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 please make it a wee bit stronger.
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.
Liquor: This is one of our darkest teas, brewing a very dark brown color. Many Scots would lighten it with milk.
Aroma: Aroma is not the point of this tea, so there are only hints of suggestions of malt.
Caffeine Level: Caffeinated
Body: This is the purpose of this tea, and it delivers a very full bodied tea. It is perhaps the strongest tea we offer.
Flavors: Strong and simple, this tea is meant to be drunk with milk.
Brewing Time: 5 minutes
Brewing Temp: 212° Fº
