Scottish Breakfast Blend

I woke up this morning feeling quite groggy, and working the morning shift at the hospital leaves no room for dragging feet.  The Scots did it right with this blend, seamlessly blending a malty Assam, a crisp Ceylon, and a spicy Keemun.  I really enjoyed this brew with a spot of milk and some sugar.  The Keemun really adds a peppery zing to the morning blend.  Highly recommended.  Upton claims this tea is, "Blended to appeal to those who favor an eye-opening experience in the morning, this tea yields a cup with a round, full flavor, malty notes, and brisk character. A perfect choice to start the day."
