He Was Drinking Scottish Blend Tea When He Said This

James Boswell, Scottish lawyer, diarist, and author said:

“I am so fond of tea that I could write a whole dissertation on its virtues. It comforts and enlivens without the risks attendant on spirituous liquors. Gentle herb! Let the florid grape yield to thee. Thy soft influence is a more safe inspirer of social joy.”

Boswell must of been enjoying a cup of Scottish Blend Tea when he said that brilliant and so true quote.  Boswell was born in Edinburgh, Scotland on October 29, 1740 and lived until May 19, 1795.  He is best-known for the biography of Samuel Johnson.
