An earthy, deep tea mellowed by melty caramel is an excellent replacement for morning coffee.
Creamy and earthy; here's a Scottish blend if ever one was to be had. Unabashedly a tea to fill pot after pot with, this has all the makings of a table-ful of smiles on a Scottish afternoon. But there's more to this blend. Indeed this tisanal hails not only from Caledonian hills but also from China. Two nation's whose characters mix into an altogether unique, burnt sweetness.

Charmaine Houck Review Scottish Caramel Puerh
Often noted for its gardenial, hillside earthiness; this tea's collection is a lungful. One for discussion. From China comes this tea's more curiously healthy tinges. That's right: even in a decadent cupful of Scottish Caramel black tea, one finds a sharpness that it's said relates to the tea's slimming, sprightly properties. One's pulse needn't be the only thing that quickens at the prospect of this tisanal. Indeed a general liveliness is its companion and chief result. Whether you feel this due to the delicious creamy weight or the luxurious Chinese additions to the collection; you're sure get a lift from Scottish Caramel black tea.
Enjoy it hot with whatever hillside is nearest your window. If you're lucky, it might very well be China or Scotland. If not: do your homeland the favour of appreciating it while sipping this delicious blend.
