Try it iced!

Here in Texas it is often too hot to drink anything hot, even tea. This tea is absolutely marvelous iced. I make a whole pot the night before and put it in the fridge to cool. It is especially wonderful steeped with a sliced key lime. Go darjeeling!
