Whether needed to wash down a full Scottish Breakfast or to warm your bones after a walk on the misty moors, our Scottish Breakfast tea will do the trick. Richly blended with Assam, Keemun, Yunnan and Sri Lankan full-leaf teas, you'll get a deep cup with malty notes, red fruitiness, hints of smoke and a touch of Yunnan pepperiness. Straight up or with a splash of cream, Scottish Breakfast is also a fine companion for your overdue Robbie Burns indulgence: "O, my Luve is like a red, red rose, That's newly sprung in June. O, my Luve is like the melodie, That's sweetly played in tune." Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      Smooth, jammy, and smokey. The flavors are layered and I get a slightly different notes each cup.

      This is a very smooth, quite hardy tea. Definitely good for that morning eye opener. very smooth and drinkable, lots of wake up power,

      It's stronger in flavor than an Irish Breakfast tea. Although it is not something I would usually go for, it's nice to have it in my tea rotation to break up the monotony a bit. If you like things like English breakfast and Irish Breakfast, but want a stronger punch to it, this is for you!

      I was surprised how much of the pepperiness comes out of the dry leaf. The tea itself is tasty, with a stronger kick, in my opinion, than my usual Irish breakfast. Takes milk and sugar well.

      4 of us had this at our recent brunch, it was a hit with 2, one said it was much too strong a tea for breakfast, and I enjoyed it, but have to admit the smokiness of it best places this tea later in the day.

      Smoky and dark. It's a little more bitter than I prefer, even with sugar, but my dad likes it.

      Great basic tea but more flavorful than English or Irish. Also good with a splash of milk.

      I love tea. And I love this Scottish Breakfast tea from Adagio, and that is why I keep ordering it!
