Like the fictional Scottish town of Brigadoon, this special Leap Year tea only appears once every few years. Luckily, it's every four years instead of a hundred!
Celebrate Leap Day with this Scottish Breakfast Blend of Assam and Keemun teas. We've added a touch of Silver Needle and blue cornflowers to evoke the blue and white of the Scottish flag that Brigadoon would fly.
Leap Day is needed to correct the fact that the Gregorian calendar year is about 6 hours shorter than a solar calendar year. The extra day is an opportunity to do something out of the ordinary, something that doesn't come along too often.
Black Tea | High caffeine | Steep at 212° for 3-5 minutes.

Brigadoon is the story of a Scottish village lost to the hills of time. Appearing for only day at a time each century, its peaceful existence is interrupted by the arrival of two American tourists, Tommy and Jeff, who stumble upon it after getting lost on a hunting trip. When Tommy falls in love with Fiona, one of the locals, he must choose between returning to his life and fiancé in New York or staying in Brigadoon with Fiona forever. Originally a musical in 1947, it was later released as a movie with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse in 1954.

My husband just tried this tea and loved it. I’ve never heard him say that before. Is there a similar tea that he might like that will last till the next batch of Brigadoon is made?
