I found Brodie’s Famous Edinburgh to have little character on its own. I am using it up by mixing it with another tea, and I won’t be buying it again. But that’s OK! There are plenty of other brands and blends to try and Teadog does a consistently excellent job.

Worth trying!

Brodie’s Edinburgh tea is a great go to for a relaxing brew.Never far from my kettle.Can rely on that consistent unique almost peaty flavor that I’ve come to enjoy over the years.To know it’s actually from Scotland makes this tea all the more special and to never guess on it’s quality.Like to enjoy with butter biscuits and any A.D. Scott Scottish mystery. Excellent service! Tah

Love this tea!

Brodies has become my very favorite tea. For some reason, the loose leaf always tastes best. Not long ago, I had to fast for a hospital test. The first thing I did, when I got home, was to make a cup of Brodies. It tasted so wonderful to me.
