This tea has been carefully blended for the very soft waters of Scotland and is a combination of organic broken leaves from Assam, Africa and northern Indian highlands. These single estate organic varieties are individually excellent and as a blend have come together to make a truly exceptional strong-tasting tea, well balanced, freshly flowery and subtly scented whist still being malty with a most definite full body. By the looks of this tea there is a small amount of green unfermented leaves in there as well.
I would suggest that this is a tea for drinkers who like their milk as I tried drinking it without and it was too much for me. I brewed it at 100oC for two and a half minutes, feel free to adjust for personal preference. Helen found this tea to be ‘quite chewy’ and a bit on the strong side for her but I am sure will suit drinkers who like to stand a spoon upright in their tea.
