Pure Black Tea
The English and the Irish have their blends - so we couldn't leave out the Scottish! This blend consists of Assam and Nigiliri from India, Keemun from China and Ceylon Orange Pekoe. Like all quality breakfast teas, our Scottish Breakfast is strong and robust. Give it a wee splash of milk to highlight it's malty, cask-oak character.

Country of Origin
I really enjoy the slightly malty taste of Scottish Breakfast tea. It has been my go-to morning tea for the past five years.
This is a great, robust everyday tea. I slightly prefer the German Breakfast, but that's only because I tasted them side by side. If I were to have them individually I doubt I would be able to tell the difference. They are both strong black teas (no milk or sugar) that resist going bitter.
I'm an evening tea drinker, but as a morning coffee guy, I like my tea to have a bit of weight to it. As such I typically drink something like an Irish Breakfast tea. When I saw this Scottish Breakfast I had to give it a try. You can definitely pick out a couple of notable flavors, and you're left with something of a pleasant aftertaste. I take my tea with a hint of milk and sometimes a dollop of honey, but I'd say if you oft times add a sweetener, you might try this without the first time. I found I prefer this particular tea that way.
This has become my go to favorite morning brew. It is very smooth and holds up well with a splash of milk with no sugar. A full creamy rich taste. I have come to prefer this over the Twinings English Loose Leaf that I used to drink daily. Great taste and a great way to start the day!
This was so delicious that I am sad I bought the smallest size available. Will be ordering more soon!!
