Like the fictional Scottish town of Brigadoon, this special Leap Year tea only appears once every few years. Luckily, it's every four years instead of a hundred! Celebrate Leap Day with this Scottish Breakfast Blend of Assam and Keemun teas. We've added a touch of Silver Needle and blue cornflowers to evoke the blue and white of the Scottish flag that Brigadoon would fly. Leap Day is needed to correct the fact that the Gregorian calendar year is about 6 hours shorter than a solar calendar year. The extra day is an opportunity to do something out of the ordinary, something that doesn't come along too often. Steep at 212°F for 3-5 minutes

      I ordered this on a whim 4 years ago and could not be happier! It is almost time for it to come back and I am literally counting the days. I tried to ration it when I first got it, since I only got one bag and knew it wouldn’t be available again for a while. Of course that didn’t last long. This tea is strong and perfect for a cool spring morning. I will definitely be ordering more when it comes back again!
