Scottish Blend in a Box of 80 Tea Bags

Scottish Blend Tea is no ordinary tea. Scottish Blend Tea was the first tea to be specially blended to match the softness of Scotland's water. Today, Scottish Blend is Scotland's second favorite tea.

Scottish Blend is made with 100% tea leaves. The tea leaves used to make it are Rainforest Alliance Certified, which means the makers of the tea have committed to protect the environment, ensure decent working conditions for farm workers and provide access to education and healthcare for the workers and their families.

How to Make Iced Tea with Scottish Blend
Are you an iced tea drinker? If so, here is how you can use Scottish Blend Tea Bags to make an excellent iced tea. Gather the following ingredients:

4 Scottish Blend Tea Bags
2 cups boiled water
3 teaspoons of lemon juice
2 cups cold water
sweeten to taste
ice cubes
lemon slices and mint

Then, boil 2 cups of water and place in 4 teabags. Steep for 3-4 minutes and then remove tea bags. Pour tea in pitcher and cool. Add sweetener and 3 teaspoons lemon juice. Stir to dissolve. Add 2 cups cold water. Chill. Serve over ice and garnish with lemon slices and fresh mint leaves.

Scottish Blend Tea comes in the famous pyramid-shaped tea bags. Officially, the pyramid tea bags are officially known as Freeflow pyramid tea bags. In 1999, Scottish Blend switched to the pyramid tea bag. Pyramid tea bags act as small teapots and allow the tea leaves to move more freely, producing a better tasting tea. Pyramid tea bags allow 50% more room for the tea leaves to move. More room for the tea leaves results in a better infusion and a superior cup of tea.
Unilever (corporate owners of Scottish Blend) are credited with inventing the pyramid tea bag. In 1996, Unilever first introduced the pyramid tea bag with PG Tips tea. It took over 4 years to invent the pyramid tea bag. The pyramid bags are made of webbed fibers, which means the water can reach the tea leaves quicker.

Brand History:
Scottish Blend Tea

Scottish Blend tea is produced by Unilever UK.

Created in 1990, Scottish Blend is Scotland's 2nd favorite brand of tea. Brooke Bond launched the first specially blended tea for Scotland. Supported by television advertising, its popularity grew steadily. By 1998, Scottish Blend had become Scotland's number 2 brand of tea. Its success was bolstered by the 'Fiona's Café' TV ad campaign which started in 1996 and still runs today.

In 1999, a tea revolution hit Scotland and Scottish Blend launched Pyramid bags - a design that gives the tea leaves more room to infuse so it can deliver a more fulsome flavour. In 2003, new "Freeflow" fabric, which has a unique 'webbed' non-perforated design for the ultimate cup of tea, was introduced.

not my cup of tea

I love Scotland and the Scottish and I have a bit of heritage myself but this tea is not what I had in Scotland. too strong and heavy. But it works for a Texas sweet tea iced.
