The primary sociological structure in old Scotland was the 'clan'. The roots of the system are very ancient, stretching back into Scotland's Celtic past. The country had been occupied by many different peoples - Britons, Romans, Angles and Vikings - but two races came to dominate: the Picts in the north and east who divided their territory into 7 petty kingdoms and in the west it was the Scots. Originating as an Irish tribe, the Scots migrated from Ulster in the 6th century. The kingdoms of the Scots and the Picts were eventually united by Kenneth MacAlpin in the mid 800's. These people were organized along tribal lines which eventually became known as clans.

One of the downfalls of the clans was the propensity to feud. Some disputes simmered for centuries such as the feud between the MacDonalds and Stewarts which began at Culloden in 1314, finally being settled in the 1600's. Highlanders guarded their traditions fiercely and were well known for their loyalty robust character. This tea is like a proper Highlander - robust, malty (not unlike a good Scotch) and full of life and vigor. Highlanders liked their tea very strong and insisted on hints of cask oak to remind them of their clan's own special elixir - single malt Scotch.

This blend consists of 2nd Flush Assam tea (thick, robust with delicious hints of malt); January production South Indian tea (high mountain grown that has wonderful flavor notes which accentuate the robust Assam; Keemun Panda #1 which has a delicious winy character further enhancing the stout malty character of the blend; and finally a Chingwo County Orange Pekoe which gives the distinct oaky character. This tea is especially delicious with milk which further lends a malty character to the tea and highlights the brightness of the premium tea which has hints of a red color.

A great addition to any breakfast!Review by Elf
I’ve tried English Breakfast Tea and Irish Breakfast Tea, but I hadn’t yet tried Scottish Breakfast Tea. I decided to add a sample to my most recent order. It’s a very hearty tea, not bitter or harsh, and stood up well to a splash of milk and a little sugar. I like a strong cuppa, so I doubled the recommended amount for one cup (and my cup is little over-sized—about ten ounces). I really enjoyed it, and will be looking forward to ordering it next time. Thank you for introducing me to a new best friend! (Posted on 6/6/2017)
One of my favorite teasReview by Katherine W
I'm fairly traditional when it comes to black teas. I love Irish breakfast tea and English breakfast tea, and occasionally enjoy some earl grey. But this Scottish breakfast tea is definitely one of my top favorites for my morning cups of tea. It is ever so slightly smoky and not at all sweet -- just like Scotch whisky in some ways. It's an excellent accompaniment to a savory breakfast. Highly recommended! (Posted on 3/22/2017)
Great wake up tea!Review by Carol
I haven't found a Scottish tea anywhere else that tastes this good! It is strong, flavorful and absolutely delicious in the morning. (Posted on 12/22/2016)
Love itReview by Hugito
I think this one has a stronger bite than the typical black tea, and I understand that this is how the Scots drink it. Strong and heavy, I love this with my breakfast. (Posted on 5/11/2016)
