Our Review
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.

Scottish Afternoon

Scottish Afternoon is slightly more aromatic and mellow than Scottish Morn, yet it is still a strong tea. A portion of the sales goes to support the charitable endeavors of the American-Scottish Foundation®.

Strong Tea Review by Eric E. Durnan
Average Review:
This is a tea with a lot of heft, like a Scottish man in a kilt tossing logs in the air. It doesn’t have floral notes. It doesn’t have much flavor to be honest other than dark tea flavor.
We steeped this in a mesh tea ball for 5 minutes. We use a strainer when we pour cups of tea from our pot and with this tea, you have to be careful not to take that final sip! Because it is more “powdered” than what we’re used to in a loose leaf, it leaves tea like mud in the bottom of the cup. This tea would be much better in a bag or sachet. Most likely bag as the particles are really fine.
The color is dark and I can see why they say this tea would take milk or cream well. All in all, a really fine tea, one I wouldn’t be afraid to serve to my guests, especially those who prefer a little cream in their tea.

Quite Delilghtful! Review by Francesca
Average Review:
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)

Wonderful! Review by Rebecca
Average Review:
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)

Made me a green tea convert! Review by JenniferH
Average Review:
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)

Delightful, full-bodied tea Review by JenniferH
Average Review:
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)
