  • 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.

    How to Make Tea

    • First time trying English Tea Store's Scottish Breakfast Loose Leaf Tea?

      Try our Sample Size of 1 ounce.
    • Contents loose leaf tea net weight 4 ounces

    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.

      Very nice breakfast tea

      Posted by Richelle Lightfoot on Sep 8th 2020

      I have always enjoyed this tea for breakfast. It is stronger than an afternoon tea but not so overpowering. It is a great tea with which to start the day.

      A Bright Blend with a Refreshing Flavor

      Posted by Rocco on Aug 7th 2020

      This is my first Scottish Breakfast Tea so I cannot speak to the blend in general. However, I did like this blend. I found it to be bright and coppery, even when brewed for seven minutes. If, like me, you prefer the maltier blends, this is a great tea to add to your rotation for when you want something with a good amount of caffeine but a different flavor to mix it up. Well recommended overall.

      Excellent any time

      Posted by Chinch on May 30th 2020

      This is my second favorite behind Kambaa Estate Tea. This is very good, full bodied. I drink it with milk and honey. I've had this from the English Tea Store for years and it has been consistently excellent.

      I usually drink Irish Breakfast Tea in the morning. They were out of the big bag so I decided to try something different. I really like this tea. It has a nice, full flavor.
