A blend of dependable black teas from Africa produces a rich, robust, dark cup. Great in the morning to help get the motor started or in the afternoon to keep it running. This cup is nice with a splash of warm milk. This tea was featured in the New York Times' Book Review.

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.

This is a very good tea. I agree that it is not exceptionally strong or robust, but neither is it weak. It is very smooth and with a nice flavor - at least to me!
I hope they will keep this one around permanently.

This is a tasty selection that revs my engine in the morning. It's smooth and delicious and provides an instant wake up call on the coldest of days.

Was really impressed with this tea. Bold and flavorful without being bitter. Great any time.
The new favorite brew at our house!

Lives up to the description. I expected an unrefined brew but this one is hearty and complex. My husband says it's the best tea we've ever bought!
