New HiCAF® Cinnamon Toast Black Tea Leads “Breakfast Served All Day” Trend

The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas, is serving up 2015’s most notable food trends, as outlined by the Specialty Food Association (SFA) during its Winter Fancy Food Show last week. The Republic of Tea’s new HiCAF® Cinnamon Toast Black Tea, which debuted at the show, was recognized by the SFA for underscoring the “Breakfast Served All Day” trend of 2015.

The 2015 food trends were selected by a panel of food writers and journalists at the Winter Fancy Food Show and announced at an industry presentation on the last day of the tradeshow.

“The warm, comforting flavors of breakfast inspired our newest HiCAF® Cinnamon Toast Black Tea, and it’s exciting to see this trend gain momentum,” says Kristina Richens, Minister of Commerce for The Republic of Tea. “We’re eager to serve a memorable taste of breakfast to our Citizens with an innovative tea that can provide a calm alertness to get going in the morning and sip all day long.”

HiCAF® Cinnamon Toast Black Tea, the newest blend in The Republic of Tea's high-caffeine natural energy tea line, envelops the senses in swirls of sweet cinnamon. The flavors evoke the inviting aromas of breakfast and are fondly reminiscent of a children’s breakfast cereal (especially with a splash of milk). Added green tea extract and pure caffeine isolated from premium tea leaves give tea drinkers a jump on the day. With 116 mg of caffeine per six-ounce serving, HiCAF® Cinnamon Toast Black Tea offers a better buzz without the jitters.

The Republic of Tea’s HiCAF® Tea Collection is all-natural and Certified Gluten-Free. Available now for pre-order HiCAF® Cinnamon Toast Black Tea will hit store shelves on February 2, 2015.

The Republic of Tea is available nationwide at natural and specialty food stores, cafes and through the company website ( mail-order catalogue and by calling, 800.298.4TEA (832).
