Whether needed to wash down a full Scottish breakfast or to warm your bones after a walk on the misty moors, our Scottish Breakfast tea will do the trick. Richly blended with Assam, Keemun, Yunnan, and Sri Lankan full-leaf teas, you'll get a deep cup with malty notes, red fruitiness, hints of smoke and a touch of Yunnan pepperiness. Straight up or with a splash of cream, Scottish Breakfast is also a fine companion for your overdue Robbie Burns indulgence: "O, my Luve is like a red, red rose, That's newly sprung in June. O, my Luve is like the melody, That's sweetly played in tune."

It may be about this time when you start asking yourself, "English, Irish, Scottish breakfast teas... what's the difference?" While all "breakfasts" are blends of black tea (usually Keemun, Ceylon and Assam) they are intended to be a strong, rich cup to accompany even the heartiest of morning meals. However, Scottish Breakfast teas tend to be the heartiest of the bunch, possibly due to Scotland's soft water, which leads some people to believe the teas were blended specifically to combat this issue. Or, perhaps Scotts simply demand a stronger tea. Either way, it is important to note that at no time has there been a standard formula for any of these coveted caffeine-packed day starters.
