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.

A nice deep, malty nose with fruity and floral hints. Makes for a mild hot brew, the tea flavors disappearing with a splash of milk or cream. But served iced, it's a winner. I let this steep for a minute or two longer than recommended (and not much longer, as it will turn bitter) for that beautiful deep color. A crisp, clean, refreshing unsweetened iced tea with mild floral notes.

Bright, full, no need for milk or sweetener. I don't really like the bother of loose tea, but for this fantastic balanced cup I'll keep coming back for more.

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!

Very Good Tea

This is a very good tea. I liked it better than I thought I would. It is mild and even a little fruity. Even though I normally don't buy black tea, I think I would order it again.

A Nice Darjeeling

I love Republic's Darjeeling. This particular batch is a little more musky than I like and than previous batches, but still very good.

I love this tea! I have been looking for a black tea with wonderful flavor and beautiful color for so long. It is very slim pickings where I am, so when I began my search online and found this brand of tea, I became intrigued. This Darjeeling tea is so tasty all times of day be it cold or hot, I look forward to the next cup. Due to the rapid delivery, fantastic tea and competitive pricing, I will be order more of this tea and other flavors as well. Thanks for the great cup of tea!!!
Best tasting tea, ever

this is my very favorite tea, ever. I dabble with the flavored teas in the summer, but this tea with a dash of cream on a cold winter day is a wonderful warming start to the day or after supper treat.

I like Darjeeling and have for many years. Yours has nice leaves, not broken up all that much and so I bought a pound of the stuff. As the headline indicates, Yummmmmm. And now since it is about 16 degrees outside with a northeast wind blowing at about 10 with gusts, I'm steeping one to consume shortly.
Smooth and satisfying

Just tried a tasting tin before jumping in- I'll be back for more. Great after-dinner cup, after the table is cleared. Smooth, but tasty.
