Malty, full bodied, with hints of cask oakiness. Scottish Breakfast is your next favorite tea, hot or iced.
Now this is a powerful tea! It’s got some real gusto!
The tea is strong and BOLD. Yes, BOLD – not bold – but BOLD! The blend of teas include a malty Assam which would deliver plenty of strength all on its own, but when combined with the richness of Keemun and Nilgiri teas, this becomes one seriously invigorating tea, ready to jump start you and get you on your way.
This full-flavored tea does indeed deliver on its promise of hints of oak. This has a very hefty, rustic kind of flavor to it and that woody tone elevates the rustic feel to this tea. It has some baked/bread-y kind of flavors in the background as well which are enhanced by the malty tones. All this delicious, toothsome flavor while maintaining a very pleasant smoothness.
If your usual breakfast blend sometimes leaves you feeling flat, reach for a cup of this breakfast blend next time. This one won’t fail you!
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
