Crofter (Breakfast Tea)

(68 customer reviews)


A delicious breakfast tea that works anytime of day!

95 in stock (can be backordered)


Crofter Breakfast Tea was inspired by a little grey fergie. The little grey fergie has lived on the Tiree Tea croft since she was born in 1947. She is still a working tractor.

Like the fergie, Crofter Breakfast Tea is a versatile blend equally suited to breakfast, a flask on the go or, (in true Tiree style) accompanied by a couple of biscuits after an already large meal. Leaving it in a teapot on the stove to stew for a couple of hours is traditional, but entirely optional.

Hints of: baler-twine and marauding livestock

    This has more flavour and is a more interesting tea than typical Breakfast Teas.

    Beautiful packaging – and I know the recipient is going to love it!!

  3. Anonymous (verified owner)

    Delicious and lightly fragrant tea.

  4. Marion M. (verified owner)

    Just as lovely with or without milk! Rivals the major brands – in fact I thought there was more tea in the bag than with the big brands?

  11. Gary Miller (verified owner)

    Maybe a wee postcard included- giving background to your business and a photo of the unique setting – would make it even more interesting

    The tea was braw. Nice blend. In a spirit of positive feedback, and I hope not in the spirit of a ‘blow-in’ I’d suggest you move from the plastic tea bag to some kind of compostable containers for the leaf tea. I realise this could be tricky on the island but if your tea-bags are being made off island then it should be possible. If you mentioned this in your marketing materials, I think it would help your sales. HTH

      Hi Wylie! Thanks so much for your feedback! The tea bags themselves are in fact plastic free and 100% biodegradable – it sounds like I could definitely do a better job of highlighting that! From the next production run, the pouches will be degradable within 12-24 months in the general waste stream. Glad you enjoyed the tea 🙂

  20. Seonaid Baillie (verified owner)

    The tea is refreshing – strong (enough for a couple of mugs in this household!) – and the packaging is absolutely brilliant. Such a lovely “taste of Tiree” 🙂

    A lovely tasty tea for anytime of day. Very good to see the tea bags themselves do not contain any plastic.
    The order arrived earlier than expected too.

  61. Sandra Schlemper (verified owner)

    Interesting taste, definitely not run-of-the-mill!

  62. Carol Kirkpatrick (verified owner)

    We spent holidays on Tiree for years and for my 60th Birthday in May a generous friend sent me a hamper containing gin, chocolate and your delicious tea.
    We recently watched a program on BBC ALBA about folks on Tiree and recognised that you must be the person behind the tea. Thinking of the lack of tourists on the island I wanted to do a tiny bit to support your endeavours.
    Daughter and boyfriend are visiting in September (camping) so hopefully they’ll bring more back then.
    I love the fact that the producers are getting together.
    The packaging and stories is just great – love it!
    I wish you every success.

    I recently bought a Sandwick Bay candle and along with it I received a “Tiree Tea“ sample teabag. As soon as I tasted it I knew I had to order some! It makes such a refreshing cup of tea and also it’s so nice to see “local” businesses starting up. I highly recommend this company.
