Tea for Scotland
Highlanders are well known for their loyalty and robust vigour and this is reflected in the tea that many favour. This tea is robust, malty (not unlike a good scotch) and full of life and vigour. Highlanders tend to like their tea very strong with hints of cask oak.
Scottish Breakfast gives a strong and invigorating start to the day but can be drunk at any time. This tea is also superb served with lemon and sugar as a refreshing change from milk and to warm you up on a typical bracing highland day.
It's now time to throw away the teabags and try a great taste experience. You may not believe the difference that comes with using premium tea and brewing in the old fashioned way. Just as coffee has seen a revival with millions of people changing from instants to fresh roast beans, so also has tea been seeing a revival with new tea houses opening around the country, and the world.
Hot Tea Brewing Method
Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup (and add 1 teaspoon for the pot) into your teapot. Pour boiling water into the pot and let it steep for about 3 - 7 minutes. Pour into your cup and enjoy.
Alternatively, put the tea in a tea infuser and brew right in your cup.
Add milk and sugar to taste.
Iced Tea Brewing Method
Make as for hot, but add extra tea - when the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice.
