Help. Can you identify a mystery blend?

I've been asked by a reader of the blog (Jason, from Tasmania in Australia) for help identifying (and possibly sourcing) a blend called "Caledonia Medium".

It was the favourite blend of Jason's late Uncle for many years and he used to get it from Herbert Love in Queensferry Street (now closed unfortunately).

If anyone recognises the name and can suggest a possible replacement source, please let me know and I will let Jason know.

I'm guessing that if Caledonia Medium wasn't blended by Herbert Love themselves, it might have been a re-labelled bulk blend from one of the major suppliers. If this is the case, it might be available elsewhere under a different name.

Thanks in advance for any help.

  1. Although you may also have seen the same thing, I have continued to find results for a 'A&C Petersen Blue Caledonian' described as medium. Do you happen to have anything further go search upon say the tin with some description of the main (albeit obscure) leaves involved in this blend? Also a simple search for 'Caledonian' on lists quite a few name based matches, however again the contents are going to be the key. I hope you find someone who actually knows this blend! Best of luck :)
