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. Give it a wee splash of milk to highlight it's malty cask-oak character.

A delicious tea that is very strong and goes well with just a little bit of milk.
My wife and I learned of the pleasures of drinking Scottish Breakfast tea while, some years ago, visiting Scotland and living in a Landmark Trust property. The tea became our "go to" tea in the mornings; mine black and my wife's with a touch of milk. When we returned, we searched many tea suppliers in an attempt to find a Scottish Breakfast tea to replace the tea we had in Scotland. Luckily, The Whistling Kettle had just what we wanted: A full-bodied, flavorful tea to bring back our memories of Scotland. Nearly every order we make to TWK has to contain Scottish Breakfast, as we drink it regularly. If you are looking for a true Scottish Breakfast tea which is never harsh or bitter, even when brewed "strong", but which will bring back memories of Scotland or inspire you to consider traveling there, you will find it at TWK.
This tea is very earthy and very strong.
This tea has a beautiful flavor. Robust and full bodied it really holds up to milk. I've always been a huge Irish Breakfast fan and now I am thrilled to have Scottish Breakfast to add to my list of favorites. Will be ordering more soon!
This tea is full bodied, flavorful and helps jump start the morning, while still being soothing. I like to alternate it with English Breakfast Tea. It does go quickly since I like it so much!
