Our classic Scottish Breakfast tea blend has a fully flavored and robust taste that will help you start the day on the right foot. No breakfast is complete without a strong cup of Scottish black tea and this blend is no exception!
Brewing Tips: Our Scottish Breakfast tea blend should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a rolling boil (205-212° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Scottish Breakfast tea should be steeped for 4-5 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy this Scottish black tea!

We have been ordering tea from Mark T. Wendell Tea Co. for at least 10 years I think. Our favorite is the Scottish Breakfast tea. Strong enough for us but not to strong, wonderful flavor. We love all the tea we buy here and never order from any other company. So happy to have you as our tea supplier. Non coffee drinkers here but love our tea and consider it the best tea.
Delicious tea in a simple but elegant tin.
After trying the Scottish breakfast tea, I have to admit I have gone back to the tried and true taste of English Breakfast tea which I think is smoother. But for a change I will use the Scottish breakfast tea as well.
Wonderfully invigorating morning tea. An enjoyable tea with an extraordinary flavor.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for my order to ship?
We strive to ship orders within 2-3 days of receipt. However, due to the handcrafted nature of our products, combined with inventory limitations, some orders may take longer to ship. If there is a significant delay in shipping your order, we will contact you directly with details.
Are your teas cultivated naturally? Are they Organic?
All our teas are sourced from tea estates, suppliers and importers that we have personally worked with for decades and many for generations! We only purchase teas that have been cultivated naturally, devoid of pesticides and growth agents.
Teas that have the term “Organic” in the products name have gone through additional certification by the country or origin and USFDA. Even though all our products are natural, we are unable to list them as Organic unless they have gone through these steps. Sometimes, this certification can be costly and time consuming for growers. Each country has different regulations, so many sell the teas to us without this extra labeling.
How long does tea stay fresh?
If sealed properly and stored away from extreme hot/cold temps and moisture, tea will stay as flavorful as the day you bought it, even after 18 months.
How long should I brew my tea?
Tea brewing times and water temperature can vary between tea varieties. Please consult this link to find the best method for your tea!
