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
I was looking for an addition to my breakfast tea rotation. Recently, I was offered Scottish Breakfast tea, which I had not heard of before, at a nice restaurant. I enjoyed it very much and decided to order a small quantity to try at home. Before I had finished that small portion I ordered a pound from the Whistling Kettle. It's now a part of my morning routine on a regular basis.
This is simply the best breakfast tea I have ever had. I received this as part of the black tea sampler over a year ago and have been drinking it since. A strong, not bitter, slightly malty cup of deliciousness. I drink mine with a bit of whole milk - fantastic.
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!
