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.”
Sir Sean Connery may be Scotland’s most iconic actor. From playing the original on screen James Bond (a role he played seven times) to Indiana Jones’ father Henry in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade to Robin Hood and more, he’s been labeled “Scotland’s Greatest Living National Treasure” and “The Greatest Living Scot.” Breakfast teas, while perhaps less likely to be seen on Hollywood’s red carpet, are equally famous amongst tea aficionados. Typically named English, Irish, or Scottish Breakfast, they are all known for their strength and durability against a hearty breakfast, with Scottish usually being the hardiest.

Discovering Adagio teas, episode #4 (out of 12).
I can’t believe that this tea wasn’t in Steepster database.
Anyway, the smell is not very strong, but dark, very earthy, with very slight smoky character.
And so is the taste, rich and complex, very deep, slightly sweet, almost not bitter.
I like it more than English breakfast teas, but I probably wouldn’t like to drink it on the everyday basis. And for me it’s more an afternoon tea, not a breakfast one.
