Think taking a moment to sip your favorite tea is a pure indulgence? Think again! By sipping a new brew from a premium purveyor, you’ll be making a positive difference in the world, sip by sip.

The Republic of Tea enriches people’s lives through its premium teas, education and innovation, as it emphasizes a “Sip by Sip Rather Than Gulp by Gulp” lifestyle. Founded in 1992, The Republic of Tea sparked a specialty tea revolution. Today the brand offers an unequaled selection of the best teas, herbal blends, books and nature-inspired teaware, available exclusively at specialty retailers throughout the U.S.

A socially responsible business, The Republic of Tea is dedicated to sharing its prosperity by developing teas to support organizations that make a difference such Action Against Hunger with their Sip for Clean Water initiative, donating $1 from the sale of every tin of their Watermelon Hibiscus Superflower Tea up to $40,000 by June 2014, helping Action Against Hunger create sustainable water and food solutions around the world. 

The tea blends the flavor of sweet-tart premium Nigerian hibiscus blossoms with the cool taste of ripe watermelon. Try it hot as you shiver under your office air conditioning, or iced while you relax on your back patio this summer. Each beautiful tin comes with 36 tea bags.

The Watermelon Hibiscus Superflower® Tea will debut at The Specialty Food Association’s Summer Fancy Food show and will then be available for purchase nationwide at natural and specialty food stores, through the company website (, mail-order catalogue and by calling 800.298.4TEA (832).
