Smile Best scottish tea?

I am flying to California next week and want to bring some scottish tea for my teammates Which one do you like most?

I am currently drinking Welsh Brew which is clearly not scottish, but a gift from a dear friend

So what's your favorite black tea?

Thanks,
Mona

Scottish blend tea bags claim to be "specially blended for Scottish water" - I usually buy them although I'm not a great tea connoisseur.

I suppose it depends on the water as to what tea makes a good brew.

I use Ringtons Tea(Newcastle Company that deliver to your door and they do have a few
shops in England) and also Yorkshire Tea.

I also use tea leaves and they do have to be Ringtons one's, I do find tea leaves make a
stronger blend !

I did find that the Scottish Blend Tea didn't make a strong enough cuppa for me when we
lived in Aberdeen.
