Keep Warm and Carry On – Cozy up and sip this warm blend of fine black tea and autumnal spices –cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and cloves.
I’ve upped my ‘tea’ game this year. While I have my morning cup of joe, I will then switch to a green tea without caffeine. Now as a super busy mom of two little girls in school with multiple activities, my own work obligations, and my attempts to keep a method to the madness that is our house, I switched to a tea with more of an ‘oomph’ AKA caffeine. While black tea doesn’t have the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee, I find that a mid-morning half-caff tea does the trick. Now that the weather is FINALLY getting cooler in Austin and we are into the glorious fall months, I have one thing on my mind when it comes to my tea: Pumpkin Spice. YUM! Luckily, I am a huge fan of Republic of Tea’s products and love their super-cute tins with individual tea bags. While I don’t mind loose leaf tea and use it when necessary, I like the convenience of the bags. Their Pumpkin Spice Black Tea has currently become my go-to tea this season.
Guess what? I’m not alone in my love of Republic of Tea. In fact, Pumpkin Spice Black Tea was recently featured in The Gourmet Retailer’s fall gift guide. Wow! This energizing black tea wards off the chill of the crisp, fall season, and a splash of warm milk transforms this tea to pumpkin pie in a cup. In under five minutes, I get a delicious blend of spices and pumpkin that makes me wish fall was an all-year season. Brew up a cup today and ENJOY the rush!
Caffeine: Black Tea has less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.

About the Republic of Tea: Founded in 1992, The Republic of Tea sparked a Tea Revolution. They began by canvassing the most prized tea gardens of the world for their worthiest leaves. Their mission was—and is—to see these teas steaming in the cups of men, women and children everywhere, and to emphasize a Sip by Sip Rather Than Gulp by Gulp lifestyle. In keeping with their identity as an independent republic, they designate our employees Ministers, their sales representatives as Ambassadors, their customers as Citizens and retail outlets as Embassies.
