Details

We are very proud to present you another one of our own blends. 

This one was blended for the Harris & Lewis Smokehouse in Stornoway. The customer had asked for a blend, which has a connection to the island and that also could work as a bit of a palate cleanser. They thought it a good idea to serve it in their restaurant, so it had to go with their fabulous product among which is an outstanding smoked salmon.

A tea with a difference

As a base we picked a Keemun tea, a black tea from China, from the province of Anhui to be precise. This is the province where Sir James Matheson, who once owned the Isle of Lewis, imported the tea to Britain. As Keemun was very fashionable at the time, the chances, that a Keemun tea was served at the Lews Castle in Stornoway are quite high. Another tea we offer is the Keemun on its own, which we named the Castle Brew, which makes sense.

We added a bit of this and that to the Keemun, to get a bit of a peat or smoky taste, but not too much, just a hint, and rounded it up with an Earl Grey tea. You will smell the peat but also the fresh citrus and Bergamot scent from the Earl Grey.

The tea is mild and the combination of different flavours an absolute match in heaven.

If you ever come to Stornoway, please visit the Harris & Lewis Smokehouse, enjoy good food and a nice cup of tea as well.
