  • Details

    The Scottish Breakfast Tea blend from English Tea Store has a malty full-bodied character with bright flavoury notes and hints of cask oakiness. A bracing Highlander's cup of tea.

    This tea is like a proper Highlander- robust, malty (not unlike a good Scotch) and full of life and vigor. Highlanders liked their tea very strong and insisted on hints of cask oak to remind them of their clan's own special elixir, single malt Scotch. This blend consists of 2nd Flush Assam tea (thick, robust with delicious hints of malt); January production South Indian tea (high mountain grown that has wonderful flavour notes which accentuate the robust Assam); Keemun Panda #1 which has a delicious winy character further enhancing the stout malty character of the blend and finally a Chingwo County Orange Pekoe which gives the distinct oaky character. This tea is especially delicious with milk, which further lends a malty character to the tea and highlights the brightness of the premium tea, which has hints of a red color.

    Scottish Breakfast Tea is gluten free, as well as nuts, wheat, crustacea, eggs, milk/dairy, sulfites, and soy lecithin free. This tea is packed at a factory that has nuts on the premises.

    Caffeine content: Medium - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of black tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 27 to 35 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 - 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: Very High - 7.50 - 9.5% polyphenols by dry weight. The longer you steep your tea the more polyphenols will be extracted. (Test results based on 5 minutes steeping time. Polyphenol percentages may fluctuate with lot, grade of tea, testing method, temperature of water and freshness of tea). More antioxidants are extracted from tea (L. Camellia Sinesis) the longer it is brewed. And the more tea is used, the greater the antioxidant benefit.

    Nutritional Information: Amount per Serving; Serving size 2.5 grams of loose tea. Makes 8 fluid ounces or 240 milliliters.

      This is my go-to breakfast tea: it is smooth and rich. As a contemplative, I love starting each day savoring this most excellent brew. I prefer it over both English and Irish breakfast teas (although I enjoy them, too.)

      Our favorite way to begin the day. A little more punch than Earl Grey. Hits the spot.

      I like that this tea has distinct leaves (vs. some teas that seem more like tea dust), and the flavor is smooth and clear. I miss a sense of "peat" smell that some scottish breakfast teas have, but overall, a good tea.

      This tea has a special taste that I can't quite place but must keep in inventory as a regular. I often go on binges of this when I want something other than my regular. I am now regularly buying a pound at a time of this whenever I order my regular. You must give this a try! It is a treat!

      Love this loose leaf tea for breakfast. It is strong, with a slight tang, or bite, or something.
