    Love this tea!!

    Posted by Barb Balkwill on Apr 23rd 2018

    I discovered this tea in a store that featured English, Irish, and Scots products.
    My family and I were going to Bancroft, Ontario, Canada, for a week's vacation and our theme that year was 'All Things Scots.' I found the tea and a lovely teapot and I loved the tea so much I had to find it again and your company had it and I was thrilled that I could get it in the US.
    Thank you for the tea and for being available!

    Brodies Famous Edinburgh Loose Tea

    Posted by Unknown on Dec 19th 2017

    We had purchased this tea in Edinburgh when we visited that city early in the year and enjoyed it a lot but it was running out. Brodies only ship to the UK so we found your site on the internet and ordered 3 packs. Received as promised and we are continuing to enjoy this tea.

    finely ground

    Posted by Unknown on May 31st 2015

    This is a finely chopped tea, tiny pieces. Tastes like Assam tea. Sort of thick flavor, not very bitter. Best with milk. Very similar to Scottish Blend.

    My Favorite tea!

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 8th 2012

    This is by far, the very best loose tea if you like a hearty black tea! I have fond memories of having tea with my maternal grandmother who always served the very best tea in the world! Brodies Edinburgh loose tea is my first choice to match what I remember as a child!

    Favourite afternoon tea.

    Posted by more jam, perha on Jul 10th 2012

    I adore this tea. Yes, it is bold. Yes, it is strong. But that is what makes it work so well as an afternoon pick-me-up or in place of a coffee after a meal. The trick with this, or any tea really, is to make certain that it is brewed properly. For this tea I have found the perfect steeping time to be exactly three minutes any longer than that and it will burn rather quickly which will leave you
