I have now my 20 boxes of my favorite brand and kind of tea. Thank you. As always, it came well and I have enough for some time.
A famous brand of Scottish Breakfast Tea that I have enjoyed for over twenty years, it is particularly well-suited to soft water areas. If you like it black as I do, be sure not to use too much (1 tsp per cup + 1 more for the pot) or let it steep longer than five minutes. Worth the trouble to search out.
Unlike Scottish Blend or Brodies Edinburgh, this Scottish tea has larger pieces, with some gold tips. Also has more bitterness than previous two.
I was looking for a tea that would be good with our softer water. This doesn't quite do it--but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be great elsewhere!
