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.

    Good tea, not distinctively Scottish Breakfast Review by Magster
    I found this black tea to be tasty, but I was looking for something more distinctively "Scottish Breakfast." This could as easily be called "English Breakfast" or simply Assam. (Posted on 1/5/2019)
    Excellent Flavor Review by OneBigBookworm
    I always have enjoyed a good cup of English breakfast tea. Then several years ago, I decided to try Scottish Breakfast tea. It was an opportunity get in touch with my Scottish Roots, even though I am American, Scottish blood roars my veins. After trying a few different types of Scottish breakfast, I came on the English tea stores version. Wow! What an excellent cup of tea! Weekend mornings wouldn't be complete without a cop a Scottish Breakfast tea from the English Tea Store.( during the week, being pressed for time, I have to settle for bags) I would expecially encourage any men reading the review to give this a try and enjoy the robust flavor and suttle accents that will remind you of that other favorite drink, Scotch) Everyone has a little Scottish in them, at least enough to really enjoy this tea.
