Unique quality of the teas grown at Dalreoch:

Combinations of the very clean Scottish mountain air and the nutrient rich soil allow for a smooth and undiluted fruitier flavours. Our first flush is always the sweetest but throughout the growing season the vegetative notes of heather and slow growing flavours of rich peat based soil.
