This is the second part of our monthly series, newly available the second Monday of each month, on tea history covering brands of the past.
Today, we feature James McLaren & Sons, which was located at 42 Albany St in Edinburgh. James McLaren & Sons advertised themselves as blenders of grand old China Teas since the reign of George III. Below are labels for two of their teas.
First, you can see a Foochong China & Darjeeling Blend.
Here you can see a sample of their box of Sun Ray Tips Tea.
Thanks to Edinburgh City of Print for the image. You can see more of their work in Flickr.
