Brodies Tea and The Perfect Blend


My Mother’s Day gifts included two teas and a tea theme book.  Many of you have no doubt tried PG Tips tea, (England’s No. 1 brand).  I’m gifted with this tea quite often by hubby - by the case.  This time he also included some Brodies Famous Edinburgh tea.


It has been blended in Scotland’s capital city for over 65 years.  It states on the tin that the clipper “Isabella” brought the first cargo of tea to be landed in Scotland into Leith docks in 1833.


This tea is a good choice for those of us who like a robust blend that can stand up to the addition of milk.  You can find it in 50 bag tins, or in boxes and bags on Amazon.  The Brodies website is here

My new tea book is The Perfect Blend by Trish Perry.  It is the first in her Teashop series.  The back cover states – A fun, romantic story about tackling the unexpected moments of life with courage, faith, prayer, and good friends, and discovering how wonderfully life changing those moments can be.

I’m curious to see how Millicent’s Tea Shop will compare to Laura Child’s Indigo Tea Room.  Although this book is in my waiting to read pile, I did notice that there are some yummy sounding recipes in the back, like Individual Berry Shortcakes, Egg and Watercress Tea Sandwiches, Smokey Salmon Tea Sandwiches and Chocolate-Pecan Scones.  I’d love to hear any reviews of this novel.

Had not heard of Brodies Tea so I enjoyed learning about this one.

And I greatly enjoyed "Perfect Blend," which was very different from the tea shop mysteries. Like them both, and I'm glad they're two different genres.

I too have not heard of Brodies but sell PG in multiple sizes. I think Trish's books will be very nice as they will have a Christian slant.

I love both those brands of tea. The PG Tips is my go to tea bag and I need some more!
