Hebridean Tea Range

The Hebridean tea range – celebrating the island life

The Outer Hebrides are a special place. Nestled at the outer edge of Europe they sometimes seem to a lot of people like the end of the world.

But for us who live here we can proudly say: it is not as it seems! There are two groups of people living up here. Those who were born here and those who chose to live here. I am one of those who live here by choice, so more or less classed as an “incomer”. Most people who have chosen to live here usually have one thing in common: they love the islands and the island life. Living in a rural community has its benefits, but – of course – also some downsides. But I don’t want to rant about all the good and bad things. Well, maybe one good thing for me is definitely to start the tea store. My personal homage to the islands therefore is my Hebridean tea range which I would like to introduce to you:

Let’s start with a day on the island!

Hebridean Bad Weather Tea

Just the right thing you need when you have been out and about in the Scottish weather. Which can be rough, as we all know, because only in Scotland you may experience all four seasons in a day…

Island Life

Castle Brew
castle brew keemun teaSir Matheson, who once owned the Isle of Lewis and built the Lewis Castle, made his fortune with importing silk, opium and tea. Most of the tea he later imported with Jardine, Matheson and Company amongst which was Keemun tea from the province of Anhui. So it is more than likely that  tea like our Castle Brew was also served up at the castle.
