Details: The Harneys, being of Irish heritage, did not offer a Scottish tea until now. Our friends at the American-Scottish Foundation asked us to do two teas. Our first attempt was a strong tea. They said it was nice, but to please make it a wee bit stronger. This Scottish Afternoon is lighten, slightly, by the addition of Darjeeling.
Dry Leaves: A mixture of dark brown leaves, the smaller pieces of Assam and Ceylon, and Assam CTC (cut, tear, curl) method make for a stronger tea, also there are the green flecks of broken Darjeeling.
Liquor: This tea brews a medium brown, slightly lighter than Scottish Morn.
Aroma: The slight slight aromas that drift upwards are muffled malt and citrus.

Flavors: Strong and simple, this tea is meant to be drunk with milk.
Brewing Time: 5 minutes
