Irish is more astringent. Scottish more round and malty.
Now that you have more experience with single Origin, unblended teas, it may be fun to make your own blend
I will be looking to see if they have any assam locally here and experiment. Doubt it I’ll come up with the same taste as Edinburg company though, even Taylor’s Scottish blend is not the same. It’s something special about it, at least to me.

You are likely to come up with something vastly better using whole leaf. These blends tend to use pretty low grade stuff.
