I’ve been away in Scotland this week, hence the lack of tasting notes! I didn’t take a lot of tea with me, purely because it wouldn’t have been especially practical and I was limited in terms of luggage capacity (read: one small holdall for five nights away). I did buy some tea to bring home while I was there, though, and I took every opportunity to sit down in a cafe and buy a cup, naturally.
The Waterstones Cafe in Edinburgh has the best view of the castle in the whole city, as far as I’m concerned, so I went in there often. They serve the Suki Breakfast blend by default unless you specifically request something else, and I’m writing this primarily because I was a lot more impressed with it than I expected to be.
At first I thought it was going to be a bit thin, based on the very light liquor colour. It’s not, though. It brews up to a beautifully vibrant orange-red, and it takes milk really well but is equally palatable without. I thought it made a really refreshing cup; lightly citrussy, a touch brisk, with just a hint of malt lurking in the background. Unexpectedly, a really good cup!
