I bought this tea after trying it at a coffee shop in West Virginia. The flavor is not overpowering and adds just enough caramel to make it something special. The caffeine boost is not one that makes me feel overcaffeinated or jittery. This is now my go-to tea!

Way too bitter...

I was really looking forward to trying this out. The high caffeine content obviously was the prime selling point. Unfortunately, it has a very bitter and unpleasant aftertaste. I even tried steeping for less than the recommended time, no help. There needs to be a sampler option for the HiCaf teas. I wouldn't purchase this again.

Love the high caffeine and sweet taste - it helps provide a pep in ones step as a substitute for both coffee and cinnamon rolls in either the morning (or anytime). Or tastes great along with a cinnamon roll.

This is the third flavor of Hi-Caf tea I have purchased (Cinnamon Toast and Toasted Coconut were the first two). I liked those two flavors, but this one is my favorite! I found it had a mellower flavor while still providing the benefits of the higher caffeine levels. I really like that all these teas help me stay alert without making me feel jittery or 'buzzed'. Great flavor and good results; I'll be buying this again!

It tasted like burnt caramel to me no matter how long I steeped it. I just boiled water, poured it over the tea bag in my mug, let it steep for 3 minutes, removed the bag, and added a little bit of sugar and almond milk to it.

I drink this EVERY DAY. Coffee gives me stomach aches, and green tea does not have enough caffeine in it. This is not only delicious, but it wakes me up every morning. And the best part is, it doesn't upset my stomach! I LOVE this tea! Highly recommend.

I bought this tea hoping to save money on the coffee I was buying everyday. By itself, it has a very strong taste to it even though I was hoping the caramel would lighten it. Adding vanilla creamer and sugar helps it a lot for me since I do like my teas on the sweeter side. This tea has gotten me through all nighters at school and through the days that I needed that extra pick me up. I would recommend this tea to anyone looking for a nice cup with an extra kick of caffeine.

I bought this tea because it had high reviews and I'm a huge fan of the Cinnamon Toast Hi-Caf tea. While this tea is good, I prefer the Cinnamon Toast flavor. I don't particularly taste a distinct caramel flavor. I do enjoy the Hi-Caf teas as I'm not a coffee drinker and really rely on the caffeine in the morning.

I work offshore, and start every work day with a cup of this tea! Coffee makers are bulky, but there's usually room in our unit for a hot water pot, which means tea is far more convenient than coffee. The shot of caffeine is very welcomed when I've been working 12 hour shifts away from home for 4 weeks straight! Love this tea! Oh, and the caramel flavor is smooth and not overpowering, making it perfect for drinking straight up with no sugar, honey, or milk/cream added.

The cafe at the bookstore where i work carries Republic of Tea so I can always keep stoked up but after last Christmas they no longer carry the Triple Caf!!! I've check with the local groceries that carry it but they can't get the triple caf either. Out of desperation I've come to the website hoping that you hadn't discontinued it as my stock was running out. Now just in time to keep me revved up during the holiday rush I can get my fix. Coffee upsets my tummy so this it great. Am going to sample some others that have caught my eye at the site too.

I had an allergy test come back positive for coffee. I thought it was weird--who is allergic to coffee? But I dutifully agreed to give up my 3 cup a day habit. I ordered a sample of the Hicaf teas and made the switch cold turkey. The caramel black is perfect.

So far this is my least favorite of this series of teas. I thought the taste really clashed between the black tea and the caramel and had almost a sickly-sweet taste to it. Would recommend the coconut one if you want something more plain and the cinnamon toast one if you want sweet that meshes well with the tea taste.

This tea is aptly subtitled "a better buzz". I stopped drinking coffee about a year ago and now will never go back to the short-lived buzz from a cup of coffee. I will drink a cup of HiCaf tea in the afternoon for a pick me up that lasts the rest of the day without the crash of coffee. This tea fills me with an energy that I can feel throughout my whole body. . .I can't say enough how this tea is the greatest pick me up ever! The taste is perfect. . .I never add cream or sugar since it doesn't need it. Without this tea, I'd be lost!

I've been a diet soda drinker for over 25 years- every day first thing in the morning for my caffeine buzz. This addiction has actually stopped due to hicaf teas. I drink one in the am and one in the afternoon and I'm feeling no negative after effects headaches, or withdrawals I expected from the diet soda habit. The caramel black is delicious, my fave, although I've tried all hicaf varieties! It's delicious iced or hot. I feel better and cravings to snack on sweet foods has also decreased. I am so happy to have this new healthy option!

This is a really nice tea. It brews up well and the caffeine really bolsters your energy level without giving you the jitters or a caffeine high. It is not bitter like you might think it would be. It tastes just like any other black tea, but with a more powerful kick that lasts for hours. Very very nice!

This tea has a delicious caramel flavor, slightly sweet but not overly so. It also gives me a nice boost without making me feel jittery, unlike when I drink coffee or energy drinks. I work 12 hour shifts that require close attention to computer readouts. This really helps me avoid "glazing over" at work. Many of my coworkers have tried it after inquiring after the wonderful smell, and all of them have liked it so far.

Just left a 5-star review for the Pomberry HiCAF as well. I just love these new teas. They give me a boost that stays with me for a while, as opposed to the shorter-lived buzz/crash effect I get from coffee. Plus this caramel flavor is rich and tasty. I have about 20 different R of T flavors - whites, greens, oolongs, blacks, herbals. I love them all and am so happy to be able to add these HiCAF blends to my long list of faves. Nice extra "perk" (pun intended) - I'm saving money by not buying a latte on my way home from work every day!
