I am fascinated by the idea that everywhere in the UK needs its own breakfast tea. Scottish Breakfast Tea should carry me away to the highlands (at least in my imagination) right? I have the bagged version of this tea.

It brews up into a reddish brown brew with a sweet tea smell and the strong taste of Assam. It has some astringency but it’s not too bad. There is a slightly unusual note, perhaps a barely there floral citrus? Perhaps that is the African tea I’m tasting? It’s really quite pleasant.

It has nice caffeine kick, which I need since I didn’t get enough sleep last night. It is defnitely a tea I could drink a second time.

I’m a suddenly enthusiastic tea aficionado. I had no idea how varied and delicious teas could be. Also I’m a dairy-free vegetarian, so if you see me say “cream” or “milk” it means soy milk or soy cream.
