From Edinburgh Tea and Coffee Company

This blend is one of the lighter, delicate teas in our range, and is perfect as an afternoon tea. A large part of our Highland Blend comes from East of the Rift Valley in Kenya. The teas from this part of Kenya are grown and processed by smallholders organised as the KTDA (Kenya Tea Development Agency) cooperatives. We choose them for their bright, golden colour and fantastic flavour. We think this tea is perfect black, white or even with a slice of lemon.

I picked up a tin of this at TJ Maxx a while ago. I have had a few cups of it and love the strong flavor and the burst of energy it gives me. I have a ton on my to-do list today, so I’m starting the afternoon with a cup of this tea to get me going. The tea is a dark reddish brown color and smells deliciously malty and sweet. I seriously could swoon just smelling it. The flavor is very robust and just a little bitter. There is a nice, full, malty aftertaste. This tea takes milk and sweetener well, and becomes a smooth and bold cup. If it were just a little less bitter it would be almost perfect.

-Dry blend has small granules of black tea leaves.
-Dry leaves smell like strong black tea. Tea liquor aroma is malty and sweet.
-Tea liquor is a clear very dark reddish brown color.
-Robust and slightly bitter flavor and finish. Light malty and bitter aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. Adding milk and sweetener produces a bold and smooth flavor. Slightly bitter.

This tea is very similar to the Scottish Breakfast but tastes a little stronger. The Kenyan tea is dominate in this blend but is still much milder than any other African tea I have drank. It still has a kick to it and is not bitter at all. More steeping may cause bitterness but I like the 3 minute steep. The tea is very tasty and while it says afternoon tea, I’m drinking it for breakfast and it works. Another T.J.Maxx tea @$5 for 125 grams.

Absolutely phenomenal tea. Very strong, some of the most strong black tea I’ve ever had, but not bitter or overly harsh. Goes great with some creamer, honey and afternoon tea snacks! Also a great wake-me-up for the morning.

A very bold black tea. It smells phenomenal when brewing and really has the kick you would expect from an African tea.

The liquor is a dark red. It is much darker than most black teas I have tried in fact.

The taste is extremely bold. There is quite a bit of bitterness, almost like a black coffee in a sense . It doesn’t not taste malty or astringent, just bold.

If you’re looking for a coffee replacement, this is the tea.

Great black tea! It has the right amount of flavour without tasting tart.
