Introducing the favorite beverage of the Scotland-China Association. While it might sound odd that an organization with a mandate to combine kilts and haggis with dragons and dumplings exists, it does! The SCA was founded in Glasgow in an effort to strengthen ties between the two very different countries and offers seminars in Traditional Chinese medicine, language courses and more.

Scotland and China have a long history together. The first recorded encounters between the two occurred in the 17th century, during the days of the old British Empire. At that time the world of the Orient must have seemed wildly foreign to the Scottish officers and merchants who made their way across the Pacific to visit the port cities of Canton and Shanghai. Over the centuries, relations between the two countries continued to develop but it wasn’t until the 1980s, with China’s Open Door policy, that things really began to heat up. Since then, the Royal Botanic Garden of Edinburgh began working collaboratively with Chinese botanists, Napier University, one of Scotland’s finest, established a permanent presence in Beijing and the Royal Society of Edinburgh and Chinese Academy of Sciences developed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate scientific research between the two countries.

In our own efforts to strengthen the ties between Scotland and China,  we’re proud to present the only tea in existence known to link the two vastly different cultures - Scottish Caramel Toffee Pu-erh. Now, for those of you who familiar with the earthy, musty character of traditional pu-erh and are scratching your head over this flavor combo, scratch no more. Amazingly, the sweet, burnt sugary profiles of Caramel and Toffee blend in perfect harmony with the loose leafed pu-erh.

The cup is warming and thick, layered with notes of damp sweet earth, burnt caramel and cream with balanced astringency and medium finish. What exactly is pu-erh? According to the Bureau of Standard Measurement of Yunnan Province, pu-erh teas are: "products fermented from green tea of big tea leaves picked within Yunnan Province.” Pu-erh teas undergo a unique fermentation process that infuses them with their defining musty character. In China, many people believe that pu-erh aids in digestion by breaking down fat in foods.

Unlike Any OtherReview by Maureen

This is my favorite tea - so rich and flavorful. It is especially satisfying after dinner, but I drink it all day long. I cannot get enough of it! (Posted on 1/16/2018)
Good but not my styleReview by Irene
Rating
An invigorating strong, slightly astringent, black tea. Tastes similar to a good cup of coffee with light toffee notes. It smells divine but the taste isn't as strongly caramel toffee as the scent would imply. I enjoyed it but it won't be a staple in my tea chest. (Posted on 1/6/2017)
Yummy sweet teaReview by Chelsea

This one is so good! Smells absolutely amazing and is just the right amount of sweetness and earthiness. I add a dash of agave. (Posted on 12/10/2016)
Replaced My Morning CoffeeReview by Stephanie
Rating
I love this tea! The flavoring made it an easy swap for my morning coffee with creamer. I don't even miss the coffee. Plus, with multiple infusions, I can get more out of each bag. Perfect for morning, afternoon, or evening. Whenever you are wanting a treat. (Posted on 6/21/2016)
Rich and delicious!Review by Dollykat

I was glad that this brewed strong but not bitter, with hints of caramel and almond. I added a little almond milk and it's delicious! (Posted on 5/22/2016)
ILove this TeaReview by ElaineElain

When I received this tea as part of my Tea Club delivery I wasn't sure. However as soon as I opened and smelled the flavors I knew I would love it and I do. It is a staple in my tea cabinet now. (Posted on 5/12/2016)
Its GOODReview by Liam

I tried this and I really liked the chocolate and caramel flavors that come through. I never was a big tea drinker, not until I found out that loose leaf tea has more options than bagged tea... and this taste was a great find for me and my family! (Posted on 5/10/2016)
RichReview by Wendy
I tried this tea because I adore the taste of caramel and it smells delightful but does not taste as good as I was expecting based on the smell. It is still a wonderful blend of caramel, tea goodness but you have to be cautious when brewing because it becomes way too strong as any black tea does. I was expecting more sweet but instead found a rich flavor. It still tastes great! just different from what I expected (Posted on 12/9/2015)
Good Morning!Review by GalInTheGreyHat
This is one of my typical Saturday go-to teas. It wakes me up and keeps me moving throughout the morning. It's earthy, but with the added sweetness of caramel and toffee. I also add a little light cream and vanilla sugar to the tea for the perfect cup! (Posted on 1/17/2015)
No after tasteReview by Kristine
I first ordered this tea after Dr Oz recommended it for weight loss. well, I haven't lost any weight but I am hooked on this tea. I am a coffee drinker but I always start my day with this tea. It has the most wonderful flavor. it isn't overwhelming and it doesn't leave a bitter after taste like some black teas. I absolutely love the caramel but am ready to branch out and add a new flavor.

Can't go wrong with a healthy teaReview by Dustin
I love this teas flavor almost as much as I love it's health benefits! (Posted on 3/28/2014)
Go to morning teaReview by Gal In the Grey Hat
This is my go to tea in the morning instead of coffee. I'm addicted! The flavor is very earthy with a hint of caramel. Which gives this tea just enough sweet to not need to add anything later after brewing. I'm really going to need to order more of this one very soon! (Posted on 3/12/2014)
Absolute favorite teaReview by Cindy
This is my absolute favorite tea after having to give up coffee and trying many teas. I have found it to be a very satisfying replacement for coffee in that is very robust and flavorful. It's hard not to drink it all day long. (Posted on 12/13/2013)
The perfect transition!Review by Drew
I used to rely on 1-2 cups of coffee each afternoon, but now this tea sustains me! With multiple infusions per tea ball, I am able to make this tea last. It keeps me alert through the sleepy afternoons , and it's complex and changing (through multiple infusions) flavors keep things exciting. Highly recommended for those who are hesitant to make the leap from coffee to tea! (Posted on 12/1/2013)
Wake up morning favoriteReview by Deborah
Starbucks fresh brewed in my coffee pot was how i would start each day. Now it is with a fresh pot of Scottish Caramel Toffee that gives that caffeine boost and plenty of robust flavor while being kind to my tummy. The flavor and aroma are divine. I am ordering my second pound today! (Posted on 10/19/2013)
My "Seasonal" Tea!Review by Linda P
Warms me all over and with cream, it's dessert in a cup! Will be making the trek up the Northway from Troy to replenish my supply! Yummy! (Posted on 10/17/2013)
It's like dessertReview by Karen
This tea is wonderful if you have a sweet tooth like I do. Brews beautifully. Tastes like a fabulous dessert. Perfect night time treat. (Posted on 10/13/2013)
smells different after brewing!Review by Dalenna
This tea sounds tantalizing so I bought a sample to try. Smells absolutely divine in the package and I was thrilled! However, after brewed, it had this odd musty mildewy odor. At first I thought it was my cup. Then I bought it was my mesh infuser. Nope. It was the tea. I have read that lower grades of Pu'er tend to have this odor and some people don't mind it. But I do. It smelled too much like I had brewed a cleaning sponge instead. Yuck.

[editors note: We recommend steeping the tea briefly for 10-30 seconds. Dump that infusion and re-steep for 3-4 minutes. This will reduce some of the musty notes. Even the high grade Vintage 1992 tastes way better once this has been done. This is our best selling tea by weight. ] (Posted on 9/10/2013)
My Favorite TeaReview by Jennifer
I first tried this while having lunch at The Whistling Kettle. Bought some sample bags home and was hooked. I now buy the 1/4 pound bag on a regular basis. The blend of nut, carmel, and toffee is the perfect treat at the end of my day. (Posted on 8/26/2013)
