About Scottish Breakfast

Black Tea Leaf
Scottish Breakfast
from Upton Tea
Scottish Breakfast is a style of breakfast black tea. Like English Breakfast and Irish Breakfast, this tea is usually a blend of black teas from different regions, and is defined by its character, not by the particular teas used in the blend.

Scottish Breakfast tends to be strong, full-bodied, and bold in flavor, usually stronger than English Breakfast. More so than English and Irish breakfast teas, it often has smokiness and/or a suggestion of wood in the aroma, although the degree of smokiness is highly variable, and sometimes completely absent. Some blends achieve such character by blending Lapsang souchong with other black teas. Other teas commonly used in Scottish Breakfast include Assam, teas from Kenya, and Ceylon.
