Scottish Breakfast from Murchie's Tea & Coffee Ltd

Style: Scottish Breakfast – Region: Blend

90 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 1st, 2017

One of my favorite teas. Great in the morning. It has peaty, slightly smokey overtones, reminiscent of a good Scotch. Moderately priced if you're looking for something special and a little bit different from other breakfast teas. I drink it with a little milk but it's good just plain black as well.

This tea was extraordinary and was one of the best blended teas I've ever tried. I do tend to really like Scottish Breakfast as a style of tea, and this was an unparalleled example of such.

The dry leaf has a pleasing aroma with a light hint of smoke, just what I'd expect: noticeable, but a bit less than in a Russi...

This was an absolutely delightful tea that was definitely my favorite blend from Upton and one of my favorites among all black tea blends. The perfect balance of strength and smoothness.

Dry leaf is finely broken but has a very pleasant aroma, and quite complex. There are notes of malt and fruit, especially the fr...

There's nothing subtle about this. Taylor's Scottish Breakfast is a stonkingly big, powerful brew which packs a wallop. An Assam and African blend, the malty Assam is right at the forefront and the African side of things is probably Kenyan, so the whole blend is a very malty affair. It also has a sizeable caffeine hit,...

Pretty good breakfast blend, although it wasn't as good as I was hoping it would be.

Scottish Breakfast Leaf Tea from Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company

Style: Scottish Breakfast – Region: Blend

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Oct. 26th, 2011

Dry leaf is obvious CTC, finely broken. Upon brewing, however, I am more impressed with this tea. Brews an opaque light brown color, light in color for a black tea of this strength and body.

I recommend a 1 minute infusion, as this tea infuses very quickly.

Very full-bodied tea, rich and heavy. Aroma is comple...

Although I don't typically drink my tea with milk or sweetener, Scottish Breakfast Teas are blended with this in mind so I tried mine both plain and with the milk and sweetener. When drinking plain, the tea is so robust, dark and malty that the flavors were completely overpowering, but with a touch of milk and agave th...
