What comes to mind when you are thinking of the Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides?
An island with beautiful sandy beaches on the west coast, which are amongst the most beautiful beaches in the world, mind you!
But also stones, rocks and a rugged coastline in the east.
The Isle of Harris Tea ™ has its own charme and a kind of a wild natural beauty which inspired us in blending this great tea here.
Like the island itself - a lot of substance and rough around the edges.
We blended this tea for the Isle of Harris Distillery but as of 2017 it is also available from our shop in Stornoway and online.
The Isle of Harris Tea™ is a good, strong Assam blend with a hint of smoke (Lapsang Souchong) to honour the peat which is still cut on the island today
