There is no question that the people of Scotland have introduced the world to many fine things. For example, the game of golf, the kilt and Scotch whisky. Butterscotch is also reputed to have originated in Scotland but there is a certain amount of controversy about that and we will probably never be able to confirm it. What we can get to the bottom of however is a delicious cup of piping hot butterscotch tea. Try it cold over ice, like candy in a cup!

What type of tea do we use, how do we flavour the tea and why do we use natural flavours?

For our flavoured teas, we only use high-grown tea from the top 3 tea growing regions of Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya, Dimbula and Uva. These three high-grown districts produce flavourful teas that have a classic 'Ceylon' tea character which is noted by a floral bouquet and flavour notes, touches of mild astringency, bright coppery colour and, most importantly - perfect for use as the base tea of our flavoured teas. Dimbula and the western estates of Nuwara Eliya have a major quality peak during Jan/Feb, whereas Uva and the eastern estates of Nuwara Eliya have their peak in July/Aug. This 'dual peak period' allow us to buy the best for our flavoured tea blends several times during the year, ensuring top quality and freshness. Next, we use flavouring oils, not crystals, to give the tea drinker an olfactory holiday before indulging in a liquid tea treat. Finally, we specify natural flavours.

High quality tea tastes good and natural flavours do not mask the natural taste of the high-grown Ceylon tea. (The norm for many making flavoured tea is to use overpowering artificial flavours, which can be used to hide lower quality tea). Natural flavours do not leave an aftertaste, giving the tea a clean and true character. It should be noted that natural flavours tend to be somewhat 'soft ' and the flavours slightly muted, but for many this is a refreshing change and one of the desired attributes of our naturally flavoured teas.

Hot Tea Brewing Method

Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into your teapot. For a more intense flavour, add a bit more tea. Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 - 7 minutes, to your taste. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Add milk and sugar to taste. Acceptable to drink 'straight up.'
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.

Iced Tea Brewing Method

Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the amount of tea used. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make it a little stronger as the ice will water it down.
Alternatively, you can cold brew the tea by placing the tea in a jug and adding cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
