The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas, is thrilled to announce that a selection of its HICAF™ TEAS, premium, natural energy, high caffeine teas, are now available for purchase at Cost Plus World Market® stores nationwide.

The Republic of Tea has intensified the effect by adding green tea extract, known to have more caffeine than coffee, so tea drinkers can quickly get a healthy jump on the day. Cost Plus World Market carries the HiCAF Toasted Coconut Black Tea, HiCAF Caramel Black Tea and HiCAF Breakfast Black Tea.
