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.
Our tea 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 our membership of the prestigious Tea Council since 1979, when the Tea Grading System was founded.
Quintessentially British, this tea takes its name from the second Earl Grey and is distinctive for its elegant flavour, delicately scented with the citrus tang of bergamot. Our blend of fine teas make this a most refreshing brew, to be drunk with or without milk or for extra citrus burst a slice of lemon.
Brodies have over 150 years experience in the art of blending tea.
