The Republic of Tea, which markets itself as the purveyor of the “Sip by Sip Rather than Gulp by Gulp” lifestyle, is a leading brand of USDA Organic, Fair Trade Certified tea. Favored by high-end restaurants and hotels, Republic of Tea’s iced teas are unsweetened, zero-calorie and contain a subtle hint of fruit, which doesn’t interfere with the natural flavor of the tea. By using dried fruit instead of fruit juice, the tea absorbs the fruit’s flavor without any of the sugar. Their best-selling variety, Ginger Peach Black Iced Tea, is a pleasing combination of lush peach and zesty ginger. We also recommend their Blackberry Sage Black Iced Tea, which has a fragrant aroma and a discreet splash of blackberry. Word of advice: order online, as their bottled iced teas are notoriously hard to find.
