The Bold Scotsman from Tupelo Honey Teas is said to pay homage to The Outlander Series Books and Characters. I have to admit I haven’t read them but I will tell you what I think about this tea.
It’s not the smokiest of smoky teas but there is still a bit of smoke, indeed! I’m assuming that the smokiness of the Lapsand Souchong was knocked down a bit by the addition of the Assam, Kenyan, and Keemun or maybe it was just because of the ratios used by each of the 4 black tea bases. What ever the case this blended black tea base is really fabulous!
Just because the Lapsang Souchong isn’t the prominent flavor here doesn’t mean this tea isn’t bold. It’s just a different kind of bold. In addition to the slightly smoky flavors I can also pick up on crusty and fruity notes, too! This is one of those teas that makes me say “YUM” out loud while sitting in an empty room by myself. The Bold Scotsman from Tupelo Honey Teas is one of those teas that makes you pause and think of the multiple layers of flavor it leaves dancing in your mouth. This one goes on my RECOMMENDED list! Thanks – The Bold Scotsman from Tupelo Honey Teas!
