Product Description


Murchie's Scottish Breakfast tea is blended to be full bodied, brisk, malty and oaky, with a hint of natural smokiness. Great with milk and sugar – or drink it ‘neat’ for a rich, robust cup.


With this strong, well-rounded black blend with Assam, Ceylon and Yunnan teas, Murchie’s celebrates our Scottish heritage. (Grandpa John Murchie emigrated to Canada from Scotland, where he delivered teas in the Scottish Highlands)

My new FavouriteReview by Rupert's mother
I tried my first cup today, upon the 5th sip I was thinking I had just tasted my new favourite! Bold, smooth, with an interesting aroma. (Posted on 2016-05-12)
All time favoriteReview by clh
I have been drinking Murchie's since I first tasted their Empress Afternoon tea in Victoria in 1995. Their teas are always consistently wonderful. But Scottish Breakfast has become my favorite. It never disappoints. A lovely strong cuppa! (Posted on 2016-04-09)
SuperbReview by Joan
Murchie's Scottish Breakfast is a delight to wake up with. Rich taste that does not disappoint. I will re-order this tea again and again. (Posted on 2015-11-24)
Malty & smoothReview by Christine
I love a strong malty Assam with a touch of milk in the mornings. A US resident I mail order Murchie's because of the superior quality. I tried Scottish Breakfast recently and it's my new favorite. Bold and flavorful, smooth as velvet. Simply perfect. (Posted on 2014-12-14)
Wonderful & SatisfyingReview by Dave S
For many years I've enjoyed Assam in the morning with occasional pots of Ceylon tea just for a pleasant change. But Scottish Breakfast Tea is now my 1st choice in the morning. Thanks Murchies!

Love this tea-strong, yet smooth and malty. I usually drink Assam and this satisfies. (Posted on 2013-10-03)
Won’t be disappointedReview by TeaOverCoffee
I bought this when it first came out. And WOW! This is a smooth tasting tea. Scrumptious is a word you would use to describe this tea. Must try. (Posted on 2013-09-23)
a favouriteReview by Mandy
I tried the Scottish Breakfast tea today for the first time and I was quite impressed. If you enjoy a strong full bodied cup of tea with a hint of malty oaky flavour this is a good choice. (Posted on 2013-09-19)
