Commercial Description

...a blend of the very best Assam and African teas, with an inviting bright colour in the cup and a full, rich flavour, which makes it perfect for serving at breakfast time.

Brewing Instructions: (from Taylors of Harrogate)

For the perfect cup we recommend that you use one tea bag. Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 4-5 minutes. Our Scottish Breakfast is at its best when served with milk.

To be honest, I didn't personally care for this tea :/ I mean this tea was a great value considering each box contains a whopping 55 bags compared to twinning's 20, but the flavor just wasn't there for me. The taste was rather bitter, but not in a strong and robust way, but almost like pool water. like chlorine. I can see how some could appreciate this blend of tea, but currently I'm just concerned about what I'm to do with the remaining 54 bags of tea :(

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, in fact I would hazard a guess that it's one of the biggest caffeine hits from a generally available tea out there. This is a very good cold weather tea, the perfect accompliment to a cooked breakfast or after coming in from a blustery, freezing winter's day.

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 the flavors smooth out nicely and really make a nice cup of tea.

I have never had a Scottish breakfast blend with African teas in the mix, and have to say the Assam is definitely in the fore front. There is a bit of brightness and astringency, good balance, and it definitely packs a punch of caffeine.
