The Harneys, being of Irish blood, did not offer a Scottish tea until now. Our friends at the American Scottish Federation 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. A portion of the sales goes to support the charitable endeavors of the ASF.
What a delightful cup of tea! I love Darjeeling, but I also love milk and honey in my teas, and Darjeeling, I believe tastes better alone...now this Scottish Afternoon is quite delightful...fragrant like Darjeeling, yet strong enough to add milk and honey, and voila...a wonderful blend only Harney & Sons could have done with such perfection!! The addition of Darjeeling to the Assam lightens what otherwise would have been a very strong cup! Simply perfection. (Posted on 1/31/14)
This is a wonderfully sturdy tea - perfect with a little sugar and milk. Tastes like "real" tea. It gets me going after enjoying a short break in the afternoon sipping a cup of Scottish Afternoon. (Posted on 5/3/13)
I've never really enjoyed green teas, but I received a sample sachet in an order and gave it a try. Intoxicating aroma and a subtle roasted grain-buttery flavor that is quite addicting. Ordering more ASAP. (Posted on 3/26/13)
I'm surprised not to see more reviews for this tea, which hits the spot in the chilly Midwest. Lighter than a Scottish breakfast, this is a satisfying tea for cold afternoons or any time that you want a tea that feels fortifying. Highly recommended, especially for British and Scottish palates, and anyone who finds American teas a bit weak. (Posted on 3/25/13)
