Republic Darjeeling Black Full Leaf
Choose Your Variety
The Champagne of Teas - This Darjeeling tea blend has the smooth character of second flush leaves with the deep qualities of third flush leaves, resulting in a full, round cup.
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.

What our Citizens are saying about this great gift of the leaf...
I love this tea
This tea is my absolute favorite! I drink this every morning and I offer this to anyone who enjoys tea.
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.
My British husband loves this tea. He's been drinking it for years.
fine darjeeling tea
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!
