Edinburgh Whisky with 4.4 Ounces of Loose Tea in Caddy
Whisky, but without the alcohol.   Tea starts with large leaf black tea from China. Then, the tea is marinated with whisky, but without alcohol. The tea has a smooth flavor and pure taste. It smells of a fine Scottish malt whisky. The whisky flavor does not have any peatiness, but a hint of smokiness.  Tea is best consumed black.

Ingredients:
Tea, whisky flavoring.

Brand History:
Edinburgh Tea & Coffee
Edinburgh, Scotland

This is directly from the company:

At Edinburgh Tea & Coffee Company, our mission is straightforward. And that is to achieve quality, integrity and excellent customer service, without exception. Our core purpose is to support our clients in delivering quality, specialist beverages to the consumer. Our vision is to be Scotland’s number one, specialty hot beverages supplier. We know we’ll achieve this. We’ve seen it in the tea leaves.

The company goes back to 1812. Ships moved cargo from the New World directly into Edinburgh's port. Only the best tea arrived from across the world. The company started as an Edinburgh grocery selling spices and delicacies. The first store was started in Canongate, then the city center. Later, facilities at Princes Street and George Street, and a warehouse in Drummond Street were added.

In the beginning, the business focused on tea. The firm was the first merchant in Britain to import tea outside of London. The clipper Isabella arrived in Edinburgh's port in 1835. Known for quality, the company was selected in 1837 by Queen Victoria to provide tea and coffee to royals houses in Scotland.

Edinburgh Tea and Coffee continued to grow and expand. In 1921, the company moved wholesale and export to a larger operation in the city of Leith. The bigger facility allowed exports to grow quickly, especially after World War II.

The company expanded from just Eastern Europe before World War II to the rest of the globe after 1945. The retail stores remained successful until the 1960s. In November 1986, the company became part of Premier Brands. In 1991, a management buyout allowed the firm to be reborn as Edinburgh Tea & Coffee Limited.

Today, the company focuses on blending tea and roasting coffee. The company operates from Portobello, Scotland, Edinburgh seaside town.

    Whisky tea

    Posted by gwen on Jul 9th 2018

    When you open the package you can smell ther whisky! Think hot toddys. After steeping I found the tea to taste fruity, very pleasant but nare a drop of whiskey flavor top be had. My daughter and I enjoyed the before and after smells whisky and fruit., The brewed fruit flavor was light and very pleasant. Think something for an afternoon break or full fledged tea time. You can use milk or cream with the tea if you like but it's fine without it. We tried it both ways and felt it was 50/50 which way we'd want to fix it, depending on how we felt at the time. I sweeten my tea (yes even the sweet one) so that would be up to your personal taste.

    A very heady tea, not for the faint of heart, perfect for a Braveheart.
