I figure by now I have sipped approximately 90% of all The Republic of Tea offerings and I have to say though being one of the very first Republic of Tea teas I tried this tea remains my favorite—as in 3-5 cups a day, every day. Delicate, gently invigorating (lightly caffeinated) and remarkably consistent. I think I have had a so-so barrel maybe three times in the last five years. If you start anywhere with The Republic of Tea and prefer milder teas than greens or blacks, you should really just start here. You will not be disappointed.
