Brodies have been importing and blending tea since the time of the great tea clippers which docked at the bustling Port of Leith, laden with precious cargoes from the farthest corners of the earth.
Tea from Brodies of Edinburgh is still sourced from the established tea growing countries of India, Africa, Sri Lanka and China and we continue in that spirit of exploration by also working with emerging tea-growing countries such as Indonesia, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.
Another testament to our commitment to quality is Brodies membership of the prestigious Tea Council since 1979, when the Tea Grading System was founded.
Brodies select teas with varying characteristics, that when combined create a pleasing, well-balanced flavour to our special blends.
Assam gives a strong malty taste, traditionally associated with a breakfast tea, while teas from Kenya and Rwanda produce the light, bright, refreshing flavour of afternoon tea.
