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.

Country of Origin
Visited the whistling kettle about 2-3 years ago and tried the Scottish breakfast tea. Loved it and have been drinking it ever since.
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 is 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!
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!
I haven't found a Scottish tea anywhere else that tastes this good! It is strong, flavorful and absolutely delicious in the morning.
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.
